RadixForum turns 5, Csaladtortenet mailing list turns 6

permanent link

This blog not dead. Just quiet. June has been a busy month for me and the effect of this is on RadixLog is not very pleasant. I could not release all the news sitting in the buffer. Looks like I have to delay all of these to July.

Two of the services I host are going to have their birthdays tomorrow.

The elder one is the Csaladtortenet mailing list. (Családtörténet is family history in Hungarian.) The list has become a gathering place for those Hungarian speakers who have been bitten by the genealogy bug. The number of messages on the list has just passed 20,000 in May 2008, with a current membership of some 370-380 listers. Most of us on the list are from modern Hungary with friends in the neighboring countries of former Hungary and also with pals in Germany or overseas. Reading the correspondence is a rewarding one for me, several times over the years I even quoted emails from there here on RadixLog, as the news often appeared first on Csaladtortenet.

RadixForum went online on July 1, 2003. On its 5th birthday RadixForum boasts more than 65,000 messages and registered users in the thousands. Notwithstanding the web 2.0 genealogy social networking sites, good ole RadixForum still attracts people trying to find their past families and living cousins. And apparently, several of them have success! Some cousins appear in only a couple of weeks after the messages have been posted - some read and respond to messages 3 or 4 years later. I do hope we will learn about even more family reunions in the coming years.
