Do you have what it takes to be the highest ranking genealogist in a growing genealogy services company? Get your resume ready as FamilyLink.com may be the right fit for you.
Today company CEO, Paul Allen, tweeted (posted on Twitter) that he is beginning the definition phase of a new Chief Genealogy Officer (CGO) position. One of the main responsibilities of this new position will be to “help manage GenSeek–[a] directory of all the world’s genealogy sources.”
Yesterday Mr. Allen confirmed the speculation that GenSeek is the realization of the partnership between FamilyLink.com and FamilySearch to update the Family History Library catalog with Web 2.0 features. These features include community contributed catalog entries and digitized sources. The release is planned for the next 2 months or so and I would expect to see a job posting before then.
The fact that FamilyLink.com is creating this position must mean that it expects GenSeek to be a big part of its service offering and a key element to the company’s success.
