“If we are to become better genealogists….”

RogerMoffat : April 10, 2012 10:53 pm : Announcements

“If we are to become better genealogists, then we need a better storage format.” So writes FHISO organizer and BetterGEDCOM wiki member, A.C. “Tony” Proctor in his latest article. His work, “Building a BetterGEDCOM: Building a Better World,” appears in the current (April 2012) issue of Your Family History.

Tony’s article introduces FHISO and touches on many BetterGEDCOM discussion topics, including the need for the new format to be “”flexible and accommodating ” toward the definition of the family unit. By golly, he managed to highlight both “E&C” and Elizabeth Shown Mills in the same article!

Great job, Tony.

To read the full text of Tony’s article, visit the publisher’s site (below) or search Amazon.com for “Your Family History.”

Introducing FHISO

FHISO : January 27, 2012 9:05 pm : Announcements

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.
