FamilySearch Certified

Since Gordan Clarke first mentioned it, I have been watching for more word on the FamilySearch Certified process. These are programs that are approved to sync with New FamilySearch. I just saw that the Generations Maps has received word of their certification. You can read more about it on Janet Hovorka's blog "The Chart Chick" on her recent article "Official Certification from New FamilySearch".

Products and programs that are FamilySearch Certified will have the FamilySearch Certified logos on them. My understanding is that there will be various levels of certification. Janet quotes Gordon Clarke as saying that will link to certified products in the next 30-60 days. And then New FamilySearch will be integrated into towards the end of the year.

That makes me happy in two ways. First, we will see which products are certified to work with new FamilySearch. Second, did you catch that - NFS will be integrated into towards the end of the year!

They must be on schedule to roll-out NFS to the world by the end of the year! YIPEE!! Maybe the rumors that NFS will roll-out to the Wasatch Front in September are true.

See ya tomorrow, for tomorrow is always another genealogy day!
