Often overlooked, but not without tremendous value for all genealogists, is the site named Linkpendium. If you’ve not yet visited the site, I think you will be pleasantly amazed at the constantly updated and organized lists of links created and maintained by Karen and Brian Leverich. If you think I’m kidding about this database keeping you busy for a lifetime, I’m not. There are 10,406,927 links for you to explore, so if you start right now, you may be done by the next century.
Ready, Set, Search!
Ancestry is celebrating 15 years of genealogy goodness with their 15 days of free access to selected databases on their site. For my readers who’ve been waiting for a chance like this, it’s finally arrived!
Beginning October1, 2011 and running through October 15th at midnight.
Each day of the 15 days you’ll check the site to see which database is available, as well as what prize is being awarded that day. (The first database is the Social Security Death Index; the first day prize is a 1 year Ancestry.com World Explorer Membership).
Fifteen Years: The People Behind Ancestry’s Success
I’m looking forward to seeing all of the faces and stories of those who’ve helped to make Ancestry.com a success. First up? Lou Szucs who has been an employee since 1996. Thank you Lou!
