Genealogy Today Freshens Look to Keep Pace with Growth

This weekend Genealogy Today ( re-published all of its content with a new easy-to-use interface designed to simplify access to the growing collection of information. Improvements include a new navigation bar and enhanced search tools.

"Over the past few years the amount of content we've been adding to the site is incredible," explained Illya D'Addezio, owner of Genealogy Today. "These changes reflect our response to the feedback we've received lately. Our goal was to the improve user's experience when they visit the site."

The new design was created to help the user discover the helpful information hosted at Genealogy Today. The new organization breaks the site into six primary sections: News, My Family, Help Center, Contribute, People and Search. There is an additional section called Hot Topics, which filters content for the most popular topics in genealogy.

The primary search tool, the Online Genealogy Index, has been expanded to include even more resources. For example, a database of newspaper web sites from around the globe is now linked into the meta-search by location. Also, all of the datafiles from D', Illya's personal site, are now linked into the OGI engine.

"With a site containing over 1,800 pages (in addition to the dozens of dynamic databases), organization becomes more of a challenge," added Illya. "We received very positive feedback from the individuals who got a sneak peak at the new site."

About has been serving a growing audience of genealogy enthusiasts since 1999 and earning accolades along the way. The site features original articles from several experienced genealogists and writers, along with unique databases and search tools.
