  • The New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) has launched a blog called Vita Brevis (“life is short”) that will share genealogy expertise and news from NEHGS editor-in-chief Scott C. Steward and other staff. It’s a great chance to get an inside look at NEHGS research projects, family stories and research strategies.
  • The Southern California Genealogical Society announced its 45th annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree, June 6 to 8 in Burbank, Calif. It’ll be preceded on June 5 by the daylong Family History and DNA: Genetic Genealogy in 2014 conference. Learn more about both events at the Jamboree website.
