Indiana residents, you need to contact your rep. The rest of us get a voice too. Read the posting and let them hear from us in force. We can't let this happen. 
 
Indiana's budget bill eliminates the Genealogy Dept. at the Indiana State Library. I've seen a lot of people get mad on Facebook, but that's not going to save it. Take action and contact the appropriate legislators. (Contact info included here.) #genealogy #Indiana

Do you struggle to understand DNA results? an unknown author has written a great post to help with that visual. #DNA   #genealogy  
Wouldn't it be great if all writers put their names on their work?

Those name change cases are always the most fun to work! #forensic   #genealogy  
You never know what you'll find when you start looking into your family history.Maybe your ancestors farmed the same property in England for 200 years. Or, as Sid Norman found, maybe your father was . . .

Oregon Burial Site Guide available for cost of shipping. It’s a wonderful book. If you would like to have it for yourself or your society, just follow the instructions below. #genealogy #oregon  
 
Press release - Oregon Burial Site Guide We are losing our warehouse space the end of July. So the boss said to offer the Oregon Burial Site Guide, Compiled by Dean Byrd, Stanley Clarke, & Janice M. Healy free. We will send a hard back copy to everyone for the cost of shipping and handling. Prepaid $20 post marked not later than 1 July 2015. Those of you with Non-profit status please add your tax ID number. Any questions contact me. This book sold for $125 each. This book is about where the cemeteries of Oregon are located. Not lists of who is buried in them. Those are only listed for the small sites on private property with 12 or less burials. The book is 8.5" X 11" X 2" 1,200 plus pages and weighs in at about 8 lbs in the shipping carton. Fully alphabetical by county and site, each county is indexed. Black and White photos for a general idea of what monuments are in each county, with a state wide index in the back. This is a must for those researching Oregon using death certificates. We tried to pick up all the ‘also known as’ names to the sites. There are about 2500 burial sites in the 36 counties of Oregon. This material is updated and corrected, not like the material from the old ODOT book that has been put up on the web. So no this is not on the web. Make checks out to: Stoney Way LLC PO Box 5414 Aloha, OR 97006-0414. Questions to: Janice M Healy Secretary/Treasurer Stoney Way LLC Mailto:jmhealy1@comcast.net
