      Mocavo Announces Genealogy Karma

      What may become a major genealogy site has been announced. Genealogy Karma
      hopes to replace an earlier web site that has been missed by thousands. Many
      of us used Bridgett and Doc Schneider's Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness
      (RAOGK) web site. The site went offline in 2011. Sadly, Bridgett passed away
      a short time later. Several people have tried to create replacements for
      RAOGK but none of the new sites have achieved the popularity of the original

      Now a commercial company has created a new web site with similar aims and
      Has dedicated the site to the memory of Bridgett Schneider. The new site
      runs on custom-written software that adds features not available on the
      original RAOGK web site. Best of all, the new site will remain available to
      all free of charge.

      I invite you to check out Genealogy Karma at www.mocavo.com/karma

      The following was written by Mocavo.com:
      Back in 1999, a fantastic resource was established to bring together members
      of the genealogy community all around the world. The brainchild of Bridgett
      and Doc Schneider, Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK) was created
      to help genealogists collaborate with the genealogy community to document
      their research, while also offering genealogists a way to give back to a
      community that had helped them in the past. RAOGK quickly turned into a
      global organization. The group's volunteers were able to help thousands of
      genealogists make progress in their family history research.

      The ROAGK website went offline in 2011 because of a computer disaster. Sadly
      Bridgett Schneider passed away later that year, and the website was never
      able to come back online. In tribute to Bridgett and Doc Schneider and all
      of the participants in RAOGK, many volunteers have created programs similar
      to ROAGK to help bring together the expertise of the genealogy community.
      Doc and Bridgett's legacy and the efforts of thousands of volunteers
      inspired us to create a place for researchers to come together and
      collaborate to help other members of the genealogical community.

      Today, at Mocavo, we are excited to announce the launch of Genealogy Karma.
      Modeled after Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness, we hope to empower the
      Mocavo community and connect researchers all around the country. If you're
      looking for documents, records, or photos from an ancestor who lived far
      away, we will connect you with family history volunteers who can do this
      research for you in other cities. Likewise, if you'd like to give back to
      the Mocavo community and have a little time to donate, you can sign up as a
      volunteer.
