Highlights from news stories and blog posts I have read in the past week that deal with my overlapping interests in Genealogy, History, Heritage, and Technology.
- At Genealogy Tip of the Day Michael John Neill reminds us that we have to pay attention to what the document states, and doesn't state. Owning Land Does Not Equate to Residence.
