We should plan to do one together. Is there a particular topic that would interest you? I don't know exactly how to use it, so maybe we should practice on each other first. Maybe do interviews with each other, not unlike the Between the Leaves episodes they do on Ancestry's Youtube channel. Let me know what you think ;)

FamilySearch:  They’re Here! FamilySearch Introduces Two New Mobile Apps.

We live in a mobile world. You should be able to connect with your ancestors wherever you are. FamilySearch has released two new mobile apps that will make it easy to do just that. With FamilySearch Tree and FamilySearch Memories you can add memories and sources of your relatives on the go. Everything you add will sync with FamilySearch.org, so information will be accessible from any device and will be preserved for future generations. Both apps are free.

FamilySearch Tree

FamilySearch Tree is a mobile companion to FamilySearch.org. This app makes it easy to add photos, stories, and audio recordings to ancestors in the tree. Adding or updating ancestor details like names, dates, and relationships is not currently available, but is coming soon.

* Browse your family branches and see portraits of relatives you’ve never seen.
* Discover facts, documents, stories, photos, and recordings about your ancestors.
* Easily add memories and records about your relatives.
* Preserve and share those old photos and documents that are hidden away in storage.
* Available for iOS 7+ and Android 2.3+

Last year the expo hall had "backblaze" sponsor a mini-session area where speakers would talk for 10 minutes on a variety of topics. They even had a time where anybody could sign up to speak on a topic. Great place to hang out while you eat!

I'll only be tuning into the web sessions but I'm excited for you! Have a great time!

Hey all,
Recently I made a tutorial on Source Citations. If you haven't seen it yet, definitely check it out.

I really enjoyed doing the how-to tutorial, and I'd like to do more. What kinds of how-to topics would you all like to see? What questions can I answer that would help you in your research? Let me know!

Cheers,
Heather

A New Look is Coming for the FamilySearch Research Wiki.

Here is some exciting news about the FamilySearch Research Wiki. Our Research Wiki site will receive a major upgrade later this year (2014). This future upgrade will provide some welcome improvements. For example, there will be more space on the web page to view enriched text and images.  There will also be increased editing capabilities for contributors and several other useful changes.

To accommodate this new look and to provide improved readability, the layout of many current wiki pages will go through some format changes.  FamilySearch and the Wiki Community are already working on new ways to restructure and display Research Wiki information that will make articles easier to read and use.

You can view some of the possible changes and give feedback by visiting the Testing: Wiki Usability wiki page. More page revisions and ideas will be posted in the coming months. Whether you are brand new to the research wiki or a seasoned user and contributor, come check out some of the new designs and let us know what you think.  We’d love to hear from you.

The FamilySearch Research Wiki is an online resource that links users to genealogy records and indexes, both online and at archives, for over 244 countries around the world. This collection of 79,000 wiki articles has been created by volunteers and experts in the genealogical community who have shared their knowledge and expertise to help you find your ancestors. Come check out our FamilySearch Research Wiki and see what you can learn. We think you will like what you see.

The key to determining relationships is count the Gs to the common ancestor. Share a grandparent? One G, so you're first cousins. Share a great-grandparent? 2 Gs, you're second cousins. If it's your great-grandparent but your cousin's grandparent, go with the person closest to the common ancestor, and since you're one generation different, you're first cousins, once removed.
