May Update

We received three generous donations to the RootsMapper project this month and we just wanted to say thank you to all who have contributed to this project so far. Every donation goes a long way in making sure the site stays up and running and receives updates. Every donor is listed on our Donor Wall of Fame.

We have a significant update on its way, so for those of you with beta access please give it a try and let us know what you think!

Among other things, here are some features to look forward to:
-Static URLs for browser bookmarking
-Export to KML
-Pedigree view
