I’m sure that many of you are familiar with Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK), created by Bridgett and Doc Schneider. For 12 years it provided a resource to help genealogists to document their ancestors while also providing a way for genealogist to help the genealogical community. I suspect that all of us have benefited from the “kindness” and “hard work” of strangers in our quest to learn more about our family.
To try and fill the void that was created with the demise of RAOGK in 2011, Mocavo has launched Genealogy Karma. Read more about the launch here and do visit the website.
