While You (and I) Were Out
Posted by Diane

I hope you had some quality R&R over the holidays! I finished up my shopping and wrapping, hosted 35 relatives for a lively Christmas dinner (everyone pitched in, nobody spilled and we had a great time), continued preparations for the baby’s arrival in a month or so, caught up on past seasons of “Bones” on Netflix and packed away the holiday decorations. A relaxing and productive break.

It’s hard making your brain return from vacationland and get back to work (at least it is for me), but here goes! Here are some genealogical goings-on from the past coupla weeks, including a few announcements from FamilySearch:
  • FamilySearch also has started several new volunteer indexing projects, including US censuses, tax and vital records, and its first project in Polish. See the FamilySearch blog for details on each project and a contact link if you can volunteer.
  • British genealogy site Genes Reunited has added the original householder schedules for the entire 1911 UK and Wales census. The records are available by subscription or on a pay-per-view basis.
  • A.C. Ivory, one of the young genealogists profiled in the November 2010 Family Tree Magazine (in one of my most favorite articles I’ve worked on), has given his Find My Ancestor website and blog a new look. You’ll find new downloads and resources, a new logo, easier navigation, social media integration and more.
  • Those named to new positions in the genealogy world include Matt Wright as editor of the Federation of Genealogical Societies’ electronic quarterly, FGS FORUM; and Laura Murphy DeGrazia and Karen Mauer Green as co-editors of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society’s New York Genealogical and Biographical Record
