Putting our Hows in order - February 2020

Greetings from Salt Lake City, folks. I'm in the Family History Library, mecca to family historians. I wish I could say I was recovering from four days of RootsTech, but instead I'm recovering from the flu! Warning: this year's flu shot isn't as effective a shield as part years'. I started shivering...

Putting our Howse in order - December 2019

Happy new year, everybody. As I write this it's already January in most of the world. So this is going to be a relatively short newsletter. Prizewinner We actually had lots of entries for our prize draw for the 4-day pass to RootsTech at the end of next month. As promised, a week ago my wife picked ...

Re: How to obtain a BMD certificate for England/Wales

Update news: 1 - Full certificates now cost £11 each. 2 - For births before 100 years ago, and deaths before 50 years ago, you can obtain an "uncertificate" at a much reduced cost of £7 and the really good news is that they take only 3 days to arrive in your email inbox. Uncertificates are PDF copie...

Putting our House in order - November 2019

Happy thanksgiving for our American readers, and sorry to the Canadians whose feast I missed last month. I've decided to cut November short so that I can have some family time over the next few days. I might still do some genealogy, but I don't want the feeling of HAVING to write the newsletter hang...

Want to see a full House? Come to RootsTech Salt Lake City 2020

David.Kennerly.JPG I regularly attend genealogy events on both sides of the Atlantic and RootsTech is simply THE best. Not only is it the biggest but it is by far the best organized AND you have the Family History Library just yards away . . . .! As an Ambassador for RootsTech Salt Lake City 2020, ...

Putting our Howze in order - October 2019

Not only did we add another 1,600 people to our database, finishing very close to 160,000, but I went to two different genealogy events and came away with stories from both. The Circus comes to Town Early in the month, the Guild of One-Name Studi...

Putting our Hows in order - September 2019

Hello everyone. Difficult to believe that our year is 3/4 gone already. For most of our readers, the sun is getting lower in the sky every day. As I look out of my window here in Norfolk (England) the river is close to flood levels, the temperature is set to drop a few degrees in the next few hours ...

Putting our Howes in order - August 2019

Hello everyone. Happy new month! Our elves have been busy again. We added 1,000 people during August and finished with 156,256 people in our database. And, my sideboard has a little silverware on it from my yachting adventures this month at Wroxham, Horning, Breydon Water, Oulton and Barton on the N...
