From My Email Box - "Links & Other News!"


Ohio Valley SAR Chapter member John Van Zandt sent me this info: "This email came to me from the Mississippi Society President on 7-13-2010." Hopefully by this time next year, you will be able to view SAR applications on Ancestry.com. The SAR has signed a contract with Ancestry which provides that Ancestry will digitize and index ALL SAR applications, and will post on their website those applications that were approved through 1970. - Joseph W. Dooley, NSSAR Genealogist General

This is a neat photo gallery that Don Counts forwarded to me: Captured: America in Color from 1939-1943 – Plog Photo Blog... These images (70), by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations. The photographs are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in a 2006 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color. This is on the DenverPost.com site.

Virginia L. Aldridge sent this via the invander@rootsweb.com email list: Subject: Re: [INVANDER] Browning Funeral Home Records [Her message was in response to people posting that they could not get the Browning Online Genealogical Database to upload.] "I had a similar experience recently. I believe they might have changed the name for the web page, as when I did a Google search I had no trouble locating it. Here is the link I put on my Resources Online page: http://browning.evpl.org/ "

This from TSGS Program Chair Becky West: "Remind everyone that starting at our 14 Sep 2010 meeting, we will begin the meetings at 7:00 PM this is one half hour earlier than it used to be... this is the new time as voted into practice by the TSGS members."

Deborah Hull sent this via the MyFamily.com site - Our Breckinridge, Hancock and Ohio County Cousins: "Found this at Access Genealogy." http://www.accessgenealogy.com/worldwar/kentucky/breckinridge.htm
