Whats different about GenSmarts?

Most genealogy software is focused on helping you document what you know about your family. Unfortunately, that's just the tip of the iceberg... there's so much more that you don't know, of course. Aside from search engines and a couple of sites that help you find links between your family and others... there's not much out there that helps you do the legwork.

GenSmarts uses a kind of artificial intelligence that we call "smart objects" - that's where we take the name GenSmarts from. By bringing some virtual life into your existing family history knowledge, and letting it interact with the "smart objects" we created to represent the various historical records and research locations... we create the magic that we call GenSmarts.

Context is worth 100 IQ points - that's the big idea with GenSmarts. There are lots of places where you can read about the types of things you need to do to research your family. Lots of other places you can go to find out where different types of records are available for your searching. But there's nothing that puts this in the context of YOUR ancestors - until now. GenSmarts - learning by example is so much more effective (and fun).
