Saturday Shopping Around - Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness is back?

Editor's note: Today's posted by Sandra Gardner-Benward- information through Family Tree Magazine

Do you remember in past years there was a place on the web to go called

                                                                  "Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness" (RAK)

It was a great website to get help and to give help to other Family Researcher. It was created by Bridgett and Doc Schneider in 1999. It was created to bring together members of the genealogy community from all around the world. Unfortunately in 2011, the website went offline.  However, in tribute to Doc and Bridgett and the efforts of thousands of volunteers, Family Tree Magazine, a partner, was inspired to create a place for researchers to come together and collaborate.

It is an exciting time.  is launching "Genealogy Karma" which is modeled after Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness. If you are looking for records or photos from an ancestor who lived far away, they will connect you with volunteers who can do this researcxh for you in other cities. Likewise, if  you would like to give back and have a little time to donate, you can sign up as a volunteer.

When you get to the website it greets you with:

           Welcome to Genealogy Karma

We built Genealogy Karma to empower the Mocavo community and connect researchers around the country. Modeled after Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness, we hope to give something back to our community. Please volunteer or request help from someone for projects like taking a photo of a headstone, or finding a document in a local library. Thank you!
