If you are a Second Life fan, here's some good news. Genealogy Today announced the release of a software gadget for residents in the Second Life (SL) virtual world. This new tool, called the Genealogy HUD, allows SL residents (also known as avatars) to seamlessly access many of the resources at LiveRoots.com from within the virtual reality environment.

Virtual reality has been compared with genealogy for the way its participants connect at an emotional level; to read more about it, see our January 2007 entry, "I think therefore I am Uncle Charlie."
