In the early days of Genealogy/Family History Research gatherings/Reunions, the researchers would arrive at the designated meeting place, armed with boxes of folders and files they were working on. They would begin their meetings and discuss different family groups, gathering new and updated information throughout the meeting. The method of communicating with each other during the times between the meetings was by USPS mail in the form of written correspondence or Newsletters.
These early Newsletters would contain information concerning Weddings, Anniversaries, Births, Deaths, Reunion Meeting Plans, Visitation, and on and on. One would wait for the next correspondence in anticipation of some additional “good news” that would benefit their search efforts.
In our new times of advanced technical capabilities, GEDCOM Family Histories are often created “online” so that other researchers might review the file content as they hope to come up with new data on their missing links. Many of the larger Companies have solicited GEDCOM files to add to their mass storage areas, some of which are not accessible without a paid membership.
This new “onlinefamilynetwork.org” website not only provides you with yet another place to store and share your GEDCOM database, it also presents you with a means of sharing your “Family Newsletter” you have developed on your family surnames, collectively or individually.
Please review the Newsletters that already exist on this website and then consider generating and inputing your own Family Newsletter for others to see.
One of the features of this new website is it’s ability to notify those individuals signed up on your Family ((Newsletter area ?????)) that there is a new Newsletter “online” that they might want to take a look at.
Thank you for your time. Hope you share your Newsletters (monthly, quarterly or annually) with the multitude of researchers looking for something like this to spend their time reading and researching.
If you have concerns, let us hear from you via the “Contact Us” page.
