MUSIC and GAMES: Computer Music and History of Video Games
The answer to generating popular genealogy and family history interest
by teenagers, youth and active adults, appears in the creation of interesting
computer games -- technology that can be used by individuals, as well as for
group interaction in shopping mall arcades, or other religious and educational
meeting locations. Participation will occur, by the adoption of genealogy and
family history learning tools that conform actual research methodology with
popular culture: the instant personal gratification obtained in game action
time frame transitions. Individuals or groups thus achieve positive goal
orientations, through interactive associations with the great lives of men
and women, adults and children, in past and present history; or, in the
projected future lives of civilizations yet born and unknown. From
Civilization, to computer game Civilization, to the restoration
and re-creation of valid Ancient & Modern Genealogies.
The benefit of this open interaction with other people,
is the restoration of bonding between common
ancestors and other researchers in -- real life;
experiencing in Virtual Reality /Second Life®,

This API has been tested against tens of millions of social images.
Analyzes billions of images and videos daily. It requires no machine
learning expertise before using it. Software will be used in the future,
to help “narrow the field” of genealogical matching of facts, along with other
physical, video, and geographical data sources, such as pictures and localities.
Professional genealogists, family generational historians, and family newbie's
beginning researchers, will be able to intelligently review and consider key “options”,
by using their own personal judgment, with varying degrees of statistical confidence,
to find unknown additional options, beyond DNA analysis, to explore opening present
"brick walls" and "dead ends"; rather than simply giving up, by relying on the current
computer genealogy program sets of findings, results, or uncertain family traditions.
