Genealogy News Corral, Sept. 16-20
MyHeritage has launched a new feature that lets you save the
records you discover using the site's
SuperSearch to the relevant family member profiles in your
family tree. You can also easily extract information from any
record you save (which previously was only possible through the
site's Record Matches)...
- The National Genealogical Society is conducting a survey for those who’ve attended one of its conferences, purchased one of its publications or signed up for one of its courses. Both members and nonmembers are invited to respond. You can take the survey here.
- FamilySearch has recently added more than 2.7 million indexed records and images from Brazil, England, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Peru, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland. If you’re researching ancestors in any of these places, visit the FamilySearch news blog to see which collections have been added or updated, and to click through to search or browse them.
- FamilySearch also announced that the one millionth photo has been added to its Photos and Stories feature on FamilySearch.org. The announcement also includes some helpful hints about uploading photos to FamilySearch.org.
