Dan Lawyer (Product Manager in the Family History Department of the LDS Church) has created a new website and tool for us to play with - http://familysearchlabs.org

About a week or so ago he posted an image of his pedigree in a smart pedigree viewer they have been working on. (I'm not really sure who the they are - might be the FamilySearch team.) Many people expressed an interest in playing with the viewer using their own data and he thought others might be interested. Dan says: "We've just made a new website available (FamilySearch Labs) to showcase interesting new technology we're working on. The first project on the site is our smart pedigree viewer. It allows you to upload your own GEDCOM and view it or view one of our sample files. Go check it out at http://www.familysearchlabs.org/ and be sure to use the feedback link on the site to tell us what you think."

You can send your feedback to feedback@familysearchlabs.org.

They also have a blog at http://familysearchlabs.blogspot.com

I played with it and it's a neat way to view your full pedigree chart. The only problem I found was that I couldn't scroll to the end of the lines. Maybe I'm missing some button here. I could only see the end of the lines of the pedigree if I scrolled in but then the name were so small I couldn't read them. They said it was a work in progress so it will be exciting to watch its development.

See ya tomorrow, for tomorrow is always another genealogy day!
