Latest in social networking, the Encyclopedia of Genealogy
As reported in the Cincinnati Post, "Encyclopedia of Genealogy created, updated by readers," the powerful and progressive impact of social networking sites continues to transform the Internet as well as online genealogical research with the ever-increasing popularity of interactive web sites such as the free-content Encyclopedia of Genealogy. Similar to the tremendously popular and sometimes controversial web-based interactive encyclopedia, Wikipedia, entries within the Encyclopedia of Genealogy are created, edited and updated entirely by its readers. The project is sponsored by Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter and online genealogy bookstores RootsBooks.com and RootsBooks.co.uk.
