I’m a strong supporter of the Genealogical Proof Standard and of free wiki sites for genealogy. Both are needed to help clean up a lot of the “junk genealogy” that is everywhere on-line. I’ve also recently become interested in genetic genealogy and the potential for on-line learning. Although I’ve posted information on FamilySearch and WikiTree, I still find WeRelate the best site in terms of flexibility and the potential for really good quality research.
For me, genealogy is so much more than names and dates; it’s one of the best ways to learn history, particularly as seen from the perspective of people who actually lived it. Now, if only I can get all my information onto WeRelate, along with some of those stories I’ve learned about some very human ancestors!
