GenealogyBank: 17 million records added

While Ol' Myrt here plays catch up, news from our friends at includes info that adding 61 newspapers from 31 states brings 17 million additional family history records to their valuable collection. There is also info on a 30% off deal if I reactivate my membership before 8 December 2010. (Not sure if that is available across the board to anyone wishing to reup or initiate membership for the first time.)

"GenealogyBank is the largest online newspaper archive for family history research. We now feature over 4,500 newspapers - an estimated one billion names from 1690 to the present day."

Happy family tree climbing!
