Have Your Say
The September issue of Family Tree Magazine came in the mail yesterday. Your 101 Websites list included a few that are new to me–awesome! Our kids are huge Lord of the Rings fans, so thanks to the “Family Drama” piece, we’ll have a link to look at together. The article on tombstone care was chock-full of information and easily digestible. Second Life? I’ll give it a second look. The first time I tried to access it, it didn’t like Macs or Safari.

Editor’s note: According to the Second Life system requirements, Mac owners can now play the game. You just need to have an Intel-based system running OS 10.5 or newer with an AVI or NVIDIA graphics card.
Just got the September 2011 issue in the mail, and I liked the “Family Drama” item in the Genealogy Insider. It’s true–you do start wondering about fictional characters’ ancestry. You forgot one famous one that’s been done: Nancy Drew. Collectors of the books have “researched” Nancy’s genealogy, and some of it’s in The Nancy Drew Scrapbook by Karen Plunkett-Powell (St. Martin’s Press). I don’t think the Hardy Boys have a family tree, though.
