    Adoptees and others with unknown parentage can use DNA testing to find and connect with their biological families or to learn more about where their ancestors came from.

  • FamilySearch Affiliates—Treasure Troves for Family Historians Tue, 12 Feb 2019 21:20:07 +0000
    Neither Curt Witcher nor Sue Kaufman have spent their careers working in their first chosen professions—and now they both work in the same field, one that leads Witcher to quip at times that he “works with the dead.” Fascinated by biographies and history, Curt Witcher first planned to be an educator, teaching for a semester […]

  • Proposed Bill Would Force Many Arizonians to Pay $250 to Have Their DNA Added to a Database Fri, 22 Feb 2019 16:00:05 +0000
    This proposed legislation would be great for future genealogists if they can gain access to the database (which I doubt). However, there are huge security and privacy issues involved.

  • Preserving Documents Digitally Versus on Paper Alone Thu, 21 Feb 2019 17:35:28 +0000
    I frequently hear a genealogist say something like this: “Digital storage methods are dangerous and won’t last long. I am going to save everything on paper so it will last forever.” I strongly disagree. That is one of the fallacies that seem to float around forever. Professional archivists and data center managers all know better […]
