About-FHISO2---for-website-750

The Family History Information Standards Organisation (FHISO) is an international organisation established for the purpose of developing and recommending information standards for genealogy and family history purposes. It exists to bring together genealogy companies of all sizes, as well as professional genealogists and hobbyists, to collaborate on standards that will benefit the work of genealogists around the world.

The standards development process was initiated March 22, 2013, with an historic Open Call for Papers.

Drew Smith, Chair of FHISO, sums it up this way: “The mechanical, electrical, and digital products and services that we use every day function as well as they do because international standards organizations were formed in the early 20th century, and the standards they created were adopted by all successful manufacturers and service providers. FHISO was created to do the same thing for the information-based products and services of the genealogical community. When both companies and consumers join us in the work that we exist to do, they make it easier for all genealogists to create, transform, and share information without the risk of unintended change or loss.”
