Data gathering tools (new, to me) As a genealogist that conducts much of his research on the web, good data and image gathering tools are extremely helpful. As a person who relies heavily on the PC as a genealogical repository and information processor, tools that help me sort and process the information I gather are highly valued (prized). In all fairness, I also ought to restate that I rarely (VERY rarely) work with any software outside of the OpenSource (or Free) realm unless I have a hugely compelling reason to do so. I must, additionally, admit that I am very new to many (read almost all) of these tools.

Banner creation tool : Learning Management System : The University of Melbourne LMS subjects and communities are provided with a basic default template which is fully customisable. As subject coordinator, you can customise the subject by adding or removing items from the subject menu, adding and removing items from content pages, changing the default entry point, changing the colour scheme (animated guide) and/or adding a subject banner. Many subjects are taught from year to year so you may be starting with a copy of the previously taught materials inside your subject. It is important to check all material for compliance with the University's copyright obligations, as well as reviewing the relevance, availability and currency of the material, especially if adaptive release rules have been used. Subjects on the LMS must show certain features (as defined in the LMS framework):

That's my family - Origin and purposes of the federated search engine Marriage Records Index: The Your Folks database is associated to the federated search engine. Discover more than 3 millions marriage records for the Quebec population between 1621 and 2004. The federated search engine offered on this page was launched and is maintained by Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ). Library and Archives Canada (LAC) partners with BAnQ to oversee the evolution of this project which is also supported by the Council of Provincial and Territorial Archivists (CPTA) of Canada. The search tool, free of charge and available in French and in English, leads to genealogy and family history databases hosted by federal, provincial or territorial archives centres and libraries, or by other partners. The quality of the results obtained by using the federated search engine depends on the nature and structure of the information collected in the searched databases.

Epic online reunification of the descendants of the great Irish clans A ground-breaking and innovative online project is under way to reconnect all of the descendants of Ireland. Based on the concept of the Irish Clan name, the Great Irish Online Clan Gathering is seeking to build the international profile of Ireland and its people by connecting to an audience that may never have known of their direct links to Ireland via their surname. The Great Irish Online Clan Gathering (operated by the Irish Clans Network, an organisation funded by charitable donations from anonymous benefactors), is an extraordinary effort to join, connect and engage all those people throughout the world who have an Irish surname themselves OR have an Irish surname within their family tree.

Genealogy Citation Guides The rapid growth of the Internet has outstripped the pace at which citation standards have been revised to include Internet sources. So, the purpose of this page is to serve as a guideline, if preliminary, to citing genealogically related material found on the Internet. For the most part, the citation examples below are modeled after traditional citation styles.

A dedicated search engine for genealogy research. The main advantage to using a dedicated tool like this is that it filters out the noise from standard search engines (Google, Bing, etc) by harvesting data from family search websites. They also include searches in digital documents that they make available via their website (Mocavo Documents) Mocavo also offer a multitude of facets that can be used to filter out content such as date of birth, excluding words and word proximity. Unfortunately this feature is available to premium users (for a fee) only. I can only appreciate, working on my genealogy abroad, that such tools are making their appearance in search even though, by itself, Mocavo is not the single genealogy website to use for your family research. by marylenegoulet Apr 5
