    What’s New in September

    The problems with the Google Newspaper Archive continue, but we still got a few newspaper death notice indexes from Monica.

    Added the Standard Atlas of 1905 and 1930 Plat Book to Morgan County, and the Morgan County sections from History of Cole, Moniteau, Morgan, Benton, Miller, Maries and Osage Counties, Missouri, Goodspeed Publishing Co., 1889.

    The Photograph Andrew County Tombstones (PACT) Project pages, including the obituaries, are no longer in a bunch of difference places. It’s going to be a bit of a shock for old users (we’ve already heard from a couple), but it is actually better once you get used to it. New users will wonder what all the fuss was about. 🙂

    Updated some Carter County cemeteries with photographs.

    Added the 1877, 1897 and 1930 plat map books for DeKalb . . . [Yes! There’s more!]

    What’s New in August

    It’s been a busy month! I wish I had a kewl prize to offer if you make it through the whole thing. 🙂

    Google Newspaper Archive: As you might know, Monica makes extensive use of the Google Newspaper Archive to index the death notices in the old newspapers for us. A few weeks ago, she started having problems with it and it’s become pretty much unusable at this point. There’s a discussion thread about it in the Google forums — and it’s not just her having issues. While it doesn’t appear anyone with any clout from Google is weighing-in, we hope you will. Interesting that the comments indicate it’s genealogy researchers who are using that archive, eh?

    Facebook Changes: Facebook recently made a change that no longer allows for automatic posting of blog posts to the Facebook page. It’s still possible to add the posts to . . . [Yes! There’s more!]
