Sharing Family History
« on: Friday 09 February 18 10:19 GMT (UK) »
I'm trying to think of the best way to display my family history to share with other members of my family in an easy to read format something like a blog maybe.
A few questions to those that have done this.
Can I show census and birth indexes  records on a blog or are they copyrighted?
Is a blog the best way to go or are there better methods out there on the net.
Most family members won't want to read through sources so want the most lay man method available.
Any help or ideas welcome thanks

Hi Davey

There is a bit of free s/w which converts some basic GED detail to web-html.

Name/birth/death/marriage and relationships(sideways)

Basic but free = google GED2HTML

If you look at their site and see eamples but then still want to see a real one in action then
PM me.

OR

Use Gedxlate to convert the ged file to spreadsheet/csv or WORD/txt
