an irc help channel for
genealogy web page writers
Former newsman and politician, Thom Foulks is now retired...but still writing. In recent years, he worked for ZDNet and was the lead instructor for ZDNet University's first Web-based online courses. His "HotDogging the Web" HTML course is still used as a sampler by ZDU, to demonstrate the power of online instruction. Thom's articles on computer topics are now seen most frequently as cover stories in Colorado's Peak Computing magazine.
He is one of the regulars who gather weekly at the IIGS #htmlhelp channel to discuss HTML and Web design topics as they apply to genealogy sites. He has prepared a pointer page of various online genealogical resources that you may find useful when you begin planting your tree on the Web.
Thom's own site, The Foulks Family Tree, combines an indexed "name lookup" list of his various family branches with fact-filled narratives about his family and their roles in history. Of his site, Thom says: "It's just one example of many different ways to share genealogical information with your family and friends."
You can chat with Thom and the other #htmlhelp regulars weekly. The full schedule of such sessions, displayed for your international time zone, is at IIGS Theme Schedule.
