from genealogy blogs, newspaper articles and elsewhere
[being posted a little bit later on Sunday than usual.]
- Lawyer and Genealogist, James Tanner, at Genealogy's Star discusses the difference between copyright infringement and theft.
- Twenty Years ago, on October 3, 1990, Germany was reunified. A memorandum containing the telephone conversation between German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and US President George H. W. Bush was posted at the National Archive's Document of the Day.
- 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.
- While architectural history isn't genealogy, I've found many genealogists have interest in the towns our ancestors lived in, and how they have changed over the years. Locally, Vanishing St. Louis has an entry illustrating an architectural nightmare. How a neoclassical bank became an orange brick rectangle, as well as the ironic use the building is being used for today.
(In some cases multiple blogs have posted these press releases, but I have chosen one representative.)
