Dear Ancestry Insider,

I have been using FamilySearch Memories as my main repository for family history-related photographs and documents, with the hopes that this material will be preserved “forever.” Do you think there is a chance that the LDS Church could abandon the FamilySearch Family Tree and Memories projects, with all of this material being lost?

Thanks, Thomas Abbott

Fox News recently invited MyHeritage to the channel’s Fox & Friends morning show to talk about MyHeritage DNA and to help the show’s hosts learn more about each host’s origins. Author Yvette Corporon, a friend of MyHeritage and author of the upcoming book “Something Beautiful Happened,” presented the anchors with their incredible results. Yvette revealed the DNA ethnicity results of three of the hosts and provided genealogical research and fascinating historical documents, to back it up, found by the MyHeritage research team.

Old Family Photos of Women in the Workforce Posted by Maureen

Jeanine Black saw the post How to Learn About Working Women in Old Photos and sent me two images of women in her family. It's a fitting end to Women's History Month.

In about 1909, her 15-year-old paternal grandmother, Louse (first on the left) worked in a Brockton, Mass., shoe factory. Louse's mother, Louise, is the first woman on the right.
