Were you as sad as I was to see iGoogle get scrapped by Google last week? 

If you're like me you have converted Google into your genealogy homepage. You've stuffed it with your favorite blogs and podcasts, and your to do lists and bookmarks have kept you organized (if only we could say the same about the paper piling up on our desks!)
Dan, a podcast listener, wrote:"Having blog gadgets (including yours!) is so useful - what's the alternative?! Help!"Help is on the way
Help is on the way!
In Genealogy Gems Podcast episode #136 I will introduce you to a wonderful alternative, and help you make the conversion step by step.

And if you haven't been using iGoogle, why not use this new tech tool to create your own genealogy homepage?

One note: if you have trouble doing the conversion, don't sweat it. Grab a lemonade, turn up the podcast, and use your Ctl + C and Ctl + V to copy and paste your favorite genealogy feeds on your new homepage.

I've even created a step-by-step tutorial video to you get started:
