(+) Sub-subtitle: How to Save Money on Cell Phone Calls When Traveling Overseas

This article has nothing to do with genealogy. If you are looking for genealogy articles, you might want to skip this one. However, I decided to write it after reading a comment by a newsletter reader.

The following is a Plus Edition article written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.

Last week RootsTech announced the keynote speakers for the opening session of RootsTech 2016, to be held February 3rd through the 6th at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. I’ve warmed up considerably to non-genealogist speakers. They have been informative, funny, moving, and inspiring. They’ve brought in perspectives we sometimes don’t get when we draw exclusively from within our community. And they draw into our community, attendees that might otherwise have had no contact with genealogy.

We're delighted to introduce Search Connect™, a unique innovation released today that allows you to connect with other MyHeritage members who are searching for the same ancestors and people as you. Collaboration through Search Connect™ can open new doors, and provide exciting discoveries about your family history. Use Search Connect™ now! Search Connect™ includes millions of searches made by MyHeritage members.

Save a little, get a lot

Discovering that you have genealogical ties to New York can be cause for joy, such as when The Legal Genealogist found records showing that immigrant ancestors came through Ellis Island to begin their new lives here in the 19th and 20th centuries.

But discovering that you have genealogical ties to New York can also be cause for despair, such as when you discover that most parts of New York don’t have vital records dating back nearly as far as we’d like; it didn’t even try to require recordation of vital statistics until 1847 and that effort was a failure.

MyHeritage has just announced what I think is a major breakthrough in genealogy research, called Search Connect™. This new technology helps distant relatives – even distant relatives who have never met or even heard of each other – work together to find the origins of a shared ancestor.

I first heard about this new technology in July while attending the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies annual conference, held this year in Jerusalem.

The following announcement was written by the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies:

Seattle, Washington – The International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies has announced a call for papers for its 36th Annual Conference to be held from August 7 to 12, 2016 in Seattle, Washington.

“The Wandering Jew” is the theme of the 2016 conference.

Topic tracks include:

More than a dozen years ago when I started genealogy, one ofmy first finds was my great-grandmother's 1926 deathcertificate on microfilm at a reader in the Ohio Genealogical Societyconference exhibit hall.
