Genealogy club notes: monitor, databases

New computer monitor: Frances Rubino kindly donated a new computer monitor to our club. I didn’t measure it but it’s *big*. It’s on PC #4 in the corner. #5, in front of that, now has two of the older monitors. Darwin helped with the setup. Thanks, Frances!

FindMyPast: We agreed to take a monthly subscription to FindMyPast, to try it out. Our subscription will expire on April 25th. I believe it’s getting used frequently (though we have no hard data). In the fall the Board will decide whether to take it up again or try something else.

Fold3: Fold3’s collection of military records is always available in our club rooms. But for the first half of April, through the 15th, they’re making their Civil War collection available for free (registration required but no credit card). Click here for the landing page.
