Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter mentions that Danes are going to be returning (optionally of course) to patronymic names. This goes back to the Viking tradition of naming a child after the father’s first name (mother’s now!) and adding “son” or “datter” (daughter) to it.
A response to the article Jamis Buck posted about the state of Mac genealogy software. Unfortunately their server appears to be down right now, but you can find it in Google’s cache. This isn’t a rebuttal or a counter-point so much as it’s a response (I both agree with and disagree with some of what they said).
A good example of what family history sites can be, the Wheeler Family History goes beyond simply stating a bunch of dates and events.
