Last night TSGS had a very nice meeting with a Boonville High School classmate becoming our newest member! This sun rise makes me think about genealogy and what is available for us today. The TV series back in the 1970's got many new genealogy researchers jumping into finding their "roots." Today we have had two TV series "Faces of America" on PBS & "Who Do You Think You Are?" on NBC that should increase the interest in family history for a whole new generation of genealogical researchers. Many, many genealogical books have been published along with microfilm & CD's. The Internet has the USGenWeb Project, Cemeteries Online, paid subscription services such as Ancestry.com & Heritage Quest. Libraries have so much more available for genealogists. Y-DNA is affordable and a great new tool to help piece together relationships when the paper trail is not as strong. Email, mailing lists, bulletin/query boards, MyFamily.com, Facebook, Blogs and more from the Internet makes it easier to find common researchers for your family and data including documents & photos.

We also have a great web sites: Cyndi's List, the Browning Genealogical Database and the Evansville City Cemeteries.

It is a wonderful time to wake up, see such a beautiful sun rise and to get going on your family history.
