  1. Hi James,

    I didn't directly find a "contact me" buttons, so I'll reply to this article.

    a quick mail to inform you of the release of the family tree software MyBlood 1.2
    You already posted info about MyBlood i the past, but MyBlood has come a log way since than...

    MyBlood ( ) is a cross-platform family tree application which is visually rich and easy to learn.
    Although we are relatively new, we implemented Google Maps, image tagging and connectivity to Picasa... with extra features to come.

    We are always interested in further discussions about MyBlood, providing additional information for an article or doing a review.
    You can find the press release of this release at

    Best regards,
