The Ancestry Insider

Have you meet the Ancestry Insider? I saw quite a lot of him last week at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy of Genealogy (SLIG) and expect that he be present and very active at RootsTech later this week. If you’ve not met him in person, I’m sure you’re aware of his blog: The Ancestry Insider: The unofficial, unauthorized view of Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org. As indicated in the header of his blog he “reports on, defends, and constructively criticizes these two website and associated topics.” I believe his does that very well and really enjoy reading his posts to learn about such topics as missing census records, what’s new at FamilySearch.

I found his post “FamilySearch Data Centers and Second Vault” very interesting

His topics are varied and I can’t imagine a genealogist who wouldn’t enjoy following the Ancestry Insider.

Confession: since I love lighthouses so was excited to see his post (admitted some time ago) called “Serendipity in Genealogy: The Lighthouse.”
