Week in Review

Below are some noteworthy news stories and blog posts I have read in the past week that deal with my overlapping interests in Genealogy, History, Heritage, and Technology.
  •  "Besides ending nearly 3,000 lives, destroying planes and reducing buildings to tons of rubble and ash, the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks destroyed tens of thousands of records, irreplaceable historical documents and art." (full article) (hat/tip GenealogyBlog)
  • The granddaughter of author Shalom Aleichem (Solomon Rabinovich) recently turned 100.  She was interviewed by the New York PBS. (hat/tip: Jewcy)

Watch the full episode. See more Metrofocus.
  • A documentary about a guy, Jim Killeen, who Googled himself and then went all over the world meeting others with his name. (DNA testing was involved) (Video is 96 minutes)
