Ancestry Reference Desk and Roots Tech 2013. It’s Follow Friday!

I’ve not been posting for a couple of weeks.  I’ve been traveling a lot.  I presented to about 1000 people at the Midwest Genealogy Center’s Ancestry Day and I’m now at Roots Tech 2013.

Also, I’ve been ramping up a new blog for Ancestry.com called Ancestry Reference Desk (http://www.ancestry-reference-desk.com)  My goal, is to create a teaching blog/site to help people who use Ancestry.com and Fold3 in libraries how to be more effective.  But the posts and other links we put up will apply to anyone.  Check it out and let me know what you think!

Here’s a few articles you may have missed lately:
