~~ At Nichols Library today we were assisting someone in newspaper research and in doing so I stumbled upon a new site. Well, actually the site is *not* new. It is just new to me.
The site is Newspaper Abstracts and covers not only the United States but other countries as well.
Obituaries are filled with wonderful pieces of information such as place of birth, parents names, spouse, children, grand-children. I personally love reading the “old” obits which often would tell the sad story of what caused the death. I once read one that basically said that the poor young man had been stupid (he was killed in an accident) otherwise he’d be alive that day and not a sorrow to his dear mother.
Open to anyone interested in genealogy.
ALSO… We will have a short course on Excel. Using Excel to build a timeline and
> How to sort information by date, event or source.
PLUS… Also NARA OPA (Online Public Access) & how to use it with the census to locate ancestors, & the power of “Control F ” in research.
Meeting will be held at the Nichols Library in Gadsden at 1 Cabot Ave. Map to library.
Heartbleed bug: Check which sites have been patched – A compiled list of the top 100 sites across the Web, and checked to see if the Heartbleed bug was patched. Be aware that such a list will be updated as more information is available.
Well — so did I. Your NEAGS Site Admin — ME — missed it. My excuse is … you ready? Sick, sick, sick. Trust me! No one would have wanted me there.
But from everything I have heard and read — this was one NOT to be missed. From the Dinner Theater night to the Saturday event. Well, drat! Snif & Boo hoo!
Bet you feel exactly the same way I do … that is, if you missed it too.
