52 Weeks to Better Genealogy - Week 7

Investigate the FREE, newly redesigned
This is a wonderful collection of records which literally grows every day. Family Search has added newly digitized records numbering in the millions, since going to their newly formatted website last fall.  It pays to re-check those brickwalls, every month or so.  You never  know when a newly digitized immigration record (or other record, for me it was an immigration record) will ‘pop-up’ and shed new light on you brick wall.

Speaking of FAMILY SEARCH, be sure to mark your calendars for April 12, 2011.  The Brown County Genealogical Society is having its monthly program and meeting at the Brown County Public Library, and our speaker will be Mary Decker, from the Bloomington Family History Center, and she will be showing us some of the new features of and how to navigate the new site.
