Genealogy News Corral, Jan. 16-20

  • Genealogy data service Genealogy Today has launched a redesigned home page, easier site navigation and an improved search. This site focuses on smaller datasets, such as Masonic rosters, rural school and college catalogs, insurance claims and church catalogs, published between 1830 and 1930. The search works faster, with a form that offers more options and filters. In your search results, free and paid resources are  combined into a single results set that highlights new and updated items, and identifies free resources and those on other websites. 

  • Registration is open for the 2012 Southern California Genealogy Jamboree, taking place Thursday through Sunday, June 8 to 10, at the LA Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel in Burbank, Calif. Early-bird registration discounts are available through April 22. Register on the SCGS website.
  • The Federation of Genealogical Societies has opened registration for its 2012 annual conference, too. It's scheduled for Aug. 29 to Sept. 1, at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex in Birmingham, Ala. (We'll be there!) Early bird registration is available through July 1. Register on the conference website.
  • WikiTree.com, the family tree site covered in the December 2011 Family Tree Magazine, will be available only by invitation from a current WikiTree member. "We’ve had users abusing our wide range of free services and treating the site like their personal back-up service. Not only does this drain our limited resources, it hurts other community members and what we’re trying to accomplish," says WikiTree creator Chris Whitten. "By making membership strictly invitation-only, we can give our community some breathing room to clean up the genealogical messes that irresponsible users have left behind." If you want to join, you can request an invite using a link on the site's membership page.
