I found a new Tool. It is like a Pinterest for 'Whole WEB Pages'. You make lists of links that are important to you. I created a list of the WEB sites I use most often in my Irish Genealogy Research. See: http://urli.st/39m-Irish-Genealogy. You can join & share you lists at http://urli.st/

Before I traveled to Ireland in June, I over-layed the 1844 Ordnance Survey Map for Dromore, Tyrone, with present day maps. This allowed me to get directions to the lot   #s on the 1860 Griffith's Valuation. I now have present day pictures of the lot's leased by my Ancestors.

A 132 years of wandering comes to an end today. Heading off for a Sunday dinner with two 3rd and two 4th (McQuaid/Barrett) cousins in Tummery, Dromore, Tyrone, East Omagh, Ireland. Will also be stopping off in Blairgowrie, Scotland ancestral home of my Grandmother Agnes Lynch (Flynn)

What economic statistic would you use to compare your ancestor in 1940 to yourself today? If they rented it could be (annual housing cost) / (annual income)= % cost of income. Or if they owned (annual income) / (house value)= % income of value . Inflation has done a number on us. One of my Grandfathers that rented has a rent that's 13.1% of his income. Mine is 22%. The other Grand father, that owned had an income that was 64% of his house value. Mine is 30%. Not everything improves with age.

Does anyone know where to find a blank Excel, 1940 Census form? I have a PDF version, but it won't save to my computer if filled out. I can only print it.

Also, I keep getting a message saying "Could not find 1940census.archives.gov". Is the site down? Anyone else having problems?

Thinking of using Pinterest for Genealogy? It's easy to get people to talk when you show them a picture from their past. How do you plan on using Pinterest?
