Genealogy Snippets 11 July 2012

Genealogy Snippets are short news items that I think you would want to hear about sooner rather than later.

1. Family Search has just put online 76 million new records, those guys never do things in small numbers !! Amongst the countries covered are Canada, Ireland and New Zealand. https://familysearch.org/

2. The Family History Library in Salt Lake City has added more books to their collection. These items are only available for viewing at the library. For a list of the books click on https://www.familysearch.org/learn

3. FindMyPast has just added to it’s Kent collection with 12,832 burials from Greenwich, Kent. Greenwich is on the edges of London so if you are missing someone in London then it would be worthwhile searching in the Kent collection for them. Date range is 1748 – 1793.

4.FindMyPast has also added to its Wales Collection, this time it is for the parish of Llanymawddwy, Mallwyd. Baptisms 1568 – 1894, Marriages 1568 – 1837 and Burials 1813 – 1888.

Think that is all the snippets for today, but I have just seen that Find My Past has just put up a major collection and that deserves a full post.

Guide to Salt Lake City

Through reading Dick Eastman’s blog I came across this great guide to Salt Lake City it is called “The Chart Chick’s Quick Insider’s Guide to Salt Lake City”. Written by Janet Hovorka it is an excellent guide to Salt Lake City for genealogist, she covers all aspects of a trip to Salt Lake City. Wish I had had this before my first trip there!!

The guide is available as a free PDF download and if you want a paper copy that is available for $15 US.

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 !
