- 49 states. 21 countries. 200+ classes, events, & interactive activities. THE PIONEER WOMAN. 10,000+ attendees expected. Family Discovery Conference. Rootstech 2014. Will I see you there next week? [THE PIONEER WOMAN! I just made her Pot Pie last night. And her Pork Roast with Apples and Onions is a favorite in my house. Made it last week. Again. Yum. Family stories, genealogy, technology, and food. I'm there. Coffee in hand.]
- Speaking of FamilySearch.org, record indexes and record images were added to their online collection yesterday for China (Collection of Genealogies); Colombia (Valle del Cauca); Germany (Bavaria); Ghana (Accra); Italy (Campbasso & Napoli); Netherlands (Zeeland); Portugal (Beja); and for the US: District of Columbia; Minnesota; New England; New Hampshire; New York; Ohio; Texas; West Virginia; and the 1860 US Census.
- On Google+ yesterday, Tamura Jones announced WieWasWie, an online family tree collaboration site, is now available in English. For more information about it visit Tamura Jones' previous post on it, WieWasWie Beta.
- On AnceStories, Miriam gives a great tip about using Delpher, a digitized online library from the Netherlands.
- On The Ancestor Hunt, Kenneth announced Elephind has updated their list of newspaper titles. Have they added something you've been needing?
- In conjunction with The British Library, Findmypast UK has added 2.5 million of The British Library's India Office Records chronicling the lives of early expats.
- Have Irish ancestors? On Irish Genealogy News, Claire gives some great news about the Valuation Office trying out a Cancelled Books viewer. It's only onsite viewing at present. [This is great progress, IMO, and I'd even be very excited about the email service that is mentioned as being a possibility sometime in the future.]
- For OneNote users: When on the go, use OneNote's Web App.
- For Evernote users: Evernote Sync is now 4 times faster than it was.
- On Genealogy Canada, Elizabeth announces the LAC will be digitizing 640,000 WWI service files.
- MyHeritage launched yesterday a new and handy feature to their online family tree service that allows users to add family tree profiles from historical records.
- And USGenWeb volunteer contributors uploaded 263 files for various counties in various US states. However, due to a technological hiccup, the only ones showing on their report for yesterday are for the US state of Florida. So expect the rest tomorrow. Or if you can't wait or haven't ever used USGenWeb, then head on over to USGenWeb and search via the state you are researching.
Other things that might interest you. Maybe. Maybe Not. But maybe.
