National Archives Wiki

Speaking of wikis… and speaking of the National Archives… The National Archives has started a wiki “for researchers, educators, genealogists, and Archives staff to share information and knowledge about the records of the National Archives and about their research.” Their wiki is located at:

http://www.ourarchives.wikispaces.net

Ancestry.com Wiki

Not to be outdone, Ancestry.com has launched their own wiki. This is one of the many NGS conference news items I’m trying to get to. Blame David Rencher. His NGS session inspired my evidence management series, which has kept me busy. But I digress…

In its wiki, Ancestry.com has released two powerhouse genealogy references that together list for over $100: The Red Book and The Source

Wow! The only thing better would be if they were free.

Oh! Wait! The wiki is free! Check it out at:

  1. More "stuff" to read,when do I have time? But I'll be checking them out. It's always good to see references to what other genealogists are reading.
