The Generous Genealogists site is up and running. You should go take a look by clicking on the picture below.
The genealogy editor of BellaOnline has posted a reminder that we need to be mindful that there are many alternative sources for finding information in a recent post: Genealogical Databases of a Different Type.
Tina Sansone said, “We also need to realize that only a very small portion of what is available to researchers is online. We still need to visit the archives, cemeteries, courthouses, libraries, genealogical societies, museums, churches and other places where genealogical data may be.”

Here’s what you will find:
• Records available are from the United States, Canada, the British Isles, Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
• A majority of the records contain information about persons who lived before 1930.
• Approximately 200 cameras are currently digitizing records in over 45 countries. Records have been filmed in over 110 countries, territories, and possessions.

A new website has been activated that will follow where RAOGK(Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness) went. Working with Dale Schneider, husband of RAOGK’s late founder, Bridgett Schneider, the group was led by Mark Rabideau who did the organizing and programming, take a look at www.generousgenealogists.com. There are already some volunteers listed and many more are needed. For both accuracy and privacy reasons, the original RAOGK’s volunteer database was not used, so if you were listed before, you need to sign up on the new site. If you weren’t listed before and can do a lookup near where you live, your are invited to sign up. If you are in need of a lookup, check out the growing database of volunteers.
To access the volunteer database or to sign up, go the www.generousgenealogists.com and click on Volunteers.

This is a place to refer those starting in genealogy and family tree building and sources for refresher courses for experienced genealogical researchers.
