Thank you for your patience as we have slowly prepared to begin our technical work. The Family History Information Standards Organisation (FHISO, http://fhiso.org/) and The Technical Standing Committee is pleased to announce that we are now ready to begin that technical process! We invite you to participate in any or all of the following ways:

 1. Subscribe to the low-volume tsc-announce mailing list. That's where we'll send notices of new technical projects and other important announcements and updates. Visit http://fhiso.org/mailman/listinfo/tsc-announce_fhiso.org to subscribe.

 2. Participate in open discussions on the tsc-public mailing list; visit http://fhiso.org/mailman/listinfo/tsc-public_fhiso.org to subscribe. 

3. Join an exploratory group, or propose your own; see http://fhiso.org/tsc-egs/ for more.

 4. The Call for Papers is still active; see http://fhiso.org/call-for-papers/ for more.

 You can also learn more about the technical work of FHISO through the Technical Standing Committee's web portal http://fhiso.org/tsc/
