Happy New Year! Say Hello to year 2016 ... and Hello to the Year's First Snow

Hello 2016 and Snow
We hope your holidays were merry and bright and that this year is a good one.

As far as genealogy goes this will be a year of ... something ... for Family Tree Maker users. The last year of support and perhaps a year of transition for some.

Whatever your genealogy project(s) for the year -- be it preparing to switch genealogy programs; organizing; scanning; interviewing; working on a new line or break wall; preparing for and taking a research trip; or hunkering down to finally write that book -- good luck!

Whether you are "hibernating" for the winter or escaping to warmer climates for a short while, don't forget to keep an eye out for savings and free access offers. (Don't we all like a deal.)

AncestryDNA is on sale for $79 (reg. $99) for the new year until January 6, 2015, at 11:59 p..m ET. Shipping and handling are extra.

Over at the New England Historic Genealogical Society's website, registered guest users (it's free) will have free unlimited access to three of its popular vital records databases for the month of January 2016 to "make headway on their 2016 genealogy project." These three databases are: Massachusetts Vital Records, 1841-1910; Vermont Births, Marriages and Deaths to 2008; and New Hampshire Births to 1901 and Marriages and Deaths to 1937. Did you know that guest users also get free access to every new database for the first 30 days that database is online? Another great reason among many to register as a guest user or become a member of the NEGHS society.

Remember, other sales of various sorts can be found listed over at GeneaBloggers.

We're just a week away from our first genealogy meeting of the season so get ready to learn with, share with, and enjoy the camaraderie of our fellow MCGG members.

See you soon at Mt. Clemens Public Library!
