Remember – this is an advance look at the list. Some of these titles are going live right now and some will not be added for months.

We want you to know what our plans are.

I usually hear about the new newspaper titles going live on GenealogyBank three times a month. I was posting a summary of the new content at the end of each month, but now I will post these new titles and their dates of coverage as soon as I get the word that they are being added.

Thousands of newspapers are also being considered for addition to GenealogyBank. We continue to evaluate and add more titles that are not on this list.

As soon as I know which titles are going live or have been added to the “Upcoming Titles” list – I will post the list to our blog. This way you will know which titles have been added to GenealogyBank and which titles are on the Upcoming Titles list.

Tim Russert, 1950 – 2008

On Father’s Day weekend it gives us pause to learn of the passing of Tim Russert.

Deeply involved with his family as well as his life’s work he wrote about fathers and about his heritage.

His easy manor and gift for telling stories always made us wonder – is there more that we can do to keep the family ties strong; communication ongoing and keeping everyone in touch?

Listen to his narration of an excerpt from his book Big Russ and Me, a Father’s Day tribute to his Dad. Click Here.

He will be missed.

Make the call – keep in touch – family.
