      LOST FACES - Old Photo Albums online

      Some of you know that I have a little corner of my website
      called "Lost Faces". LOST FACES is my collection of Family
      Photo Albums. One of my little hobbies is going to flea
      markets and garage sales. Whenever I spot one of those old
      Photo Albums from the 1800s with family pictures, I have to
      buy it! I can't bear the thought that the album and photos
      will be lost or destroyed. Even though they aren't my
      ancestors, and they can be very expensive, I can't walk away
      without it.

      I recently found three Civil War era brass bound photo album
      in an antique store. Maybe someone can spot an ancestor! The albumsy

      Odds 'n Ends

      Anybirthday.com is offline for good. Their server used to
      crash at times, but you could always get to their search
      form although you couldn't do a search. Now you can't even
      get to their search form -- you get a page-not-found error
      instead. And when you go to their partner site,
      locateme.com, you get a message saying that their domain
      registration has expired.

      That means that Steve Morse's one-step form which obtains
      its data from anybirthday.com no longer works. But the good
      news is that he has found another source for the birthday
      data and created a one-step form for it. You can find that
      one-step form in the Births and Deaths section of his
      homepage http://stevemorse.org/

      There are two links for birthday forms there -- one to the
      now-defunct anybirthday.com and the other that uses this new

      Last but not Least!

      I have a neat little spot on Olive Tree Genealogy that provides
      daily updates of new genealogy data put online. I just figured out
      how to do this automatically a few weeks ago and am so excited about
      it I want to share it with everyone. The records are FREE and they
      are updated every day. I think you'll find it helpful in your search
      for miscellaneous records like family bibles, old letters, funeral
      cards, and much much more.

      You can see the list, and click to view the full document, on any of
      my Genealogy Section pages such as Ships Passenger Lists at

      Scroll down a bit to "What's New in FREE Genealogy Records" The left
      side of the yellow box has free trials on Ancestry and
      Genealogy.com. The right side has the free Olive Tree documents.

      Bookmark the page and you can come back and check every few days to
      see what new records I've added to the collection.
