Ehm … I was totally going to blog something today, but then I found this site, which is so cool I’ve spent all of the Hatchling’s nap filling stuff in. I don’t know if it’s a symptom of being the oldest kid or what, but I LUUUUURVE family trees. Charting one’s ancestry is such a cool way to learn about history and to feel connected with past people and eras. And this site is teh awesome for many reasons, primary among them being:

1. It’s free.
2. It was not unduly perplexed by my wacked out family structure. (My stepparents used to be married to one another. Ponder THAT for a minute and then try to figure out how you’d fit it on a family tree.)
3. It’s remarkably powerful and customizeable, with cool different views and the capability to store oodles of information on each person entered into the tree.

Anyway – if you groove on organizing your family information in a Web 2.0 manner, Geni is totally worth checking out.
