What's New? > new county website connections

I've mentioned before that there are a few county websites that extract and display information from Our Family Tree.  Example:  http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~injacktp/people.htm

I have now implemented a connection going the other way.  For any county that has a page like this, and any person on this site that is in that county, it will automatically have a link back to the county site.  Example:  http://www.gurganus.org/ourfamily/browse.cfm/George-Smallwood/f19319

Click any of the locations that read "IN, Jackson Co", and you'll get a little popup menu that includes the link back to the county site.  For any future county pages that might be added with this feature, this new connection will automatically be added.

I'm hoping this will inspire more county site administrators to put this in.

Let me know if you have any questions! Read more
