As the days count down toward the Federation of Genealogical Society's upcoming Boston conference, Drew and George announce that Paul Milner is a new co-leader for the National Genealogical Society's Britain and Ireland Forum (www.ngsgenealogy.org/forums/britainirelandforum.cfm), and that NGS is sponsoring a January 2007 research trip to Salt Lake City (www.ngsgenealogy.org/edutripsaltlake.cfm).  Following up on last week's episode regarding boxer Bob Fitzsimmons, a listener reminds the Guys about Find A Grave (www.findagrave.com).  George announces Liz Kerstens' new e-magazine Digital Genealogist (www.digitalgenealogist.com).  After George discusses tips for deciphering old documents (handwriting, abbreviations, and language), Drew alerts listeners to upcoming changes for RootsWeb mailing lists (lists.rootsweb.com) and to a new way to access the WorldCat database (worldcat.org).   George ends the episode by sharing ways to keep track of what census columns mean, using the census charts at Ancestry.com (www.ancestry.com/trees/charts/census.aspx).
