Weekly Genealogy Picks

Weekly Genealogy Picks -- September 26th to October 2nd
from genealogy blogs, newspaper articles and elsewhere
 [being posted a little bit later on Sunday than usual.]
  • Locally, both the St. Louis City Mayor and the St. Louis County Executive seem to be in favor of merging the two governments, reconciling what is known locally as The Great Divorce of 1876.  If it were put to a vote, and passed, it would not only probably be great for St. Louis in general, but make things easier for genealogists, since City/County government records would be reunited for the first time in over a century.
Press Releases
(In some cases multiple blogs have posted these press releases, but I have chosen one representative.)

LexisNexis' US Serial Set is available at NARA research facilities - (DearMyrtle)

Blogging/Social Networking/Technology

Tamura Jones at Modern Software Experience illustrates the Twitter Redesign

Other Weekly/Monthly Lists
The genealogy bloggers below provide their selections for the week - many different from my own. 
Amanuensis Monday: September 27th participants
[Amanuensis Monday is a weekly blogging theme I began in February of 2009, where participants transcribe letters, audio, and other documents.  Why I do this.]

If you participated, but don't appear on this list, please, let me know.
