Updates on Cloud Genealogy: The Future is Already Here
by Gary Hoffman
Gary Hoffman has been involved with genealogy for over 40 years and with the Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego for over 20 years. Gary helped develop the concepts of the USGenWeb and Gendex in the 1990s and most recently has been promoting the idea of cloud genealogy, where your data is stored not in your computer but in a cloud service.
Following a career in the U.S. Air Force, Gary worked in several high tech companies before coming to San Diego. He currently works at University of California San Diego as the Chief Technology Officer for the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies. He is a past president of CGSSD and is our current webmaster.
