familysearch REST api


Post by jabapyth-p40 »

I think it would be really neat if had a REST api, so third-party developers could get at all the data that is available there. This could be used for cool visualization mashups, as well as other things.

FamilyInsight uses the FamilySearch API to sync both ways with new FamilySearch Data and PAF.
