Irish genealogy company Eneclann has become a founding member of the Family History Information Standards Organisation (FHISO). The latter is a standards-developing organisation that aims to bring the international family history and genealogical community together in a transparent, self-governing forum for the purpose of developing information standards to solve today’s interoperability issues.
Making the announcement, Brian Donovan, Eneclann’s CEO, said: 'Digitising, indexing and publishing family history records online is fraught with problems. Genealogy needs FHISO to help navigate a collaborative solution to shared problems, and to set meaningful standards, and we in Eneclann are delighted to be partners in this.'
The company will participate with other FHISO members from the global genealogical community in the development of standards for the digital representation and sharing of family history and genealogical information.
