Genealogists can now navigate Live Roots geographically
I released a new feature on LiveRoots.com that allows you to navigate around the globe and see what genealogy resources are available. The process of geocoding the cataloged resources is still in progress (currently about 85% complete). All new resources are being geocoded as they are added, and will automatically appear on the navigate feature pages. To accommodate this new feature, I modified the top menu bar options (refer to the About option for an explanation what each of the other options offer). Also, today I merged the Transcribed Ephemera results into the Surname Results, reducing the time it takes for a search, and the number of clicks it will take to view all the results.
