Here is the link: https://www.apgen.org/conferences/index.html.

WHY ATTEND THE PMC?
The Professional Management Conference is the one conference dedicated to the needs of professional genealogists, providing education on business topics as well as advanced genealogical education on unique record sets, methodology, DNA, and more. The conference offers three tracks over three days with classes, workshops, poster sessions, and discussion groups–all conveniently located in the conference hotel, the DoubleTree by Hilton-Crystal City, Arlington, VA.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?
Thirty-eight presentations, six poster sessions, and four discussion groups will educate and inspire you on a wide range of topics essential for professional development and success.

Experienced professionals appreciate this opportunity to take the time for investing in themselves and re-connecting with colleagues, while new professionals can learn how to set themselves up for success and make valuable connections.

Here is what some attendees said about last year’s conference:

“A smorgasbord of education, networking, camaraderie, and fun for every level of Professional Genealogist – all bundled with some really awesome door prizes!” –Sharon Miller

“At the 2016 PMC in Fort Wayne, every time I turned around there were another hal–dozen people I wanted to talk to!” – Harold Henderson, CG

“The 2016 APG PMC was the best I’ve attended. I had the opportunity to learn from colleagues about marketing, as well as finding missing people and DNA. And the networking opportunities were wonderful as well. I look forward to seeing you all in 2017.” – Leslie Brinkley Lawson, Forensic Genealogist Credentialed(SM)

Group Cleans Up an Old Texas Cemetery

The following was posted March 25, 2017 at the Longview News-Journal website.

A group of volunteers met Saturday near Easton to clean up a cemetery dating back to the 1800s and that has fallen into disrepair.

Jeanne Collins, board member of the Gregg County Historical Commission and chairwoman of the commission’s Cemetery Preservation Committee, organized the cleanup in hopes of preserving history and learning about the people buried there.

“It’s important for the whole historical preservation of our society that we maintain cemeteries,” Collins said. “It’s history; it’s the state of Texas. These represent the genealogy of people that used to live in this area.”

Camden Cemetery is tucked away in the woods near Easton, where the former community of Camden, otherwise known as Walling’s Ferry, used to be.

MyHeritage Launches “Photo Discoveries”

NOTE: If you wish to order the bundle of the Full Subscription to MyHeritage & a DNA test for $199, Click on this link. The links below, as well as the link within the illustration just go to MyHeritage, and DO NOT include the special offer. I say this, because I’ve found that one of my readers was very confused, attempting to order the special offer directly from the MyHeritage blog, which these links go to. The offer is good through February 21, 2017.

The following news release is from MyHeritage:

Exclusive feature delights users with photographs of their ancestors and relatives, added to their family tree in one click

TEL AVIV, Israel & LEHI, Utah, February 10, 2017MyHeritage, the leading international family history and DNA company, announced today the launch of Photo Discoveries, an innovative feature which transforms family trees by automatically adding matching historical photos. A Photo Discovery provides users with a set of photographs of ancestors and relatives they may have never seen before, originating in family trees contributed by others. Users can add the photographs to the matching profiles in their family tree, in a single click.

Layered on top of MyHeritage’s highly accurate Smart Matching™ technology, which locates matching profiles in other family trees, and Instant Discoveries™, which enable users to add entire branches to their family tree in just a few clicks, Photo Discoveries identifies the profiles that have no photographs in the user’s family tree and provides photographs of these individuals from matching profiles on other family trees.

Users can add up to ten photographs per Photo Discovery, reject specific ones they do not wish to receive, and apply Photo Discoveries as many times as they would like. The photographs are then copied over to the associated profiles, preserving all useful metadata such as people tags, dates and place names.

“At MyHeritage we’re constantly brainstorming innovative new ways to make our industry-leading matching technologies even better,” said MyHeritage Founder and CEO Gilad Japhet. “Receiving a never-seen-before photograph of an ancestor is a delightful emotional experience, and one that we would like our users to enjoy as often as possible. Photo Discoveries deliver this and fulfill the promise of collaborative genealogy in a slick and gratifying one-click experience.”

Viewing Photo Discoveries in thumbnail form is free. Applying Photo Discoveries to one’s family tree requires a PremiumPlus or Complete subscription on MyHeritage.

ArkivDigital to Post Millions of Swedish Aerial Photographs

I just got a note from my friend, Kathy Meade. She alerted me to the fact that ArkivDigital is about to most a HUGE collection of Swedish aerial photographs at their website. The following excerpt is from the ArkivDigital blog:

ArkivDigital has acquired several million aerial photos from Svenska Aero-Bilder AB. These will now be digitized and added to ArkivDigital’s online archive. These images will complement the church books, estate inventories, military documents, court books and other archival records that currently exist in ArkivDigital.

“Our goal is to continually add new material and create new services for our customers to help them in their research. These images will complement other records in our archives such as the images of the church records.

Through this acquisition, we will have millions of aerial photographs of farms, cottages, villas, petrol stations and much more from the 1950’s to the present day from all over Sweden,” said the company’s CEO, Mikael Karlsson.

German Immigrants in American Church Records – Vol. 19: Missouri (excluding St. Louis County) – Now Shipping


Roger P. Minert, PhD, AG and a team of researchers at BYU are currently involved in a project wherein they read and extract German-American vital records from historic local church vital records. These church records often pinpoint German origins in the “old country.” Places and dates of birth, marriage, and previous residence in Germany are commonly found in these records. Dr. Minert estimates that over 65 percent of historic local church records give an immigrant’s exact place of birth. Entries found in the volumes include people born in Switzerland.

The first 18 volumes of this ongoing series were published by Lewis Rohrbach of Picton Press. Following his death, Family Roots Publishing contracted with Dr. Minert to continue publication of the series – starting with Volume 19, which deals with Missouri church vital records. The full series could reach 40 volumes given enough time.

Volume 19 includes historic vital records that include German places of origin – all from Missouri churches. The churches are from the following Missouri counties:
• Audrain Co.
• Bates Co.
• Benton Co.
• Callaway Co.
• Clark Co.
• Cole Co.
• Cooper Co.
• Cape Girardeau
• Franklin Co.
• Gasconade Co.
• Jackson Co.
• Jefferson Co.
• Lewis Co.
• Lincoln Co.
• Marion Co.
• Moniteau Co.
• Monroe Co.
• Morgan Co.
• Perry Co.
• Pettis Co.
• St. Charles Co.
• St. Clair Co.
• St. Francois Co.
• Warren Co.
• Wayne Co.

Typical entries from the St. Johannis Evangelical Church, of Berger, Franklin Co., Missouri – as follows:
Elisabeth Jacke b. Niderwil, Zofingen, Switzerland 29 March 1829; d. Berger, MO 29 Dec 1894; bur. Berger 31 Dec 1894; m. – – Lauer. Ref: Deaths 1894.

Carl Heinrich Ludwig Bruening b. Haarburg, Sachsen (province) 7 Aug 1827; d. Berger, MO 15 Jan 1895. Ref: Deaths 1895.

Johanne Louise Horstmann b. Brockhagen, Westfalen 12 Oct 1837; d. Berger, MO 1895, age 57-7-12; m. 1869, Karl Kautz. Ref: Deaths 1895.

This hard-bound volume has 761 pages, 8,863 extracted records from 68 churches, an every-name index, and is printed on high-quality acid-free paper. ISBN 978-1-62859-093-7; Item #FR0653; $119.95 (plus $8 p&h). Standing Order customers may take a 15% discount, making their cost for this volume $101.96 + $8 p&h and may cancel at any time. Standing Order cost will not exceed $101.96 + $8 p&h per volume, but may be less. Contact me at Lmeitzler@gmail.com if you wish a standing-order.
