- On Deb's Delvings in Genealogy, Debbie informs us of FamilyTree DNA's Holiday Sale going on right now. [Perfect holiday gift for your favorite genealogist or for the genealogist to snap up and give their relatives. Just who is the real recipient of this "gift"? ;) Regardless, it's definitely worth pinning to our Gift Wish List Pinterest Board.]
- If we're needing a new laptop to help us keep up with all those DNA results we'll be receiving from all those kits we bought, PCMag.com gives us The Top 10 Best Laptops as well as How to Buy a Laptop. [You'd think the holidays were around the corner. Or something. *pinning*]
- Deb shares with us how going back and reviewing our genealogy "first blush" research might reveal we're "double Bohemian" and might get us an awesome birthday present. [And might help us get past a research problem or 2. And? Another great holiday gift idea for your favorite family historian. *pinning*]
- On the Genealogybank.com Blog, Gena gives us another great example of how newspapers can rock our family history research.
- And from news across the pond, more family deeds have been added to FamilyDeeds.com. [Nice how "across the pond" can just be a click away.]
- And from news Down Under, the National Archives of Australia is launching a new website to commemorate the centenary of the First World War -- Discovering Anzacs. [Down Under can be a click away too.]
- On the Olive Tree Genealogy Blog, Lorine shares with us the free Reconstructed New York Ships Passenger Lists from 1624-1664.
- Yesterday, Ancestry.com added a new database to its World Subscription service: England & Wales, Quaker, Birth, Marriage, Death Registers, 1578-1837.
- And USGenWeb volunteer contributors uploaded 159 files yesterday for various counties in the following U.S. states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan, Ohio, Virginia, and Wyoming. Did they add something you've been needing for your research?
