Last week I posted that it was a MARCH news week – March? Apparently these last few months have just flown by! And now here we are at the end of April. Here’s hoping that our last snow fall was it this past week! 🙂
I’m spending this weekend at the Indiana Genealogical Society conference! I am definitely looking forward to it and am currently at the society meeting typing this up. It’s hard to do this post ahead of time!
ALSO: Don’t forget about the book contest for Dear Mother, Love Daddy!!! Contest ends May 1st! These are two autographed copies as well! Even better!
- Beach pictures from 1913 in color! These look surprisingly modern in many of them. Very neat!
- D. Joshua Taylor from The Genealogy Roadshow posted an article called “The Genealogy Factor: Graveyards and Gravestones,” in JSTOR Daily. Great information!
- Speaking of JSTOR, Geneabloggers is holding a contest to win a pass from JSTOR! Check out more information here on the contest and what you get.
- “Don’t Call Them Bums: The Unsung History of America’s Hard-Working Hobos,” by Lisa Hix – who knew?
- Instant Discoveries is from MyHeritage and is rather new – to learn more about it, check out EOGN’s write up here. It’s like adding people from other’s trees to yours like on Ancestry.com
- I’ve loved those “…through history…” videos that show things like women’s fashion, women’s make-up, etc. Well now there’s one for men! “American Facial Hair Throughout History!” Check it out here.
- The Board for Certification of Genealogists posted their webinars – some are free and others are available for a modest fee. Check it out!
- New records on FindMyPast! Derbyshire and Persi! Check it out here – also check out their FindMyPast Friday’s – Yorkshire records, POW records, Australian records, Irish records, and US Billion Graves index.
