Rootstech Sessions now online free

Picture1Rootstech is a family history & technology conference that takes place each February in Salt Lake City, Utah. A number of this year’s conference session are now available online free of charge.

This is a conference that I have promised myself I will attend one day, but until the piggy bank is full enough I shall settle down and enjoy watching these videos and learning what technology holds for us genealogists.

Enjoy !


Happy Christmas

Merry Christmas & a Peaceful New Year

to all visitors to Madaboutgenealogy

I’ll start posting again on 29 December, but if you need a family history fix before then there is always the archived postings Winking smile


clip_image002Madaboutgenealogy has been a bit quiet of late due to a computer malfunction. I am awaiting Mr Dell to deliver a new all singing…all dancing computer shortly and then I shall be able to start working on the backlog of websites that I have found to share with you all!!



Changes to the website


Hi everyone

I am trialling a different approach to posting onto the Madaboutgenealogy website. I will post news, articles and updates on the front page (blog) part of the site, but no longer publish each individual addition. Hopefully this will mean that more content gets added to the website more quickly. I’ll see how it goes.


So for today the update is that I have added lots of content to the Bedfordshire page, lots of links for all sorts of genealogical subjects.

To see the new links click here



Merry Christmas



Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year to all readers of

There will be no postings in the website for the next 10 days as I shall be away from my computer.

Thank you all for visiting the website and there will be plenty of new, exciting developments on the site in 2010 so keep dropping me!!
