For those of you who may have missed the news, this past July Wholly Genes Blog announced that official support for The Master Genealogist will cease at the end of this year.
The popular genealogy computer program has been around for about 25 years, and has often let the way with features emulated by other products.
You can read the announcement and find what unofficial support will continue at: Wholly Genes Newsletter, 29 July 2014, Issue 2014-5

James Tanner, writing in his blog Genealogy’s Star, gives us some thoughts on common genealogy myths that may exist in our family lore. Some may be familiar to you, but it is worth a read regardless because James’ comments are both revealing and instructive.

Here’s a site that doesn’t have much to do with genealogy, but I couldn’t resist…call it a guilty pleasure. It’s The Nostalgia Machine.
Simply pick a year (between 1960 and 2003) and then select any of the songs that appear. The more modern that song, the greater the likelihood you will see a video to accompany the music. It might be fun for you to hear some of those high school or college era songs again.
