Research Notes 2019-11-18

Research Notes masthead

FamilySearch is celebrating their 125th anniversary. It began as the Gelealogical Society of Utah in 1894. There is an impressive history showing how the society became the genealogical powerhouse it is today. The timeline below gives you an idea on how it all developed.


If you would like a copy of the free WWI Genealogy Guide provided by the Doughboy Foundation and the U.S. World War One Centennial Commission, you will find it on their website at .

The Southeast Branch Library and St. Augustine Genealogical Society are offering a WWI Genealogy Research Group beginning in January 2020. This study group will meet the first Tuesday of the month from 12:30pm to 2:00pm in the library’s genealogy section at the big table. Debra Dudek’s WWI Genealogy Guide will be the primary source, but not the only one. This group is open to anyone interested in learning about their WWI ancestors. For more information, contact Denise Olson at


Are you looking for an easy and affordable way to share the stories your research discovers? If so, take a look at Tumblr. It’s part blog, part scrapbook and part social network. In addition to text, you can also include photos, graphics, videos, audio and links to other online content.

Tumblr recently added a chat feature making it easy to keep in touch with friends and family. Even better . . . since Tumblr is both fun and affordable, it is likely that the younger members of your family already have their own Tumblr blog.

To learn more and get started, check out the Tumblr Help Center.

This is a story posted at my Creekside Tales Tumblr blog.


REMINDER . . . Our next meeting isn’t a meeting at all. It is our annual Christmas luncheon. This year we plan to enjoy the food and atmosphere at Beaches on Vilano Beach. Our board is working out all the details and will update you once it is complete.
