Family History Application

Genealogy from [0000001.ged] – – New Family History Applet Over the years I have received a couple of inquires both by email and postal about the family history I have posted on line. Surprisingly I have found relatives (distant) from as near as Virginia to as far away as Australia.
My next step has been ruminating for years. What about making individual records search engine searchable. My thought would be that a database that drives individual queries could provide the basic information as well as provide users a means of indicating their interest or additional information.
I think I have found it. A project I was working on today takes a common GEDCOM file as produced in a number of programs (including Personal Ancestry File) and parse it out into a web application.
I’d be interested to see how usable this is for the common person. Let me know what you think.
