Roots Television: Steve Morse interview

It's hard to remember what genealogy was like before Steve Morse became involved. He's been working with technology for a long time - having invented the 8086 processor, which he calls the ancestor of all processors used in our computers today.

Frequent attendees at the IAJGS International Conferences of Jewish Genealogy have packed Steve's presentations on many topics. His good humor and general helpfulness have always impressed me.

He became a household name with his creation of a utility for accessing the Ellis Island Database after he experienced great frustration with the provided search engine. Without his One-Step pages, many of us would never have found our relatives in that database. And the rest is history.

Dick Eastman recorded an 11-minute interview with Steve at the recent FGS conference, and Roots Television recorded it. He talks about his One-Step pages, future plans and background. Click here to see it.
