I have just read over on the Ancestry Blog that Ancestry has added the ability to add audio to your family tree. I tried it out and it is the coolest thing! Maybe I can convince some of my family members to do it and record some audio clips! You have to go try it out.
In other genealogy news, I have two new acquisitions to my genealogy book collection.
- Evidence! Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian by Elizabeth Shown Mills
- The BCG Genealogical Standards Manual by the Board of Certified Genealogist
I got Mills’ book because I need to learn how to standardize my citations, and I got the BCG book b/c I do want to learn how to write good family histories and I like the examples it provides. I’ve added them to my LibraryThing catalog. I see that 228 people in LibraryThing have the Mills book and 112 have the BCG book. Cool.
Ta ta for now… I’m off to do more research on this McNair family.
