Family Roots Publishing Co. Moving Sale Enters a New Phase

Since making the announcement of the move of Family Roots Publishing from Bountiful, Utah to Orting, Washington, FRPC has been running sales on selected books and CDs available at the Family Roots Publishing website. The discounts of the sale prices are substantial, running from 30 to 70%.

Friday, June 13, was the last day FRPC posted NEW sales for a bit, in that the energies of those involved have switched from the time-consuming task of inventorying and posting sale items to packing books, equipment, shelving, and househould goods for transfer to Orting. Shipping and updating of available sale items will continue on a daily basis as most of the move is made (with brief exceptions which will be announced as they happen). Posting of NEW sale items is expected to continue within the next week to three weeks, dependent on time available. Those items already posted will continue to ship as long as they haven’t sold out.

Note that this is an Internet sale only. Please don’t call FRPC to make purchases, as in most cases there is no one available at the phones to take calls. If urgent contact with FRPC is needed, please email Lmeitzler@gmail.com, which Leland has access to by mobile phone.

Following is a listing of the updated sale announcements made thus far. Check them out for some great deals!

Selected Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin & West Virginia Books 30-60% off During the FRPC Moving Sale – Limited Quantities

Note that occasionally FRPC employees have found that they have run out of items which were still posted as available. This has happened when FRPC didn’t get the items pulled down fast enough once the items ran out. When this happens, the customer’s credit card will be issued a refund for the items sold, but no longer available. This issue isn’t common, but has happened a number of times.

London & Northern Ireland Military Newspaper Editions from World War II to Debut On Stars and Stripes’ Online Archive

Stars-Stripes-170pw

Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 05, 2014 Stars and Stripes first launched its digital archive in 2008 with over 1.0 million newspaper pages spanning 1948 through 1999. Fittingly, the World War II editions will begin to become available on the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Originally established in London in 1942 for American military service members, the newspaper staff arrived on the Normandy beaches as part of the D-Day landing. Beginning June 6, editions from London (1942-1945) and Northern Ireland (1943-1945) will be available at Stars and Stripes Newspaper Archives, created in partnership with NewspaperArchive.com.

The newspaper followed the Allies’ success up from Africa and across Europe into Germany, where its European headquarters is now in Kaiserslautern. Over 30 different editions were produced during the World War II. The Africa and Mediterranean editions (including the invasion of Italy) are planned for release in September 2014, followed by the editions through the end of the war, which are expected to release in December, to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge.

Ancestry.com Focuses on Core Offerings

I was not at all surprised when Ancestry.com made their announcement last week that they were “retiring” a number of their services, specifically MyFamily, MyCanvas, Genealogy.com, Mundia and the Y-DNA and mtDNA tests. Honestly, I’m surprised that it took them this long on a number of them. The announcement was made over a week ago, but I am just now getting around to blogging about it, having been distracted by our move from Utah to Washington State. Following is their announcement:

We’re proud of the variety of products we’ve created over the years that enable people to discover, preserve and share their family history. We recognize that there are a lot of ways that we, as a company, can make family history easier, more accessible and more fun for people all over the world. And we’re continually innovating to make it a reality.

We’re always looking to focus our efforts in a way that provide the most impact, while also delivering the best service and best product experience to users. To that end, we’ve decided to retire some of our services: MyFamily, MyCanvas, Genealogy.com, Mundia and the Y-DNA and mtDNA tests.

Starting September 5, 2014, these services will no longer be available to access. Genealogy.com is the exception to the rule, and will continue in a slightly different form. If you are an active member or subscriber to one of these services, you will be contacted directly with details of how to transition the information you’ve created using these services.

We know these services have provided value to you. We think they’re pretty cool too, which is why this wasn’t an easy decision for us to make. In the end, it came down to priorities and we think our core offerings are a great place to spend our time and resources.

So here’s to revolutionizing family history, focusing on providing the best product experience we can offer and to the limitless possibilities that lie before us.

The Council for the Advancement of Forensic Genealogy to Hold Fourth Annual Forensic Genealogy Institute on March 26-28, 2015

The following is from the Council for the Advancement of Forensic Genealogy (CAFG):

The 2015 FGI Offers Two Brand-New, Cutting-Edge Courses for Forensic Genealogists

Dallas, Texas – June 12, 2014 – The Council for the Advancement of Forensic Genealogy (CAFG) announced today that the fourth annual Forensic Genealogy Institute (FGI) will be held March 26-28, 2015, at the Wyndham Love Field Hotel in Dallas, Texas. The 2015 FGI features two brand-new, concurrent, 20-hour courses: “Forensic Genealogy Master Practicum” and “Advanced Genetic Genealogy and Unknown-Parentage Cases.”

“FGI offers attendees one-of-a-kind education in forensic genealogy and access to expert forensic genealogists who can answer questions and act as mentors,” said Leslie Brinkley Lawson, CAFG President. “We are excited to offer FGI 2015 participants the opportunity to participate in an unprecedented forensic-genealogy practicum or to gain experience in cutting-edge genetic genealogical research.”

“Forensic Genealogy Master Practicum”
The “Forensic Genealogy Master Practicum” offers six interactive modules that focus on the practical application of forensic skills. Each module is team taught by a pair of experienced professional genealogists. Students will receive hands-on experience in the following areas:

  • Researching various types of forensic cases
  • Working with clients – interviews, contracts, and other
  • Writing forensic reports or affidavits (students will write three reports)
  • Participating in or observing a mock trial to defend a forensic report

The Master Practicum allows students to put forensic skills to work immediately in a review- and discussion-based classroom environment, where they will work one-on-one with fellow students and with instructors.

“Advanced Genetic Genealogy and Unknown-Parentage Cases”
The “Advanced Genetic Genealogy and Unknown-Parentage Cases” course explores the application of DNA and traditional genealogical research to uncovering the genetic heritage of individuals with unknown parentage. Attendees will receive active experience in the following areas:

  • Developing custom DNA-testing plans
  • Analyzing the vast amount of data generated through DNA testing
  • Integrating multiple record types and/or DNA-test results to comprehensively address the research question
  • Navigating potential media exposure

“Genealogists who can use DNA to successfully address unknown-parentage cases are in great demand,” says course coordinator CeCe Moore. “This unique course offers in-depth instruction of the methodologies used by professional genetic genealogists.”

Each FGI 2015 course offers 20 hours of instruction over just three days, minimizing hotel costs and time away from families and jobs. The learning opportunities presented at FGI are created specifically for professional, practicing genealogists who specialize or seek to specialize in forensic genealogy.

Registration for the 2015 Forensic Genealogy Institute will open in summer 2014.

About CAFG
Established in 2011, the Council for the Advancement of Forensic Genealogy (CAFG) is a business league with a professional membership dedicated to the advancement of forensic genealogy, which is research, analysis, and reporting in cases with legal implications. CAFG promotes high standards of professional and ethical conduct, provides education and training opportunities, and assists in professional development though mentorship, full membership, credentialing, and awarding of fellowships.
