    Tech Tuesday: Help for Genealogy Websites is Here

    Web searches can turn up the most serendipitous surprises! In searching for an online image of a will written by one of my ancestors prior to 1850 -- just another one of the weekly homework assignments for my online genealogy course -- I stumbled upon a well-designed personal genealogy site maintained by Pat Geary. Family Genealogy is much more than the online home to the "Geary, Jewel, Tucker, & Little Families," it is also Pat's pilot project to model elegant web design and offer assistance for other online family historians. She writes,
    Do you need some help with the design and layout of your genealogy site? I am willing to work with you on this project. Why? Because I enjoy doing it and it is my way of "paying it forward" for all of the help I have received. I do this on a volunteer basis so may occasionally have to limit the amount of time I can spend with you.
    Pat also teaches online courses and provides links and resources for genealogy website design at her website, Genealogy Web Creations and at her blog Genealogy Computer Tips & Tutorials. New web design courses will be starting April 5, 2009.

    It is obvious that Pat is a very busy lady, but her spirit of generosity is one that seems to run strong in the genealogy world. I am looking forward to spending more time exploring her web site and tutorials. . . and if I can't find a Winsor Last Will & Testament fairly soon, I may try to adopt Samuel Wood !
