Tracing our History Chat Chanels are Open

Tracing our History is developing a set of tools for enhancing the ability of family members to trace our history together in a collaborative and interactive manner. To do this I am setting up channels and groups within various social networks and web applications. All of these tools and sites provide a plethora of free opportunities for family members to help make our family research more interesting, exciting and useful for all. Please consider joining one or all of these sites listed on the ‘Research Collaboration Features’ page at Tracing our History.

I have now set up two real time chat/file sharing possibilities via the collaboration page, with two different social networking sites (Pip.io and Micromobs). To get involved with either site or both you will need to join the site and the channel that I have set up (on each of the sites). You can find both sites via the link above or go directly to Pip.io and/or Micromobs at:

The Tracing our History channel at Pip.io can be found via the link below:

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

This television show has been around for a while now, but I have only just now watched the very first episode of the Australian version. The episode was about the family history of Australian actor Jack Thompson. It was a very interesting presentation and I think the show will certainly ignite the interest of many people in researching their own family history. I’m a fan of the show now, for sure.

I believe there is also an English version of the show. The Australian version is available on DVD and is shown on SBS television.
