FamilyTreeNow.com - 100% Free Family Tree and Genealogy Research

FamilyTreeNow.com - 100% Free Family Tree and Genealogy Research

Dick Eastman has a thing or two to say about this site!  Read his review online or in your e-mail.  Or maybe you've seen a blurb on Facebook?  Another new site to try!

Here is what you need to know before latching onto a new website:  Who is running this website?  Who are these people?!   Somewhere, on the home page of the new web site, are tabs or buttons or so, or links.  Look for one that says ABOUT US. 

Read the blogs and newsletters, look for reviews, read the reviews.

I hope this site prospers; it looks as if the good things they are offering will be helpful.  Digital books are handy!  And dandy!  I plan to search some, right now!

Genealogical Journal by Daniel M. Hogan (Paperback) - Lulu

Genealogical Journal by Daniel M. Hogan (Paperback) - Lulu

I found this an appealing idea for a gift for your favorite genealogist.  You can go to the local "get anything and everything" store and buy a blank notebook for less but I've learned over the years that having a "dedicated" place and time to do your genealogy is a super way to achieve success in researching your family.

Well, do you have a "dedicated" research notebook for each ancestral line you are following? Toting a notebook around (yes, I'm discussing a physical paper product, here), is occasionally easier to deal with on a research trip than a virtual type.

It's at least worth trying.  Thoughts?
