New Forum

I have looked all over and haven’t found a good ancestry/genealogy forum. There are places like up here that have groups and you can find people on other social networks that mention or talk about the topic, however there aren’t any places like a forum where you can ask question and share things better.

So I have just created a forum where you can do that. It’s new and you don’t have to be a member to post right now. Please check out the forum. http://tracingancestryroots.forumotion.com/

We all know how wonderful Family Search is when aiding us with our genealogy research. Now I think it will get even better.
FamilySearch.org has begun indexing obituaries. This is great news in the research world! There is so much information that can be found in an obit that cannot be found in a death record. For example: a photo. The chances that a photo is included is high. Or if you had not found any siblings for your ancestor, but find the obit, most likely his/her siblings are included in the obituary. Also, there could possibly be a place of origin for the ancestor in the obit that was not in other records previously researched.
Please visit the site and go explore! I know I will.
