Another first for the NHL blog

I regularly post findings of historical interest from my usual paper, the FT. But I've never seen anything in 'Companies and Markets' which has been suitable for the blog before. That changed today. There are concerns about monopoly within the genealogical website sector. The idea of linking lots of the data together, on the other hand, seems a rather good idea. This is very much unknown territory for me, as despite the expectations of elderly relatives, I have no real knowledge of this at all. But family history is big business, and looks set to get bigger.
