  1. I have tried for 3 days to subscribe to the blog/newsletter and it just runs and wont go to a sign up page. Is it broken? I love what you are doing. I am the Co-Director of the Gooding County Museum and Research Center in Gooding Idaho. I am also the lead researcher.

  2. Thanks for posting. Just read your article yesterday about the school censuses in Family Chronicle. This was a resource I was previously unaware of so I appreciated the article 🙂
