- WikiTree, a free family tree wiki, has added a new feature that helps you determine how genetic genealogy could aid your research. It can be difficult to figure out which test will best answer your genealogical question, and which relatives need to take the test. Now on WikiTree, you can choose a commercially available DNA test from a dropdown menu, and the wiki shows you which ancestors you can learn about from taking that test. The feature highlights when a genealogical puzzle could be solved by taking a test, which test would help, and who should take it. See the press release about WikiTree’s new DNA feature here.
- FamilySearch has added more than 1.1 million index records and record images to the free record search at FamilySearch.org. They come from Belgium, Nicaragua, Spain and the United States. Those with North Carolina ancestors will be particularly pleased to see searchable estate files and marriages from that state. I also thought the US National register of Scientific and Technical Personnel Files (1954-1970) looked interesting, though I didn’t find any relatives in it.
- Deceased Online, a UK commercial website of burial and cremation records, has added thousands of military burials from sources at the British National Archives in Kew. The records date back to 1756 and comprise digital images of burial registers for eight cemeteries. You can see which cemeteries, as well as an example of a record and more information, on the Deceased Online blog.
