News from FHISO, the open-standards gang.
“If we are to become better genealogists, then we need a better storage format.” So writes FHISO organizer and BetterGEDCOM wiki member, A.C. “Tony” Proctor in his latest article. His work, “Building a BetterGEDCOM: Building a Better World,” appears in the current (April 2012) issue of Your Family History.
Tony’s article introduces FHISO and touches on many BetterGEDCOM discussion topics, including the need for the new format to be “”flexible and accommodating ” toward the definition of the family unit. By golly, he managed to highlight both “E&C” and Elizabeth Shown Mills in the same article!
Great job, Tony.
One community, one standard.
FHISO is a standards-setting organization. It is working to bring together the family history and genealogical community for the purpose of developing collaborative, open standards.
