Det här är min pappas farbror Karl Irenes. Han föddes den 5 april 1881 på Nyborg i Västra Tunhems socken i Västergötland.

När jag växte upp visste jag inte särskilt mycket om farfars släkt. De var avlägsna eftersom de bodde så långt bort. Så långt reste vi inte på 50-talet och utan bil.

The leaves had already fallen from the trees surrounding the modest two-story farmhouse belonging to Fred and Christina (Schmidt) Nelson when this photograph was taken in late 1904.

Situated near the scenic bluffs along the Missouri River west of Yankton, Yankton County, South Dakota, the house was said to have had a creek running through the corner of the kitchen as a source of fresh water.

Use a Twitter bot to colorize photos? It sounds strange but is true.

If you tweet the Colorise Bot a photograph of a black-and-white photograph, will transform it into a technicolor picture. The best part? It’s super fast, with some images colorized in a matter of seconds. The new tool is the product of two British teenagers, Oli Callaghan and Finnian Anderson. Oli is 18, while Finnian is just 17 years old.

Tov Johannesson Murukleiv var en stortyv fra Heddal i Telemark, som det fortsatt går historier om i distriktet.

Murukleiven var fryktet i hjemtraktene, og hadde stjålet på utallige gårder. Han reiste også rundt i andre bygder og stjal, og kom blant annet helt til Sverige. I tillegg klarte han til stadighet å rømme fra lensmenn og arrest.

Late yesterday afternoon I spoke to the managers of It seems Monday's upload of additional GRO records was released to the public in error; a test site was supposed to be doing the rounds within the GRO, allowing any errors in function or delivery to be sorted out before it went live. Instead, it just went live.

Unfortunately, the test site had quite a few problems: an 'old style' index remains on the site, causing duplications; registration districts had gone awol in older index entries resulting in nil returns when searching by registration district; many of the new-release of records were not available, and where they were, they often were flying solo, ie without the image of the register entry.

Nu har vi publicerat ännu ett flygfotoarkiv i ArkivDigital – AB Stockholms Aero / Bromma Flygbild.

AB Stockholms Aero, även kallat ASA-flyg, var en aktör inom svenskt allmänflyg från 1950 och fram till 1965. Man drev flygskolor på flera orter i landet, sysslade med flygfotografering och var även involverade i försäljningen av Auster-flygplan.

När företaget gick i konkurs 1965, köptes flygbilderna upp av Bromma Flygbild. Detta företaget var sedan verksamt mellan 1965-1970.

Biografiska uppslagsverk har alltid varit till stor nytta för släktforskare och personhistoriskt intresserade. Inte minst de detaljerade karriäruppgifterna kring tjänster och avancemang, inklusive militära grader, kan man svårligen få fram på annat sätt.

Om den lilla notisen också innehåller ett porträtt, ett fotografi, blir man naturligtvis ännu gladare.

For litt over to uker siden hadde Anita Krohn Traaseth, direktør i Innovasjon Norge og NRK-profilen Hans Olav Brenner aldri møtt hverandre. Nå eier de en tidligere prestegård sammen.

For Hans Olav Brenner handler det mest om historien som skjuler seg i veggene. I dagene før budfristen gikk ut fordypet han seg i bunkevis av skriftlige kilder hos Riksarkivet.

Rune Andersen har hele sitt komikerliv imitert andre mennesker på scenen.

Men når han nå lager sin hittil vanskeligste og viktigste forestilling skal den handle om han selv.

Sentralt i forestilling som er kalt «Lykkeliten», er de vonde opplevelsene han og hans tre søstre har fra barndommen med en voldelig far.

Here is an interesting announcement I received this morning. I have briefly looked at the site but haven’t really been able to determine its usefulness. If you have used the Global Research Library Inc., please post your comments below.

The Global Research Library claims to have genealogical records for every part of America as well as most foreign countries. It has some free information available but most of the records require a paid subscription to access.

Sad news: the CompuServe forums are closing down. Admittedly, they have been declining for years and the end always appeared to be inevitable. Still, it is sad news when it the shutdown is finally announced. Many online genealogists got their start on CompuServe’s Genealogy Forum.

You can read more about the closure of CompuServe’s forums at:

I feel especially saddened as I was the one who founded the Genealogy Forum on CompuServe in 1988.
