How to Figure out Which Holiday Is Shown in Old Family Photos Posted by Maureen

Here's a picture problem that family photo historians often encounter: Photos of an unnamed, unknown celebrations. It could be local event, a national holiday, or a gathering of relatives for some family event. All too frequently, it's unclear.

For instance, let's look at Flag Day.

Flag Day, June 14, commemorates the adoption of our flag on June 14, 1777.

I must admit I have become accustomed to having two computer screens attached to my one computer at home. I have long used two 27-inch monitors connected to my one desktop computer. However, there is a problem when traveling: the tiny, single 11-inch screen on my laptop computer seems very constraining after using two side-by-side 27-inch monitors at home!

The following announcement was written by Family ChartMasters:

CEDAR HILLS, Utah – June 9, 2017 – A beautiful new way to display the results of a genetic family history test has been created for the millions of people who are getting to know their ancestors through DNA testing. Family ChartMasters, the genealogy chart printing leader for over 15 years, has designed a new DNA ethnicity chart to help family history enthusiasts show off their genetic heritage.

A study conducted by scientists at Pfizer Inc. and 23andMe and published in the journal Human Molecular Genetics, found 15 genetic variants associated with the size of welts left behind from mosquito bites, the intensity of itch, as well as how attractive some of us are to the insects.

The study looked at several mosquito bite traits together, and the researchers found overlapping genetic associations for each.

An article in the MyHeritage Blog states:

“We’re happy to announce the publication on MyHeritage Super Search of seven large and significant historical record collections from the Netherlands. These new collections, totaling over 116 million records, cover about five centuries, and fascinating periods in Dutch history. During this time, the Netherlands’ population grew from an estimated 1 million people to over 4.5 million inhabitants.

“Included are a census-like collection called “population registers,” a set of vital civil records (civil births, marriages, and deaths), and a set of vital church records (baptisms, marriages, and burials).

Just three weeks after uploading a 32,000-strong mix of non-Catholic marriages, land and gravestone records (see blogpost), RootsIreland's East Galway database has uploaded an additional 30,000 Roman Catholic baptismal transcriptions.

The new baptism records are from the following parishes:

Abbey Duniry 1870-1909 Ballinakill 1838-1915 Ballymacward 1841-1900 Carrabane 1831-1902 Craughwell 1847-1895 Fohenagh 1827-1917 Kiltullagh 1884-1901 Kilchreest 1855-1917 Caltra 1840-1917

The date span of available baptism transcriptions for two parishes have also been extended, as follows:
