Genealogy's Star: Speculations on RootsTech 2013

Genealogy's Star: Speculations on RootsTech 2013 | Rhit Genealogie | Scoop.it

I am wondering if RootsTech 2013 will be used by genealogy software developers, including FamilySearch.org to make some major or perhaps incremental announcements? FamilySearch.org for one, is overdue for changes to the Family Tree program. The "Release Notes" online date back to 15 November 2012 and the Reference Manual has had no update since 3 January 2013.

New kid on the block. As we have explained before, a faire-part is an announcement of a marriage, a death, or a birth and at the same time an invitation to the wedding, funeral service or baptism celebrating or bemoaning the event. They were popular -- primarily among the well-to-do --during the second half of the nineteenth century and early twentieth century.

A Darker Side of Genealogy

A Darker Side of Genealogy | Rhit Genealogie | Scoop.it

I have tried multiple times over the last couple days to get this to post. My whole autosave drafts have disappeared. The backups were missing too. The page would not save, when I tried to publish it, there would be an error and all of my changes wouldn’t save but disappear. I’m tenacious though and I have proven to be successful, regards of the headaches I’ve experienced in trying to publish this. I have written and rewritten this post several times, only I’m too stupid to quit or give up or otherwise throw in the towel. It’s my blog and if I want to post pictures of ghosts and postmortem people, then I will. That being said, enjoy. You can click on each of the pictures to view a larger version of them.

At the Genco 2012 forum, GenVerrE, (the acronym is for Généalogie des Verreiers d'Europe) was a significant and pretty interesting presence. They had a large stand, laden with their many publications, and one of their members, Benoît Painchart, gave the talk "Les gentilhommes-verriers, entre légendes et héritages culturels".

The French Genealogy Blog: In the Archives diplomatiques - Les Actes Des Chancelleries | Rhit Genealogie | Scoop.it

A couple of years ago, we wrote about the Archives diplomatiques outside Paris at La Courneuve. At that time, they had just opened their new site and things were a bit raw, to say the least. Much has improved since then and we have been spending more time there. We report here on one of their collections that is most interesting to genealogists.

Genco 2012 - A Local Genealogy Get Together

Genco 2012 - A Local Genealogy Get Together | Rhit Genealogie | Scoop.it

We recently had the opportunity to attend a local genealogy gathering, in Brive-la-Gaillarde, capital of Corrèze. At such a gathering, or forum de généalogie, as is the term here, representatives of genealogy cercles, or associations, set up stands in a hall or garden and offer to help anyone researching in their department. A couple of years ago (Heavens! Have we really been writing this blog so long?) we wrote of such a forum at the national level in Paris, Géné@2010.
