My new Ward in Provo, Utah has a website where the members can relate short stories about their personal experiences illustrating how The Book of Mormon has affected their lives. Stories like these are really the vital essence of genealogy; the meaning behind the names and dates. These are the same types of stories that should be going onto the FamilySearch.org website.
The name of the website is Nearer to God. It is a relatively simply designed website but could be used by families or other Church organizations as a model of the type of website that could be done effectively for a variety of purposes. Since I see things through genealogical eyes, I see the value of these stories to the families of those who are contributing them.
I recommend that you take a look and see what is going on in areas closely related to genealogy.
