Research Notes 2017-5-8

From ResearchBUZZ: The Georgia Archives have added Confederate Muster Rolls to its online archives. “The majority of the company muster rolls in this series are from military organizations created by the State of Georgia during the Civil War for service within the state. These military organizations include the Georgia Army (1861), the Georgia State Guards (August 1863-February 1864), and the Georgia State Line (1862-1865). The Georgia Militia is referred to as Georgia State Troops. Some units were later turned over to Confederate service. There are also nearly 250 muster rolls from Georgia Volunteer Infantry.”


MyHeritage has discounted their DNA kit for Mothers Day. The reduced price is $69 and can be ordered at MyHeritage’s Mothers Day Special.


Maureen Taylor has a fascinating article describing the clues you can find in old photo postcards. You’ll find it on her Photo Detective blog.

Dropbox Paper note

Are you a Dropbox user? If so, you might find their new Paper app quite useful. With Paper you can easily create notes and lists, add photos and even embed video and audio files. Even better, you can easily collaborate with other Dropbox users. All you need is their Dropbox ID. This is a great way to share research notes or even organize family events.

Dropbox is an online file storage platform. It offers affordable off-site storage at $99/year for 1,000GB of storage. Once your account is set up, you can see and manage your Dropbox files right in your desktop’s file manager. The Paper app is free and available for both iOS and Android devices. It’s also accessible online using your browser.

This example shows a note with photo created in Paper’s iPhone app.
