Genoom genealogy

Genoom is a genealogy network based on the Facebook model that allows you to create a family tree and a private network. It allows you to invite family members to add to your growing tree with information such as names, dates, stories etc. Other features include the ability to use discussion forums, calendars, private messaging etc to keep in contact with family members.

I like the clear, crisp interface of this website and would recommend it to anyone who wants to make their family history work accessible to others in their family.

Go check it out if you haven't seen it and tell me what you think. Do you think anything needs changing?

It's the day of Independence for Pakistan that we remember on 14th August every year but this year we will be remembering all those that have lost their lives in terrorist attacks, the plane crash, and those who perished in the floods.

Yes, we are grateful that Pakistan was made on this day. But let's also be grateful that we live, we breathe and are able to live comfortably.

Remember those who have no homes to feel safe in. Those who won't be fasting but will be feeling the hunger. Those who will be fighting for their lives.
