It's great for genealogists and I've been playing around in it for a few weeks now. When I first tried this site out there was a problem with date choices in the drop down menu which didn't start early enough. I knew the site was new and so minor glitches were to be expected. I sent an email about the date issues, received an immediate response and the problem was corrected very quickly.
A week or so later I encountered another glitch with the Google map search. Again I reported it and by next morning it was fixed by the site developer. And I was informed by email that it was now working properly. Immediate response and fast action to overcome glitches - it doesn't get any better!
Some ideas for genealogists based on my experiences with Uencounter.me:
* Mark an ancestor's residence in various years
* Drop pins for events such as a birth, death or marriage of an ancestor.
* Track an ancestor's migration pattern by dropping pins along his or her route.
I'm sure readers will come up with many more ways to use this site.
When you first log in there are various choices represented by circular icons on the top right: Build your map; Say thanks; Find Someone. I've only used Build your map so far and it's easy.

I like this site and plan on spending more time here and dropping many more pins.
