Across My Desk: Thanks, Joy.
In early July, the IGG and, shortly afterward, the GGG website began blocking requests that were coming from Steve Morse's free One-Step website (http://www.stevemorse.org/ ). Users could no longer take advantage of the added value that Steve's One-Step site gave to those websites' data, such as easily finding the bride's record that corresponds to a groom's record. Only the death, grooms, and brides indexes were being blocked.
Steve learned that, as of yesterday, the IGG website has stopped blocking him. The GGG website is still doing so, but he expects that they will remove the blockage shortly.
