I am not a professional genealogist.
I lived in Ohio until the age of 11. After a whirlwind tour of the planet, I arrived in Canada a few years later. After enrolling in university to become a doctor, I realized that I preferred dead people to living ones and inanimate objects to ones that move quickly. I changed my course of study to mathematics and computers.
JGEN was started in the Fall of 2006 as a curiosity. At first, it consisted of only simple charts. This section has been expanded to include stories, photos and obituaries.
Life is chaotic, death is not. It stops, it sits in graveyards and dusty archives and all we have to do is find it.
JLog was started through a series of unrelated minor incidents which together constitute a major accident.
“Simple computer technology for genealogists” was bestowed on it by Geoff Rasmussen of Legacy Family Tree who announced it to his tens of thousands of genealogy subscribers as a ‘technology blog’. I doubt I would have done that myself.
It’s a collection of simple computer tips, tools and how-to’s for genealogists. A great deal of the content will suit computer users of any ilk.
Webstream was started much later as a library of web design and marketing resources that appeared misplaced on JLog. If you have almost any kind of a blog, website or online presence, you may eventually find yourself wondering about these things.
FAQ is a new and expandable section answering frequently asked questions.
You may have arrived here looking for how to crack KeePass. Many people do. I hope you realize by now that you can’t. If you’re looking for a ‘cracked’ version, you don’t need one. It’s free.
There are over 650 pages of content here and I hope everyone finds something to inspire them.
