Genealogy News Corral, March 24-28
Posted by Diane

Online registration is now open for the 2014 Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) Conference, happening Aug. 27-30  in San Antonio. Register by July 1 for the early-bird discount. I'm especially excited for this one because my dad's dad's family lived for a time in Texas, although conference sessions—taught by many of the experts whose books, blogs and Family Tree Magazine articles you read—will cover topics to help you research across the United States and abroad. Learn more about the FGS 2014 conference, read the conference blog and register here.

Registration also is open for the Indiana Historical Society's 2014 Midwestern Roots conference, Aug. 1-2 in Indianapolis, Ind. Coincidentally, my dad's mom's family is from the Hoosier State. Among the speakers will be Genealogy Gems' Lisa Louise Cooke (who is presenting a pre-conference Great Google Earth Game Show on July 31), Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center Director Curt Witcher, professional genealogist Amy Johnson Crow and other experts. Learn more about the Midwestern Roots 2014 conference and register here.

The Archivist at Pennsylvania's Bethany Children's home, which was established in 1867 and remains in operation today, emailed to let me know that MOcavo has digitized and indexed the home's early records. They're in three collections called Womelsdorf, Pennsylvania, Bethany Children's Home Book of Children One Index, Womelsdorf, Pennsylvania, Bethany Children's Home Book of Children Two Index, and Bethany Children's Home Book of Life Index. On Mocavo, you can search and view records in one collection at a time for free. With a subscription, you can  search and view records from multiple collections simultaneously. Learn more about the Bethany Children's Home records on Mocavo's blog.

The Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is launching a portal to give you access to photos from residential schools dating from 1885 to 1996. The LAC notes that 150,000 Aboriginal children attended more than 130 residential schools around the country. You already can see 65 photos from schools in Alberta, and you'll be able to find more photos by province or territory as they become available. Descriptions are included with dates, school names and locations when available (so far I haven't found any names of students shown in photos).
