Can You Believe This?
While packing up Christmas decorations, I found and unpacked a box that had remained sealed from a move 18 months ago. In it I found a VHS tape in a hard black plastic case that I had, at one point some years ago, carefully labeled as 'Genealogy' . . . not too specific, but that's a separate issue. Now - imagine my surprise frustration that with all the tech in my home, I no longer have a VHS player. That will be easy to remedy, but it's a stark reminder that as formats change, we need to be mindful of all these things we preserve in various forms.

Let technology help you research, record, and share your story!
Introduction
Often referred to as 'Vital Records' in the United States or Civil Registrations in the U.K., Australia, and elsewhere, there is little dispute that Birth, Marriage, and Death records (BMDs or BDMs) serve as foundation documents for much of our family history research throughout the world.
 
In many (but not all) countries, family historians will look to census records to be able to view their ancestors as a family group.  This is where you can learn about other branches of the family and little-known details that are hard, if not impossible, to find elsewhere.
