George shares press releases about the renaming of MyFamily.com, Inc. as The Generations Network and about the new features of the Ancestry.com personal family trees. The mailbag brings mail from listeners whose ancestors are from "Whales", who use portable applications (from portableapps.com) stored on a USB flash drive, and who are interested in DNA testing and whether or not census index errors are caused by an OCR process. Drew follows up previous podcasts with information about his new Western Digital My Book external hard drive (used for backups) and about online phonebooks. George describes the surprise in discovering what an old photo is made of, and talks about how Christmas Day was spent. Finally, genealogist Jana Sloan Broglin returns for another interview by Drew.
