Follow Friday goes global

The National Genealogical Society (NGS) launched NGS Monthly, this week. This new digital publication will feature articles on genealogical methodology, research techniques, sources, and the latest news from NGS.

Blog posts worth reading:
  • Michael John Neill does Genealogy Tip of the Day and his tip on Tuesday this week was awesome. His tip was about teachers and newspapers. If you have a teacher in your tree – I have several – this is a must read! Thank you, Michael!
  • Amy Johnson Crow, of No Story Too Small, reinforced some great information about dying without a will in her 52 Ancestors post this week. If your ancestor died without a will, chances are that everyone got named in the court records following the division of the estate!
  • I love Vera Miller’s blog, Find Lost Russian Family. This week she shared her latest find, a database – in English – that covers WWI soldiers.

  • I am a FTM user and will probably not change (I hate change) but I came across Molly McLaughlin’s review of Brother’s Keeper 7.0 in PC Magazine. She calls it an “excellent tool for the serious genealogist.”
