Genealogy Wise - new genealogy social networking site

There is a new site on the Internet called Genealogy Wise. It is supposed to be like Facebook or MySpace but geared toward genealogists. I joined yesterday but have not done a lot with it yet. From what I have seen, I am pretty impressed. There are a lot of add-on applications that are present and working. I used one to add my Twitter updates to my page...and it worked perfectly the first try!

It is hard to say if the site is just a passing trend or something that will be around for awhile. Hundreds of people have joined but we will have to see how many stay active. If you want to try it out, you can check out my page here: Kevin's Genealogy Wise Page. I have not done much to spruce it up but you can become my friend on there if you like. I am not sure but I think World Vital Records might have something to do with the project.
