- Registration is now open for the National Genealogical Society's 2014 Conference which will be held in Richmond, Virginia. [I heard recently all the hotels are booked? If so, conferences need to be marketing their registrations/conferences sooner then or pick venues with more hotels.]
- Rootstech has a new website design. Rootstech 2014 is coming up quick with it being held February 6th - 8th in Salt Lake City, Utah, with the tech part, Developer Day, being held on February 5th. However, there are more tech-related workshops for researchers this year being conducted throughout the main conference -- mostly for beginners. [Availability of hotels? A couple are sold out. Not sure about the rest but there are smaller hotels nearby. Not sure about their availability.]
- According to Cult of Mac, iTranslate is now available for the iPad. What's cool about this app is its text-to-speech capabilities and with an in-app upgrade, you can get Siri voice recognition & other features. You can read more about iTranslate on their website, too.

- Here are this week's upcoming genealogy webinars, chats, and hangouts that are listed on the Geneawebinars Calendar. [There are others that occur, but they have not been contributed to the calendar by independent parties.]
- Hate scanning, but need to get it done? Me too. I much prefer researching and writing and just about anything to scanning. So I started a virtual scanning group on Facebook so I could have virtual support and give virtual support to others. Basically, it's about accountability. You're welcome to join us today at 3pm CT for Sunday ScanDay. With one hour a week, we got this.
- And yesterday USGenWeb volunteer contributors uploaded 138 files for various counties in the following US states: Florida, Georgia, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
