ARCHIVED: Mondays with Myrt - 14 Nov 2016



DearREADERS,
We honored +Patricia Kuhn 's father George O'Donnell who served during WWII in the US Army Air Corps Signal Corps as a radio operator. +Hilary Gadsby explored the new GRO (General Record Office) Index for England and Wales as reported in her Worldwide Genealogy Blog post titled "Discovering Missing or Elusive Ancestors and Siblings with new Indexes" where we are now able to search including the mother's maiden name. This ability to triangulate makes it much easier to find public vital records. BRAVO ladies for sharing this morning.

+Randy Seaver  reported ordering his first record through the new GRO index here: http://www.geneamusings.com/2016/11/order-england-and-wales-civil-registry.html
and he recommends "If you have England/UK ancestry, you should be receiving the LostCousins Newsletter -- see http://lostcousins.com/newsletters2/nov16news.htm
