Det var inte bara stadens magistrat och rådshusrätt som höll sina möten i den lilla rådstugan vid torget i Vimmerby förr, utan sedan flera hundra år tillbaka var Vimmerby även tingsplats för Sevede härad.

Irish also more prone to certain diseases, DNA tests show

A new “DNA map” of the Emerald Isle reveals that the Vikings raiders intermingled with local women far more than was previously thought.

Genealogist Gianpiero Cavalleri of the Royal College of Surgeons pieced together detailed map after studying the DNA of over 500 Irishmen and women.

“Plenty of clues already showed that Vikings had been to Ireland, including ruins, artifacts, and Norwegian family names… The [genetic] signatures that turned up in Ireland are most similar to those from the north and west coasts of Norway, where Vikings were most active,” Cavalleri told National Geographic.

Have you seen the ads for these things? The ACEPC W5 Windows 10 Mini Desktop Computer is a Windows 10 computer on what looks like an oversized flash memory stick. It literally is smaller than a pack of cigarettes. In fact, it is about the size of two packs of chewing gum.

This isn’t a pedigree chart drawn to strict genealogical standards, but it is amusing. With the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie being released this week, this is is a “must have” for any genealogist who is also a Star Wars fan.

NOTE:I originally published this article in this newsletter in 1998. Yet it is still a problem today. It surfaced again in an email message I received today from a newsletter reader. I receive similar messages most every week from concerned genealogists who don’t like to see online “fairy tales” in user-contributed information that is published in genealogy web sites. I expect to re-publish this article every year or two until the problem is solved.

Has anyone tried this? I just downloaded and installed it last night on my Android cell phone and am learning how to use it. I’d love to hear from a more experienced user.

If the advertisements are correct, TextGrabber may be a new revolution in OCR (Optical Character Recognition). I can see this having lots of uses in genealogy as well as for dozens of other purposes as well.

In honor of the holidays, we share an incredible story about MyHeritage user Roswitha, of Germany. She received a life-changing message on MyHeritage from her brother on Christmas. She believed he had died years ago. Roswitha’s mother immigrated to Canada in 1956, leaving Roswitha, 2, behind. I stayed and grew up with my grandparents in Germany. My mother was pregnant when she emigrated and, in September 1956, my sister was born in Montreal.
