Highlight's This Week

Dick Eastman announced on his blog EOGN
“ is extending its relationship with NBC for a second season of the TV series “Who Do You Think You Are?” that features celebrities discovering their family history. The company has signed a new contract with NBC that calls for it to sponsor the program and to provide marketing and research.”
Is everyone else doing the happy dance???

Another Eastman blog announcement told us of the cemetery tragedy in KY.
This is simply heartbreaking!

The California Census of 1852 [the Gold-Rush years!] is now online according to’s blog!

Amy Coffin of We Tree Genealogy Blog  is celebrating wedding Anniversary 2008, 2009 and 2010 this week! This is awesome! And a great story!!!

Thanks to Megan Smolenyak for pointing out Woman Says Quaker Oats Led To Longevity  
 I just adored this story! This 100 year old ate Quaker Oats every day of her life! [And she’s a certified genealogist too!]

Jean-Yves Baxter’s Genealogy Blog brings us another great story on a WWII war heroine’s recent death and burial plans. 

The Genealogy Wise reminded us that genealogy can be found everywhere!

Thanks for another great Dick Eastman post on his EOGN  newsletter Using Your Mothers Maiden name for “Security”. I’d often felt this wasn’t secure, since ANYONE could uncover that little fact! Thanks Dick for confirming what I already believed!

It's been a great week of genealogy news and articles!!!

I'm so lookingforward to this upcoming week!!!
