  • The Genealogists for Families project, coordinated by genealogists Judy Webster and Joan Miller, uses the microfunding website Kiva.org to make small loans to those in need around the world. Borrowers use the funds for businesses that support their families, for example, a man in Rwanda used a Kiva loan to buy raw materials to expand his carpentry business. So far, Genealogists for Families has made 61 loans totaling $1,525. To get involved, sign up with Kiva. You can lend as little as $25. As the loan is repaid, you can lend to someone else.
  • The Genealogical Society of Ireland and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland are working together on a DNA project to learn more about the Irish population. Coordinators will collect DNA samples and genealogical information from participants. Participants won't receive results unless important health information is discovered. You'll find more details in this article on TheJournal.ie.

Thank you so much for mentioning Genealogists for Families. The project now has a blog and a Facebook group so team members can get to know each other better.
