As December begins, George suggests a place to shop for genealogy gifts: The Ancestry Store (theancestrystore.com), and he announces the new 1851 and 1861 Scotland census databases. George also mentions the new test for U.S. citizenship. The mailbag brings information about newspaper projects (www.library.uiuc.edu/inp and www.neh.gov/projects/usnp.html), and a question about a Texas application for a mortuary warrant. Drew interviews Deborah Abbott about collateral lines research, slaveholder records, and things not to be overlooked on the U.S. census. Finally, Drew thanks a listener for visiting the grave of Drew's uncle and sending along photos from the U.S. military cemetery near Cambridge, England.
