    I’ve been attempting to add links from ArchivesWiki to WikiTree and FamilySearch, as the two biggest “unified family tree” sites. I prefer the former, as it’s at least somewhat an open community-driven site (although it’s actually privately owned and not open-source), but it seems good to have as many links between datasets as possible. My main idea is to try to notify other researchers of the information that I’m putting online; that’s had reasonable success so far, but I’d like to try to do more of it.

    The auDA is changing the rules about who’s allowed to have a .org.au domain name, and forcing everyone to register an association if they want to keep their domain. I’ve had archives.org.au for over a decade, and have used it for my email address for lots of that time. So I must admit to being a bit annoyed! If it wasn’t for the fact that I have one of these domain names, I’d probably be pretty supportive of the move — I like the idea that domain names are for different purposes (for example, I love the fact that Australians can have personal .id.au domain names).

    So, I’m going to register something called “ArchivesWiki Inc.” and see if I can keep the name!
