- We have just 2 weeks left to enroll in Boston University's Certificate Program in Genealogical Research or their Genealogy Essentials Course.
- Lorine shares with us how we can make sure our 23andme DNA results are saved or backed up. Something we should be doing no matter the results of the FDA and marketing fiasco at 23andme. [Which, by the way, has absolutely nothing to do with the genealogy aspect of their business. But the effects could be worrisome.]
- And here is a great illustration from the Legal Genealogist about how important it is to know the laws of our ancestor's time.
- I'm very happy to hear that THE Pioneer Woman will be a keynote speaker at Rootstech 2014. She's an awesome storyteller. Take a look at the rest of their keynote speaker lineup. Obviously, Rootstech is keeping up with their theme from last year -- storytelling -- in order to engage a bigger audience. Smart. Who doesn't love a story? [*cough* 4YourFamilyStory.com *cough*] It'll be interesting to see how they incorporate technology into the storytelling process. Will I see you at Rootstech 2014?
- Nerdy, but could be potentially helpful [which , if you think about it, is kinda my motto here on 4YourFamilyStory.com]: Top 11 Trusted (And Free) Search Engines for Scientific and Academic Research from emergingedtech.com. It's the "academic" part which caught my eye, like in, perhaps an academic has written something about our ancestor or where they lived or the time period. So, you know, finding that out would fabulous, no? Just a thought. [Unless you're partial to research brick walls. *shrugs*]
- Got Illinois ancestors? [Why, yes. Yes, I do.] GenealogyBank.com now has 339 Illinois newspapers in their database with a nice clickable list and they give us some pointers <grin> on how to find what we're looking for. [Very handy.]
- I think Virginia volunteers are trying to outdo Michigan volunteers. LOL. All the more clues for us, though! USGenWeb volunteer contributors uploaded 238 files yesterday for various counties in the following US states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
Other things you might be interested in. Maybe. Maybe not. But maybe.
