From Our Members
Jacquie Beveridge informs us Thomas MacEntee’s latest ebook ($2.99) offers money saving tips for genealogy research. The book is The 15 Habits of Highly Frugal Genealogists and available through Amazon.  Also included at the end of the book are many ‘exclusive savings’ (MyHeritage= 35% off one-year Premium Plus account & data subscription; Legacy Family Tree Deluxe software = 15% off, Amazon savings on genealogy products, plus more vendor savings).

Merilee Mulvey introduces us to the term ‘library anxiety’. See if you have any of the symptoms – “oftentimes occurring in new genealogists entering a library for the first time in many years”. View the entire article at Ancestry.com’s blog, Don’t Suffer From Library Anxiety: How to Best Research in Libraries. It even provides a cure!

Pat Rongey suggests reading  Ancestry.com’s support article entitled “Why Are My Ancestry DNA Ethnicity Results Different than What I Expected.  A very informative, well written piece with accompanying video.
