A Software Announcement and a Great Article!

 Just a few days ago, MyHeritage.com announced it was purchasing the genealogy software Legacy Family Tree. MyHeritage has been slowly growing in the shadow of the giants, Ancestry and FamilySearch. They have a heavy European emphasis and more than 91 million members. Legacy, for years a top contender in PC genealogy software, is widely respected for the quality of its product and its tech support. It also has a well-used webinar platform.

For those of you PC owners looking to update your genealogy software and save money in the process, Legacy Family Tree is offering a substantial savings that will expire this Sunday, 13 August. You can get the Legacy 9 software and/or subscriptions to the webinars for half-price.

Please do not consider this as an endorsement of this product. We just want to make you aware of a good savings on a reliable product. For those who are interested, you can learn much more on the Legacy website: http://news.legacyfamilytree.com/legacy_news/2017/08/legacy-family-tree-has-a-new-home-with-myheritage.html .

(Thanks to Pat Stamm for alerting us to this special offer.)


With so many genealogists now using DNA testing to help them establish roots, it should not be surprising to learn of extraordinary finds. A recent story, published in the Washington Post, tells of an "Irish-American" woman who discovered an amazing incident in her father's past when she began doing DNA testing of her relatives. It's a great read and a wonderful example of how important it is to follow every clue to get to the truth.
