The Path to Genlighten

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

It’s been exactly one year today since we registered the domain name www.genlighten.com. At that point, the choice was a rushed attempt to find a name that seemed halfway meaningful, had some personality, and was available as a domain. Unfortunately, we forgot the part about “rolls off the tongue easily”…

The site’s now far enough along and we’ve connected with enough potential users that’s it’s way past time to open a dialog with the online genealogy community — thus the rationale for the launch of this blog. We’re thrilled for the chance to hear from you regarding your hopes for Genlighten and how you’d like it to evolve. And we hope to engage a wider audience by relating our own experiences with family history research, its joys and frustrations. For now, though, thanks for making it all worthwhile by taking an interest in our modest venture.
