2011 Computer Genealogy Notes

October 1, 2011
We reviewed some familiar sites
Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org and noticed some of the differences in FamilySearch.org's old site 
Another enduring site which does not get much mention is Godfrey Memorial Library
A "relatively" (pardon the pun) new site, Macavo which only searches genealogy databases and blogs
PeopleFinders is a great site, especially for kids, to start looking for ancestors
