However, just like you, here at, we are always looking to add more names to our family tree—as well as new features to help you find who you’re looking for.

    printed and bound keepsakes for your family with just a click-click here and a click-click there.

Two more chapters will be available in the next week or so. They will cover:

  1. BRAVO! A great use of technology. Now one can curl up with the book AND keep on top of the latest developments in .pdf format.

    See also my most recent blog entry that reads in part:

    A VERY GOOD idea has come to light through the 24/7 Family History Circle blog at

    The idea is to provide “supplemental chapters” in .pdf format to hard copy books sold.

    One of “The Genealogy Guys”, George G. Morgan wrote The Official Guide to, an essential resource if you’d like to get the most out of your membership. George has a way of explaining things that make the process “doable” for his readers.

    But the trouble, in this day and age with printed text is that as technology advances, books become outdated.

    Ancestry has come up with a brilliant solution by publishing addendums in .pdf format.
