Subject: RE: [HURON] New Genelaogy On-line Program---Excellent site!

I don't have a GED file to contribute, but I want so say--- this is a very
well organized site. I'm so impressed. The site is very easy to maneuver.
I found a person with the surname NESBIT and have emailed the administrator
with a request to be put in touch with the owner of the file.
Keep up the good work. Excellent site!
Searching NESBIT and MCCOUCHIN in Perth, Lanark, & Renfrew, ON and Vinton
and Calumet Island, QC
A new system has been added at http://www.tavistock.net/gedview which will
become part of the Tavistock web site when opened in May.
It's an on-line web genealogy program (basically similar to Persoanl
Ancestry File, Lineages, Brothers Keeper, etc but with many more features)
with a wide assortment of charts and options for the public, as well as
including a number of innovative ways for contributors to look after their
I'm initially looking for 3 individuals from this list who have done their
own research and have gedcoms from the Huron area and who would like to
participate in the site.
The info would be made public but privacy controls are built in for each
individual gedcom. You would control your own data and be able to take
public input and approve any changes.
You can see a preliminary setup at http://www.tavistock.net/gedview
Only the "Tavistock & Area" gedcom is available for viewing at present and
then only for dead persons. It is merely meant to show how the system works
without interfering with current system input and configuration.
Of course, live persons will be shown when it goes on-line.
Currently, about 25,000 names are in the system.
I am looking for persons with good sized gedcoms whose last century roots
are in Oxford, Perth and Waterloo and whose forebears moved westward into
the Huron District.
This will allow for the updating and linkage of the gedcoms from the base
counties already in the system.
Although the site will be open to the public, this data will be protected by
privacy controls. Only contributors will have more specific access and be
able to alter their own data or add additional controls.
Of course, contributors will have access to current databases and receive
additional research help.
