- Findagrave.com has a new Edit Tab on the contributor page. And as one would expect, Findagrave tells what it's for & how to use it in their FAQ's.
- For those researching their ancestors across the pond, Family Deeds has added new deeds to their collection. Family Deeds is a privately funded project wherein they buy family deeds and other old documents in the UK, transcribe them, index them, provide the indexed information [all names on documents and locations], offer the transcription for a small fee, and also sell the documents to fund purchasing more old deeds and documents. [Very nice service as I personally have a -- sometimes -- expensive habit of rescuing family ephemera in local antique stores and researching it and returning it if possible. It adds up, I tell ya'. Plus, the older it is and I tend to rescue older "stuff", the more descendants there are who might possibly want it. Providing full transcriptions for a small fee is smart. Hmmm. And another hmmm.]
