Genealogy is a great hobby but, sadly, too often those who are new to it try to ‘reinvent the wheel’. With so much that could be done, why not let this site give you a great start and then use your time to work on whatever interests you. If you come across something really interesting then we may be able to help you share that with others. Isn’t that what the Internet is for?
Even though we do not cover recent generations, our Families Database is one of the largest online databases of genealogical data. It covers thousands of families. Response to the database was really positive back in 2002. Every year since then, more families have been added and many improvements have been made, with more of Genealogy’s traps identified & corrected and connections found between families. If you have not seen it before, do have a look at it. Even if you are already an experienced genealogist, it would be surprising indeed if you had looked at every family we have covered or source we have used.
Those of you who take an interest in this site will have seen mention made a few times over recent years of the intent by Peter, Stirnet’s executive, to arrange for another makeover of the site. Part of the reason for that is to make it easier for him to involve other parties as and when he becomes ready to reduce his involvement in the site (which, please be assured, is not expected for several years yet). You will have seen little change to the structure of the site since March 2014, the last time it was redone, but change is afoot! It may take another year or so to come to fruition but thoughts are coming together and gradually forming into plans to ensure the continuity of this site for many decades to come.
