Has anyone used UrlsBox for bookmarking? There is no contact link on the site to ask more questions. I want my bookmarks to appear in a particular order but they offer no screenshots to give me a clue as to whether their product might work for me. So, have you used it? What do you think of the product? #bookmarks #urlsbox

From +GenealogyBank - Genealogy Website , a plea for help.
Can you help? An 84 year old Austrailian woman searching for her mother's grave site :: http://ow.ly/vbPTV | pic.twitter.com/fUrBlJGMcK
“”Did you know my mother?” Please help my 84 year old mother Gwen, find her own mother’s grave. Her mother was born Hilda Josephine Hennessey on June 17th 1904, to parents Nellie Hennessey and Sidney Upton of Windsor NSW. Hilda married Albert Hall in 1927. Sadly in 1939 when my mother was only 8 years old her mother abandoned her to run away with the her lover Harry (Henry) Connvery. No one has seen them since. Did you know her? Maybe she was related to you or your friend. We know she has passed by now but would dearly love to find her final resting place and give my beautiful mother some closure before she moves on from this world. We’ve been searching for years!”"

What a talented professional! Have you listened to this interview yet? I'd recommend it!
 
This week we head to Maryland to meet genealogist Rebecca Koford. We talk about strategy to complete the CG on time, setting goals and falling in love with your client's ancestors!

You really need to follow +Marian Pierre-Louis!
 
Who are the truly bad guys from Boston history? That might be debatable but Paul Della Valle makes a pretty good case in his book Speaking Ill of the Dead: Jerks in Boston History. In this interview Paul and I debate the reputation of Bronson Alcott and Cotton Mather. Paul gives us the low-down on some of the worst characters from Beantown.

I'd like to see this conversation take off. What do you in the genealogy community want to see at a conference? I'd like to see more engaging, advanced learning opportunities. What are your thoughts?
