George delivers this week's significant news items, and the Guys follow with listener e-mail items, including a definition of the cemetery inscription, "DoP."

This is followed by a discussion of three newer "social networking" sites for genealogists: Geni (http://www.geni.com); Famillion (http://www.famillion.com/); and MyHeritage (http://www.myheritage.com/).

The Guys discuss the new Family Tree Maker 2008. They then talk about concerns over the Internet Biographical Collection made available at Ancestry.com and some issues associated with caching of Web sites by both Web search engines and corporations offering aggregated collections of Web sites for topical use. (Note that Ancestry.com has since withdrawn the collection in question.)
