It’s Friday, and that means it’s time to rustle up some genealogy news:
- Got St. Louis-area ancestors? Consider subscribing to Genealogy and House History News, a free monthly e-mail update listing additions to the Missouri History Museum’s Genealogy and Local History Index (click the Sign up for the E-mail List link). If you find a relative, you can order a photocopy of the record.
- On Kimberlys Genealogy Blog at About.com: Genealogy, Kimberly Powell reports that almost 200,000 Scottish burial records from the 1800s are now online on a UK pay-per-view site called DeceasedOnline. See Kimberleys post for details about the collection.
- FamilySearch has added a few more databases to the Record Search Pilot, thanks to its hard-working indexing volunteers. You can search indexes and view images of Protestant church records from France (1612-1906).
The 1920 US census index (but not record images) was added for Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey and South Carolina.
You can browse images of church records from Italy, Slovakia, Argentina and Mexico (these indexes are still being processed).
To find records associated with the place your ancestors lived, click Browse our Record Collections on the Record Search home page, then click an area of the map.
- Happy third birthday to RootsTelevision! The free genealogy TV Web site shared a list of its most popular videos, several of which relate to family history happenings that broke into mainstream news. See the list on the Og Blog.
My trusty colleagues Allison and Grace will post while I’m sneaking in some vacation next week. I might chime in from afar, or I might be too entranced by autumnal loveliness to make it happen. We’ll see.
