A whole year has passed since I started this blog, and my hasn’t the world of genealogy changed!
Other sofa genealogists have been taking advantage of all the extra genealogy tools available on line, and the internet genealogy sites are booming.
But internet genealogy has it’s own unique downfalls.
When Ancestry suffered a DDoS attack, there were many disorientated armchair genealogist floating around the world wide web, pondering on the first world problem of not being able to find their ancestors, with many users bemoaning their ‘captivity’.
I on the other hand had to deal with a two year old who thought banging on my Mac Keyboard was a grand idea, and broke it in the process. Thank god i back up my hard drive or there would have been serious issues for the family histories I am writing up for clients!
Moral of the story is, technological advantages are great, but like paper records they need the right care and attention or they break. Be it through malicious DDoS attacks or over enthusiastic two year olds.
Thankfully, despite setbacks in the world of genealogy, Crea and Co Genealogy is still going strong, and it’s our first birthday!
