- Congratulations to Lisa Louise Cooke, podcaster and blogger at Genealogy Gems (and Family Tree Magazine podcast host).

Appadvice.com reviewers called it a great resource for both amateur and professional Genealogists The interface is easy to use and the type and controls are larger, making this application ideal even for older users.
The Genealogy Gems podcast app features streaming of the Genealogy Gems podcast, plus show notes and bonus material. Its available for the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad (at the iTunes store) and Android phone (in the Marketplace).
- FamilySearch added 4.3 million record images this week, nearly half of those to its Hungary Civil Registration, 18951980, collection (my husband is a quarter Hungarian, so this moves up his tree a few notches on my to-do list).
Other new records come from Austria, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Panama, and the US. Note these record images aren’t yet indexed, so you’ll need to browse them. See the updated collections and link to them from here.
