The EU (not "Europe", come on, learn the difference between a continent and a bureaucratic organisation) is considering a snippet tax.

"Vries, Drenthe, Newfoundland And Labrador, Canada"
#genealogy #Ancestry #wrung
In the ever-expanding category of embarrassing Ancestry.com "Smart matches" creating wrung place names, I now present to you "Vries, Drenthe, Newfoundland And Labrador, Canada".
Any Dutch research understands what happened. Too lazy to type "Netherlands", the original researcher typed "Vries, Drenthe, NL" instead of "Vries, Drenthe, Netherlands", and then Ancestry's "smart" (cough) place name matching changed that into "Vries, Drenthe, Newfoundland And Labrador, Canada"...
BTW, do notice the upper-case A in "And". That is wrung too.

Status of 24.1 updater for FTM 2014 / FTMM 3 users: never
#genealogy #software #Mackiev #FTM #updates
This is the latest support article:
https://support.mackiev.com/380862-Free-updates-for-2014-and-Mac-3-users "When is the update coming for 2014 and Mac 3 users?
The free updater has not been released yet. We still have fixes to make on it based on what those who have purchased it as upgrades have told us. So please be as patient as you can. And know that we're working hard to make the new versions everything they should be for you. Everyone who has signed up for the Family Tree Maker mailing list will get an email the moment it's available."

Note: the title line of this text originally said "not yet". With that mistake, I am partly to blame for some of the confusion. It now says what it should have said all along: never. FTM 2014 / FTMM 3 users are not getting the 24.1 update.

I consider this less than professional. They promised updates "soon".
Everyone with older versions (e.g. FTM 2012) got to buy the new version at a discount. New users got the new version at a discount.
Only the users who bought the latest Ancestry.com versions, arguably the most loyal users,  are still waiting for their free update.
I'll gladly believe the next public build will be better, but FTM 2014 & FTMM 3 users should not have to wait for the next public build, they should be able to install build 429 ASAP, just like all other FTM users.
When is the update coming for 2014 and Mac 3 users? The free updater has not been released yet. We still have fixes to make on it based on what those who have purchased it as upgrades have told us.

Given the lack of support, I wish FTM had stayed dead.

Google Guide for Genealogy by Barry Ewell by Kimberly Powell
#genealogy #plagiarism
If you check the Amazon.com listing Google Guide for Genealogy by Barry Ewell today, you'll see that only the cover shown still list Barry Ewell as the author, but Amazon now lists Kimberly Powell as the author.

Wow! Some well-meaning hacker must have done that.

Meanwhile, the reviews are now coming in. To add to the 11 pre-seeded 5-star reviews, there are now 16 1-star reviews, all mentioning plagiarism, and nothing with 2, 3 or 4 stars.
