Well now! Here’s another example of how much penetration genealogy is getting. As I was uploading a document to Scribd.com, I saw that they have now added a designation under their Research category for genealogy! That was not there a few weeks ago when I last uploaded a document and needless to say I am quite pleased to see it there. I was getting tired of having to use History as the category of choice. Of course it would help if they spelled genealogy correctly, but it’s a start right?? :-)
To explore all documents assigned to the Genealogy category – visit their browsing interface. The browse page also suggests that this category is new as there are only 2 pages of documents so far; other categories such as History have over 200 pages to browse. Check it out. Upload your documents. Help their Genealogy collection grow!
P.S. — What was I uploading? An index to a 1960s book of gravestone records for the Duplin County, NCGenWeb project. I’m helping the new county coordinator rebuild the site and thought this would be of help for county researchers.
