Don't give up on FindMyPast! Guides to 'new search' are Getting started http://bit.ly/1pj9Pmz and Censuses http://bit.ly/1iw1mLQ. See also What's New http://bit.ly/1mAROQP, and watch the video New findmypast, old friends... A guide to recent changes. As Peter says in the LostCousins newsletter, 'whilst it took me a while to figure out how those differences could work to my advantage, it wasn't long before I'd broken down not one but TWO brick walls!'  #genealogy

These women support their families by sewing quilts and jackets, knitting sweaters and sportswear, etc. I supported them via the non-profit organisation Kiva. Our team is 'Genealogists for Families' & our blog is http://genfamilies.blogspot.com/. Please join us!

Are you coming to the  Australasian Congress on Genealogy and Heraldry (Canberra, 2015)? The program & speaker profiles are now online. This will be my tenth Congress, and a good excuse to spend some 'tourist time' in the area. #genealogy
