The following is a Plus Edition article written by and copyright by Dick Eastman. 

“ISBN” stands for “International Standard Book Number.” An ISBN number is an ISO standard and normally is found in all books published in the United States since 1970 and on many books published in other countries as well. Technically, an ISBN number is not a requirement for any book; you may publish books without such a number.

Several months ago, genealogy company 23andMe Inc. filed a lawsuit against rival Ancestry.com claiming false advertising and patent infringement. 23andMe asked the courts to invalidate the “Ancestry” trademark. The lawsuit claimed Ancestry sells a DNA-based ancestry test that infringes 23andMe’s patent. See my earlier article at http://bit.ly/2L9ewBC for the details.

In court yesterday, Ancestry told a California federal judge that the patent is invalid under the U.S.

Our first-ever international user conference that will take place in Oslo, Norway is now less than 78 days away! Taking place on the weekend of November 2–4, 2018, MyHeritage LIVE, will feature lectures from world-renowned experts in the fields of genealogy and DNA, as well as presentations by senior MyHeritage staff members and hands-on workshops that will take you through MyHeritage tools and features step-by-step.

A family tree is a fascinating way to trace your ancestry. Commonly shown as a chart with the oldest generations at the top and the youngest generations at the bottom, these simple layouts allow you to discover the line of past and present family members that led to your very existence.

The planning for MyHeritage’s International User Conference is well underway. This should be a top-notch conference and, for most of us, it is a chance to visit a great tourist destination: the city of Oslo. The conference web site may be found at: https://live2018.myheritage.com.

A jam-packed schedule will include lectures from top MyHeritage staff and world-renowned genealogists and DNA experts. There will be three class tracks:

NOTE:This article has nothing to do with genealogy. However, it is information that I suspect will interest many computer owners, so I am offering it here. If you are looking for true genealogy-related articles, you might want to skip this one.
