I hope this finds many Nibargers (all spellings).We descend from Christian Sen. -> John -> William T. -> Gideon William -> James Harvey -> John Alonzo -> Leon John to myself, John Alonzo Nibarger II.
I am in the beginnings of a large "Family Collaboration" genealogy project.I have just finished setting up an online Genealogy software, kind of like genealogy.com or familytreemaker.com.It provides genealogy software functionality, but to multiple users, supports GEDCOM import/export, photos, histories, sources, cemeteries, headstones, etc.I host this at www.nibarger.com.I also registered neiberger.com, neibarger.us, neighbarger.com, neighberger.com, neyberger.com, neiburger.com (all spellings I have found in various sources) and they all forward to www.nibarger.com.
My hope is that the Nibargers (all spellings related) and those family names related through marriage and adoption, may use this as a collaboration tool.The problem I see in genealogy for families is that so many disparate people are trying to find the exact same information, duplicating efforts.This way, anything I find benefits everyone else and vice versa allowing for more discovery, momentum and teamwork.Rather than everyone doing their own work, then posting it on websites or forums, this puts the actual genealogy software, database and use right on the web!I am really excited to see where this may lead the family search effort.I have setup a Forum/Bulletin Board and website that allows everyone to automatically submit news, work on genealogy, search, etc. regarding genealogy or family reunions (or other things too).
Oh, and I am not, and will not, charge anything for the use of this site.I host it on a private server that I maintain at a secure data center and am doing this strictly as part of my quest to do genealogy as effectively as possible and help as many family members as possible.
I would love to get your feedback and even collaborate on developing this family site with you and others.Please feel free to contact me or my wife.Any ideas are greatly appreciated.I am just beginning this journey.
Thanks, John & Angel Nibarger North Richland Hills, TX
