Claire tells us we should bear with her. Since the postage stamp had its increase it has certainly made some changes in her mailing habits. It is hard to teach an old dog, new tricks! BUT it will eventually make sense to her. This summer will be a good time to get the little unwanted items out of the way.
Following are tidbits from the Immigrant Genealogical Society which are being passed on to you. The newsletter is received each month and full of great items. All of the items were noted in the May 2007 Newsletter.
ANCESTRY.COM and ANCESTRY.DE
Most of us have heard of Ancestry.com, a website to which you can subscribe for an annual fee. The Ancestry operators have now added a second site, Ancestry.de, which provides much of the same information to researchers in German.
When Ancestry.com posts new items online, some are often designated as "in the clear". That means-non-subscribers can use them before they are posed in the "subscription only" part of the database. Recently Clear Digital Media, Inc. created a new website that lists the new items free to public use on Ancestry.com. This makes it much easier to find which items are currently "in the clear".
Simply go to FreeOnAncestry.com. It will show what databases are currently available free.

Library of Congress Brittle Books
The Sloan Foundation has donated $2,000,000 to the Library of Congress to enable it to digitize thousands of its "Brittle Books" that are in danger of being lost to physical disintegration. These will include Regimental Histories and state and county histories.
The announcement of the Sloan Foundation Grant was publicized Jan 31, 2007. This means that in future years many records will be available either online or by Inter-library Loan, that would otherwise become totally unavailable. This should keep genealogists busy for many more years.
An announcement has been made at several recent genealogical events that the Ancestry.com website would NOT be available at local Family History Centers free of charge after April 1, 2007. Some U.S. censuses and other databases will still be available. Inquire at your local FHC when going there to use databases.

Domesday Book Online
The Domesday Book is one of the earliest British records still available. It contains a detailed description of land held by the King of England and his chief tenants as early as 1066 A.D. Its records are still used in court cases today. Images of the Books are now posted online. The U.K. Nat'l Archives will make a free online search, but a download requires a fee of about $6.50 U.S. per page copied. Check their website at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/domesday
