The Unclaimed Persons project, which helps find next of kin for the deceased, has move to a new home at http://www.unclaimed-persons.org/forums. Even if you were a member of the group on Facebook, you will need to register at the new site.
The new site, which is structured like a message board, went live yesterday and it appears all of the active and pending cases have been transferred from Facebook. Just taking a quick look at the new site shows me that it is going to be much easier to work with and manage. Cases are contained in separate boards: open cases, pending cases, and close cases. And it looks like cases can easily be moved to a different board when the status of the case changes.
I’m excited for the new site and hope I can help out again in the future. Unfortunately, right now, there are just not enough hours in the day. I do, however, applaud all of the volunteers and the hard work they do; it’s such a worthy cause.
