Geni Tree

I heard the other day that Geni is trying to build a family tree for the entire world. It never made sense to me why this doesn't already exist, so I tried adding my family tree on to it.

Without going very far I got to the end of my memory, going back farther would actually take research. Maybe someday I will look into the matter more, but now there are another 48 people in their system. It is just a matter of time before someone else on the list expands it further. At the rate the World Family Tree is growing, mine should merge in the next two or three years.

Unfortunately the site is rather annoying. They try really hard to sell me services which I don't really have any interest in. I suppose that is the cost of keeping such an idea alive though.

More Editing of Gopro Hero 4 Black Photos

I manually adjusted the tint for several pictures from last trip to Laguna Beach. It isn't as effective for shallow, low visibility, pictures as for deeper high visibility pictures but this really does improve most images with a large amount of ocean in the background:

More Laguna Pictures

I went diving again. The visibility was about ten feet less than the last trip and the surge was an issue. However at the same time, the Gopro is starting to make more sense to me. While the best pictures from last trip were better, the average picture from this trip was much better. I also was able to get more iNaturalist submissions out of this trip than last. .

 I didn't see the abalone until after I got home and was going through the pictures
