Introducing FHISO

Family History Information Standards Organisation, or FHISO, is a proud sponsor of the Build a BetterGEDCOM Project–the grassroots effort powered by ideas that got it all started.

FHISO will be community owned. Its members will work transparently and collaboratively to identify, develop and maintain voluntary, open, consensus-based technical standards for international use. This work includes publishing the standards, including the the relevant documentation, and providing further services to encourage acceptance and adoption of the published standards. FHISO standards will be publicly available at zero or minimal cost on a non-discriminatory basis. Anyone will be able to implement the standards for any purpose without royalty or license fees.

Look for FHISO and BetterGEDCOM representatives at RootsTech 2012, and please participate with us in the featured presentations listed below:
