What do you need to view an RSS Feed
Viewing the BIN Feed is very simple. You will need a reader and yes most or all of them are FREE! The BIN recommends using Google Reader, Mozilla Firefox, MY Yahoo, and FEED Demon. We have tried all of the above and believe these are the best on the Internet.
How does RSS Feeds work
After you download or find a reader, come back to the BIN and look for this RSS logo or something similiar to it.
You can click on it or right click on it to retrieve the address of the feed. Simply put the RSS address into your reader and that's it! You now will receive updates for the BIN without having to visit the site. Example: Let say you visit ten genealogy sites a week and enjoy reading the content of those sites. Instead of visiting each of the sites individually, simply subscribe to their RSS feed and check your reader to see if the site has posted updates or added new material. Now of course, we encourage everyone to visit the BIN often to research our extensive databases of surnames. If you have any questions regarding the RSS feed, please contact us directly!
