Genealogy news from great websites


MyHeritage’s collection of birth records includes 115 collections containing a total of 1,144,541,613 individual records from all over the world. Some of the collections contain indexes which help you find out where the birth record is located, while others contain the actual image of the record. Guess what!!! Free access to these through April 24th.

Geoff Rasmussen  had a big announcement on Friday. That was the day of Legacy Family Tree Webinars 1,500th webinar! That’s a lot of education. Think about subscribing so you have access to all of them and the accompanying syllabus material. This includes this month’s 24-hour marathon. It was actually 26 hours with Terri Flack and I doing the last two added hours. Subscribe here via my own affiliate link http://legacy.familytreewebinars.com/?aid=1739

Every Friday, Findmypast releases new and additional records and collections. Their blog is a great place to keep informed: https://www.findmypast.com/blog/new

Ancestry’s frequently updated list of “Recently Added and Updated Collections” is something I frequently check. One caught my eye: Cook County, Illinois, U.S., Obituaries, 1970-1990. “This collection includes index and images of obituaries from various newspapers in southern Cook County, Illinois, as well as Hammond, Indiana. Cook County, Illinois, U.S., Obituaries, 1970-1990” I did find a few possibilities in this. https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/62018/
