Web 2.0 for Genealogists Jordan Jones GenealogyMedia.com jordan@genealogymedia.com NC Genealogical Society Speakers Forum / 12 Apr 2008
What is Web 2.0? One must start with a consideration of Web 1.0 …
Web 1.0 “Web 1.0” describes the web from 1993 to 2003 It consisted of simple one-way or two-way sharing of information Because posting and sharing was limited, Web 1.0 did not encourage collective volunteer efforts to build the sites 3 © 2008 GenealogyMedia.com
Web 2.0 – Key Concepts 1 Social Networking – The creation of user-defined online communities (MySpace, Facebook) 	Network information as broadly or as narrowly as you would like 	Control what you want to share and with whom 4 © 2008 GenealogyMedia.com
Web 2.0 – Key Concepts 2 Folksonomies – Collaborative tagging, classification, and indexing. (Flickr, LibraryThing) 	Folksonomies are taxonomies (classification systems) designed by the people Syndication – Aggregation and notification of changes RSS or Atom feeds  5 © 2008 GenealogyMedia.com
Web 2.0 – Key Concepts 3 Mash-ups – Merging content from more than one source or website (for example: images on GoogleMaps) Weblogs (or Blogs) – Simple, yet powerful publishing tools Wikis or Forums – Content developed and shared by the users (Wikipedia) 6 © 2008 GenealogyMedia.com
How Can Genealogists Use Web 2.0? The tools are there; we can determine how we use them
As Genealogists, Why Should We Care? Archive, organize, and retain your documents, information, and images Share your interests, research, and documents with others, as you choose Contribute to knowledge and dissemination of genealogical information Make and retain genealogical contacts
Examples of Web 2.0 Sites for Genealogists Wikipedia, Flickr, and more
Wikis Wikis are named after the Hawaiian Pidgin work that means “quick”; their goal is to provide quick, easy, scalable, and version-managed collaborative authoring portals Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/ is the most complete encyclopedia available, with more than 2.3 million articles 10 © 2008 GenealogyMedia.com
Simple Uses of Wikipedia for All Genealogists, 1 Wikipedia is an excellent source of Accurate and complete information and links to other sources On average, more accurate and complete than standard encyclopedias, but with a wider range of variation. Public access maps and images, with clear Creative Commons copyright notices 11 © 2008 GenealogyMedia.com
Simple Uses of Wikipedia for All Genealogists, 2 Caveat Emptor. As with any source Critically evaluate the source and its producer for bias and relevance Trust only sourced materials; use others for ideas, but not to establish facts 12 © 2008 GenealogyMedia.com
Collaboration in Wikipedia Correct or complete articles about people, places, and events about which you have become an expert Share images, documents, or documentation with an audience of over 600 million annual visitors 13 © 2008 GenealogyMedia.com
