- Google Earth has new imagery uploaded. And? I already mentioned about Google Earth's new Tour Builder yesterday, but I think Terrence O'Brien on the Engadget blog does a better job of explaining it. Once you read his article, it should be really evident of how we, as family historians, can use this tool to tell our family stories.
- Bill from the West in New England blog teaches us a good lesson in The Shaking Leaf and the Missing File. Basically, we need to stay on our research/technology toes. [Plus his post title rocks.]
- Speaking of staying on our research/technology toes, Deb Ruth paints an excellent illustration for us of how to put tech tools to work to help us stay connected to solve our research conundrums.
- And speaking of tech tools, on her blog Ancestoring, Michele Simmons Lewis, shows us why Findagrave is such an essential tool in our research toolboxes.
- It might be time to move to Albuquerque, y'all. Robert Baca tells us the Albuquerque Genealogy Center now has access to Newspaper Archive if we have an Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Library Card. But? Before we pack our bags & head to New Mexico, we should probably check to see if our own libraries or genealogical societies that we already belong to have it. Or just got it. Or offer it and we just need to join. [Besides, typing Albuquerque is cumbersome. ;) ]
- And USGenWeb volunteer contributors uploaded 274 files for various counties in the following U.S. states: Florida, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia. Perhaps they uploaded something you've been needing to solve your family history mystery?
Okay. So, you've heard of and use the USGenWeb Project for family history sleuthing. But? Are you using the WorldGenWeb Project when your family history research [Read: Obsession.] takes you beyond the U.S. borders? It's like USGenWeb, but, you know, for the rest of the world.
