October is Family History Month and I hope you are celebrating by sharing your genealogy work and resources with family and friends. NGS has ideas and images available for you and for sharing, especially with your local societies. Celebrate with us… see the links on the NGS home page, ngsgenealogy.org.
Also to celebrate this month, I am starting off the Genealogy Records Roundup with a new Civil War records project called Civil War Bluejackets. The common sailor in the US Navy during the Civil War has not received the same historical attention as soldiers, and this exciting new project aims to correct that. There are also railroad employee records and digital book collections to discover, so read on and find some new sources for your research.
