[Editor’s Note: we received the following press release from Logique this morning – this new genealogy software product looks interesting!]
We live in an age of technology and information. Yet genealogy is still behind the times. It can take months, even years, for a genealogist to track down a single person. Many of them long to learn their family’s story, but can’t go forward until they find out who that person is.
Lorne Redmond is all too familiar with this problem. He has been doing genealogy work for decades and estimates that even the names and information he has on hand today could take him up to ten years to catalogue. That’s an entire decade of work.
Lorne just doesn’t have that kind of time. With his programming background, he decided to come up with a different approach to the problem: Ged-I.
Ged-I (which stands for GEDCOM Interpreter) is an innovative genealogy software that automates the extraction of ancestral information from genealogical texts. It takes a process that currently takes months, even years, and condenses it into a matter of hours.
Nothing like this currently exists. Ged-I is the first of its kind.
Ged-I is still in the development phase. Logique LLC, the creators of Ged-I, is running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo starting October 23, 2015, to accelerate development and get the product out to the people who need it. You can find more info here: https://www.indiegogo.com/
And there are some great rewards available as well. As a backer, you can get access to the software before it is available to the general public, or become affiliated with the software. And, for a limited number of high-tier backers, you can even get help writing your own family story!
For as little as $5 you can help Ged-I become a standard part of genealogical research.
Ged-I: Where will your family’s story lead?
