I've written before about Family Search.

There is an excellent wiki (....) that's part of their web site that brings together the diverse knowledge of the FamilySearch staff with that of other users and places it all at our disposal.

Start your search by typing a location or topic in the search field, or by clicking on the map for the region you'd like to begin.

In the past, I've said some really awful things about Ancestry.com's notorious family trees, which are contributed by Ancestry users and often contain mistakes and erroneous connections. I've even warned against using them.

As politicians say, my thinking has evolved on this issue.

I'm not going to take back everything I said about them.

Happy New Year!

And as it's New Year's, that means time for some New Year's resolutions, right? What better time to make some genealogical resolutions than now?

Have a seat amongst your files and take a good hard look at the things you need. Make a list of the things you'd like to get done and there are your New Year's genealogical resolutions.

If you're anything like me, you're always on the lookout for new and fun ways to learn about genealogy.

Maybe the most versatile method of genealogical education is listening to podcasts. It's like listening to a radio show about genealogy, but you don't have to make sure you're sitting near a radio at a certain time. You can listen anytime you want.
