Updates on Cloud Genealogy: The Future is Already Here
by Gary Hoffman

This month's genealogy weather report: cloudy with a good chance of preservation and collaboration. Bring your netbook or tablet and see if you can still access your pedigree.

Gary Hoffman has been involved with genealogy since he was a teenager raising pedigreed hogs in Northern California. Following a career in the U.S. Air Force, Gary worked in several high tech companies before coming to San Diego. He helped develop the concepts of the genweb and gendex in the 1990s and most recently has been promoting the idea of cloud genealogy. 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 past president of CGSSD and is our current webmaster.

We meet at the Robinson Auditorium complex on the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) campus in La Jolla. From North Torrey Pines Road, turn at Pangea Drive into UCSD. Free parking is available in the parking garage on the left; use any space other than those specifically reserved for UCSD vehicles. Signs will mark directions to our meeting room. Please refer to our website; or the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies website (click here) for driving directions and a map.
