Received the following press release from the National GenealogicalÂ Society. Congrats to NGS for this impressive milestone!
Arlington, VA–12 February 2007. Just under a year since the first Member Ancestry Chart (MAC) became available to members on its website (http://www.ngsgenealogy.org ), the National Genealogical Society (NGS) today uploaded the millionth ancestral name from its MAC collection. All of the names are searchable, including separate entries for women’s maiden and married surnames.
After a decade of dedicated work by over 100 NGS volunteers, the entire MAC collection is being made available to members online, using a database designed by NGS member Linda Gouaze and an excellent online software application designed completely in-house by Gayathri Gopiram, NGS’ Information Technology Specialist. The MAC collection is joining the Family Bible Records collection and the National Intelligencer abstracts in the rapidly expanding Members-Only section of the NGS website, http://www.ngsgenealogy.org
