Good idea! <br /> <br /> The first task is to collect basic information about your close family members. <br /> <br /> Ask your relatives about names, dates and places, photograph or scan family pictures and papers, and search online databases. <br /> <strong>1 – Ask your relatives about names, dates and places</strong><br /> <br /> This first step is very important and fruitful. Ask your parents, your grandparents, your uncles and aunts... They will give you clues for further research. But most of all, ask them about their lives and take notes. That's how you will start your family history.<br /> <br /> Then, try to reach extended family members as they can also have some information and material about your family history.<br /> <br /> You can now <a href="http://www.geneanet.org/arbres/splash/">create your family tree</a> on GeneaNet.<br /> <br /> <strong><img title="" style="float: right; margin: 0 0 1em 1em;" alt="" src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_6/EN-start-family-tree-01.jpg" />2 – Photograph or scan family pictures and papers</strong><br /> <br /> First, search search the attic or garage of your family members for old pictures and papers. You will be amazed at what you can find in a shoebox!<br /> <br /> Then, ask your extended family members as pictures and papers may have scattered over the years.<br /> <br /> Take a copy of every picture and document!.<br /> <br /> <strong>3 – Organize your genealogy research.</strong><br /> <br /> Now, all of these pictures and documents must be sorted and recorded.<br /> <br /> Be sure to note the source of every document.<br /> <br /> GeneaNet can help you organize your family pictures and archival records!<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.geneanet.org/gallery/media_manager/index.php">Create your own online photo album</a> on GeneaNet.<br /> <a href="http://www.geneanet.org/archives/actes/gestion/">Upload and share archival records</a> on GeneaNet.<br /> <br /> <strong><img title="" style="float: right; margin: 0 0 1em 1em;" alt="" src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_6/EN-start-family-tree-02.jpg" />4 – Search online databases.</strong><br /> <br /> Don't hesitate to search the Internet for your ancestors.

Since then, the old family tree software was still available.<br /> <br /> This transitional period will expire on June 30, 2014, and all the Geneanet members will have to use the new family tree software.<br /> <br /> <img src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_7/EN-old-software-retired-01.jpg" alt="" style="margin: 0 auto; display: block;" title="" /> http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2014/06/Geneanet-Retires-Its-Old-Family-Tree-Software.html#comment-form http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/feed/atom/comments/31151 Do You Know The Geneanet Facebook Page? urn:md5:f1a08d57e6c454771797330b0452aae9 2014-06-09T08:00:00+02:00 2014-06-08T09:06:19+02:00 Geneanet (Jean-Yves) GeneaNet Tips <img title="" style="float: left; margin: 0 1em 1em 0;" alt="" src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_7/EN-facebook-page-00.jpg" />If you would like to keep in touch with Geneanet, find out about news, events, upcoming services and options, and much more, then why not check out our Facebook page?<br /> <br /> If you need help with your family history research, you can also post your question there.<br /> <br /> Click the following link to join us on Facebook: <a href="https://www.facebook.com/Geneanet.en">https://www.facebook.com/Geneanet.en</a><br /> <br /> You can also follow Geneanet on:<br /> - Twitter: <a href="https://twitter.com/geneanetdotorg">https://twitter.com/geneanetdotorg</a><br /> - LinkedIn: <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/company/geneanet">https://www.linkedin.com/company/geneanet</a><br /> <br /> <img src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_7/EN-facebook-page-02.jpg" alt="" style="margin: 0 auto; display: block;" title="" /> http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2014/06/Do-You-Know-The-Geneanet-Facebook-Page.html#comment-form http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/feed/atom/comments/31065 Genealogy and Headstones: Participate! urn:md5:422ae89ec296909f7a4d68010c10193b 2014-06-02T08:00:00+02:00 2014-05-30T16:59:40+02:00 Geneanet (Jean-Yves) GeneaNet Tips <img title="" style="float: left; margin: 0 1em 1em 0;" alt="" src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_7/EN-genealogy-and-headstones-00.jpg" />Geneanet has a big collection of pictures of headstones and memorials.<br /> <br />These pictures are shared for free by the Geneanet members.<br /> <br />When you are looking for an individual in the Geneanet database, the search engine can return pictures of headstones and memorials if they are indexed.<br /> <br /> Take a few moments to play your part and index some pictures! <p>How to participate?</p> <p>On the <a href="http://www.geneanet.org/gallery/?action=about&rubrique=monuments">home page of the pictures of headstones &amp; memorials</a>, click the 'Index now' button.</p> <p><img src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_7/EN-genealogy-and-headstones-02.jpg" alt="" style="margin: 0 auto; display: block;" title="" /></p> <p>A picture is displayed.</p> <p>If names are already indexed, click the link (1), then go to another picture (2).</p> <p><img src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_7/EN-genealogy-and-headstones-03.jpg" alt="" style="margin: 0 auto; display: block;" title="" /></p> <p>To index names, click the 'Add a person' button, enter data (full names, dates, etc.) in the form, then click 'OK' (3).</p> <p>Then, go to another picture.</p> <p><img src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_7/EN-genealogy-and-headstones-04.jpg" alt="" style="margin: 0 auto; display: block;" title="" /></p> <p>Try it now!</p> <p><a href="http://www.geneanet.org/gallery/?action=detail&amp;rubrique=monuments&amp;id=203779&amp;random=1"><img src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_7/EN-genealogy-and-headstones-05.jpg" alt="" style="margin: 0 auto; display: block;" title="" /></a></p> <p>The more we are, the more we can do.

What will happen to your data after you're dead?<br /> <br /> This is the question that many people ask.<br /> <br /> <strong>Who owns your data on Geneanet?</strong><br /> <br /> You own your Geneanet data.<br /> <br /> Each Geneanet data is linked to a single account and every member can delete their data at any time (family tree, pictures, archival records, etc.)<br /> <br /> Geneanet don't keep your data and personal information after you have deleted your account.<br /> <br /> Geneanet will never sell your data and will never share it with third parties.<br /> <br /> <strong>And what happens to your data after you're dead?</strong><br /> <br /> If Geneanet is notified about the death of a member, their account and their data are immediately deleted.<br /> <br /> But the the family of the dead can ask Geneanet not to delete the account. If so, data will still be available to Geneanet visitors but newsletters will not be send anymore to the given email address. This is a good way to memorialise the genealogy research of a loved one. http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2014/05/What-Happens-To-Your-Data-After-You-re-Dead.html#comment-form http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/feed/atom/comments/30703 Geneanet Is Now Available In Portuguese! urn:md5:cc017fc3abfde809036e3d7d0eeedd44 2014-05-05T08:00:00+02:00 2014-04-29T11:57:12+02:00 Geneanet (Jean-Yves) GeneaNet Tips <img title="" style="float: left; margin: 0 1em 1em 0;" alt="" src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_7/EN-portuguese-version-00.jpg" />We are pleased to announce that Geneanet is now available in Portuguese!<br /> <br /> In 2009 and 2010, we have added the Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish translation, and today, we are extending our activities to Portugal and Brazil.

There are many archives and they are of good quality, so there are many discoveries to come for those who have roots and relatives there.<br /> <br /> New genealogists will be able to join Geneanet and to build and share their family tree, and it will serve all of us.<br /> <br /> Welcome to the new version of Geneanet.<br /> <br /> <em>Note: Of course, you can view data from Portugal and Brazil even if you are not using the Portuguese version of the Geneanet website.</em> http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2014/05/Geneanet-Is-Now-Available-In-Portuguese.html#comment-form http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/feed/atom/comments/30694 What's Your Ancestor Score? urn:md5:f52749b42ccb05bb1fa4e4322ddb5656 2014-04-28T08:00:00+02:00 2014-04-25T16:54:23+02:00 Geneanet (Jean-Yves) GeneaNet Tips <img title="" style="float: left; margin: 0 1em 1em 0;" alt="" src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_7/EN-ancestor-score-00.jpg" />How to know how complete your family tree is?<br /> <br /> This question may sound strange. What should we talk about? Quantity or quality?<br /> <br /> Randy Seaver gives us a simple solution in a blog post entitled <a href="http://www.geneamusings.com/2014/01/saturday-night-genealogy-fun-whats-your.html">"What's Your Ancestor Score?</a>".<br /> <br /> Here's how to easily calculate your Ancestor Score with Geneanet. <br />Genealogy is a long term hobby and we need to collect as many sources as we can to build our family tree.<br /> <br /> The following is not an encouragement to accept mistakes and poor quality work but, from time to time, it can be interesting to evaluate the job already done and to motivate ourselves.<br /> <br /> <strong>How to:</strong><br /> <br /> This is simple and efficient.<br /> <br /> Compare the number of possible ancestors with the number of identified ancestors on a 10-generation report.<br /> <br /> The percentage is your Ancestor Score.<br /> <br /> Here is an example with my own family tree:<br /> <br /> <img src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_7/EN-ancestor-score-01.jpg" alt="" style="margin: 0 auto; display: block;" title="" /><br /> <br /> My Ancestor Score is 41.25 %.

Choose your own rules.<br /> <br /> <strong>What do you think about this?</strong><br /> <br /> My Ancestor Score is 41.25 %.

margin: 0 1em 1em 0;" title="" />GeneaNet is a collaborative genealogy website where members can publish and share their data.<br /> <br /> The more data you publish, the more interesting GeneaNet is. But genealogy research also means data privacy, reliability and active connection between searchers.<br /> <br /> Here are some good practices for online genealogy research. <br /><br /> <strong>1. You are visiting a family tree on GeneaNet.</strong><br /> <br /> <strong><em>Reliability of data</em></strong><br /> <br /> Nobody's perfect and everybody makes mistakes! There can be mistakes in the records and in the collaborative family trees.<br /> <br /> GeneaNet will help you saving time in your genealogy research but don't copy data from other trees into yours, use the info as 'clues' only.<br /> <br /> <img src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_5/Screenshot__10050.jpg" alt="Screenshot__10050.jpg" style="float: right; margin: 0 0 1em 1em;" title="Screenshot__10050.jpg, May 2013" /><strong><em>Contact the family tree owner</em></strong><br /><br />You have found interesting data. You have found a mistake. You want to know more about an information. You have additional information about a family tree. You have found a possible family link. Contact the family tree owner!<br /> <br />Like in real life, respect and courtesy are important when dealing with people virtually.<br /> <br /> You will learn more about your ancestors and your genealogy research will be more interesting.<br /> <br /> <strong>2. You have published your family tree on GeneaNet.</strong><br /> <br /> <strong><em>Privacy!</em></strong><br /> <br />Don't publish information about your close family on the Internet. GeneaNet offers tools to protect your data privacy.<br /> <br /> <strong><em>Reliability: Cite your sources!</em></strong><br /> <br /> This is a basic rule!

But genealogy research also means data privacy, reliability and active connection between searchers.<br /> <br /> Here are some good practices for online genealogy research. <br /><br /> <strong>1. You are visiting a family tree on GeneaNet.</strong><br /> <br /> <strong><em>Reliability of data</em></strong><br /> <br /> Nobody's perfect and everybody makes mistakes! There can be mistakes in the records and in the collaborative family trees.<br /> <br /> GeneaNet will help you saving time in your genealogy research but don't copy data from other trees into yours, use the info as 'clues' only.<br /> <br /> <img src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_5/Screenshot__10050.jpg" alt="Screenshot__10050.jpg" style="float: right; margin: 0 0 1em 1em;" title="Screenshot__10050.jpg, May 2013" /><strong><em>Contact the family tree owner</em></strong><br /><br />You have found interesting data. You have found a mistake. You want to know more about an information. You have additional information about a family tree. You have found a possible family link. Contact the family tree owner!<br /> <br />Like in real life, respect and courtesy are important when dealing with people virtually.<br /> <br /> You will learn more about your ancestors and your genealogy research will be more interesting.<br /> <br /> <strong>2. You have published your family tree on GeneaNet.</strong><br /> <br /> <strong><em>Privacy!</em></strong><br /> <br />Don't publish information about your close family on the Internet. GeneaNet offers tools to protect your data privacy.<br /> <br /> <strong><em>Reliability: Cite your sources!</em></strong><br /> <br /> This is a basic rule! When citing your sources, you can prove the reliability of your family tree and you can easily remember which records you have already found for each individual in your family tree.<br /> <br /> <img src="http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/public/Blog_EN_5/210023-Ramses-II-at-the-Nubian-Museum-1.jpg" alt="210023-Ramses-II-at-the-Nubian-Museum-1.jpg" style="float: right; margin: 0 0 1em 1em;" title="210023-Ramses-II-at-the-Nubian-Museum-1.jpg, May 2013" /><strong><em>Reliability: Be credible!</em></strong><br /> <br />Having a large family tree going back to Ramesses II is not appropriate as you can't prove you're related to this Egyptian pharaoh!<br /> <br />Best is to gather all the documents you can find and to build a comprehensive family tree.<br /> <br /> <strong><em>Answer other members' questions!</em></strong><br /> <br />When publishing your family tree on GeneaNet, you will be visible to other genealogists and you will receive messages from them.<br /> <br />Take time to answer messages and to share with other genealogists!<br /> <br /> <strong>Simple and logical!</strong><br /> <br />GeneaNet is working hard to offer powerful tools to genealogists.
