- Here is one good reason to join Reddit for your genealogy and family history research. Mashable.com shares a Reddit community that does free old photo Photoshop restoration.
- On Adventures in Genealogy Education, Angela shares Tom Jones' explanation of the differences between the old BCG Standards Manual and the soon-to-be released one. Also, yesterday I mentioned a link found on Facebook courtesy of Elizabeth Shown Mills for the reduced price of the yet-to-be-released new BCG Standards Manual. Some couldn't see it because it was not a Public FB Share/Update. So here's the direct link to where you can pre-order the new manual at a reduced price. [My apologies.]
- For genealogy professionals: the APG announced yesterday on their Facebook Page they will be offering some of the PMC presentations as a virtual conference for those who cannot make it to Salt Lake City in January 2014. [Which is excellent news.] However, the link they give there is to the listing and announcement that is behind the Membership Paywall. For those deciding if they should perhaps join the APG because it might be helpful to their genealogy professional career, Angela McGhie has provided a listing of what will be offered via their virtual conference on her blog, Adventures in Genealogy Education.
- The Education and Technology and Mobile Learning blog shares 15 handy Chrome Browser extensions for student researchers and academics that are great for family history researchers as well, IMO. [I use quite a few of these.]
- Yesterday, USGenweb volunteer contributors uploaded 102 files for various counties in the following US states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, and Virginia.
- Recently, Genealogy Trails volunteer contributors added listings for the 1883 Pensioners List for Presidio County, Texas; El Paso County, Texas; and Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. They also updated marriage information for El Paso County, Texas.
- Ancestry.com added 2 new indexes for 3rd party websites for Rhode Island and Ohio yesterday. And they also added 2 new databases -- one for Florida and one that encompasses the following US ports [US Select Crews and Manifests, 1890-1958]: Bangor, Maine; Charleston, South Carolina; Galveston, Texas; Houston, Texas; Pensacola, Florida; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and San Diego, California.
