In this episode:

  • George notes that it is Black History Month, and points out that the New England Historic Genealogical Society has a website called AfricanAmericanAncestors.org.
  • George shares the information that MyHeritage.com has acquired the Germany-based OSN Group, which includes such family sites as Verwandt.de, Moikrewni.pl, and Dynastree.com.
  • The Michigan Genealogical Council updates the Guys on the Michigan governor's appointments to the Michigan Center for Innovation and Reinvention Board (which will advise the governor regarding the Michigan Library and Historical Center).
  • Beverly asks about options for genealogy home-study courses.
  • Teri asks where to get tabbed dividers for full-page sheet protectors, and whether it's ok to bring up a topic that was previously discussed on a Genealogy Guys Podcast from some time ago.  (For the tabbed dividers, George suggests looking at Light Impressions.)
  • Mitchell asks how best to document variants in surnames in his genealogy software.
  • Tina asks about unreadable census images from the 1860 census on Ancestry.com.

  • Jim discusses his frustrations in locating information about ancestor David Barnhart.
  • Drew interviews Dr. John Philip Colletta and learns a great deal about Federal court records.
