The “Family Historian”
After an informal family reunion in Macon, GA, I got a reputation as the “family historian”. My cousins wanted to know what I knew, and I needed a way to share my research.
I didn’t want to recreate Ancestry.com, just share some snippets of the tree, maybe a few family group sheets.
Since I knew WordPress was an easy way to create a blog site, I built a plugin for it – Rootspersona.
Genealogy on WordPress just got Simple
Upload a GEDCOM file, and Rootspersona will generate a page for each person, as well as an index.
Each page includes:
- A 3 generation snippet of your Family Tree
- A small bio panel summarizing basic facts
- A family group sheet for that person’s family of origin
- A family group sheet for that person’s marriages, including the children of the marriage
- A panel displaying a standard descendency chart
