Just prior to their trip to Chicago for the National Genalogical
Society conference (www.ngsgenealogy.org), George tells Drew about
the great time he had at the Ontario (Canada) Genealogical Society
conference, and George reviews the book Genealogy, Geography, and Maps
(written by Althea Douglas and available from www.ogs.on.ca).
George also reviews Frank Smith's A Genealogical Gazetteer of England,
published by Genealogical Publishing Co.
(www.genealogical.com). Next is one more reminder of the 2006
Genealogy Seminar at Sea (www.genealogycruise2006.com), and news
about new Canadian data at MyFamily.com's new Canadian site
(ancestry.ca). Drew talks about searching for genealogy data
using Ask.com's new blog search tool (www.ask.com), compares
The Red Book to
The Source, and clarifies
the distinction between original/derivative documents,
primary/secondary information, and direct/indirect evidence.
