Here's what is in this issue of the magazine:

  • Blue and Gray Trails: “Pay Attention to the Pension” This month we’re going to talk about Civil War Pension Files, a well-known and highly regarded resource when researching a Civil War veteran. Now you may know lots about pension files but don’t skip to the next article just yet. I’ll share a couple things you may not know and a bonus tip. By Cindy Freed
  • Genealogy Downunder: “Family Trivia in Digitised Newspapers” How many of us know our ancestors exact last moments? Thanks to a newspaper account into the death of one of Shauna’s convict ancestors, we know exactly how and when he died. Learn some more about the treasures to be found in digitised newspapers. By Shauna Hicks
  • “Spring Floods and Cemetery Visits” As genealogists, we all talk about what we need when we go to the cemetery. Terri shares her experience dealing with the after effects of a flooded cemetery. Plan your next field trip by being prepared.  By Terri O’Connell
  • Heimatbote: “Heimat Bavaria” A look at life in the Bavaria of our ancestors, with a guide to locating Bavarian parish records. Ute also guides us to resources like Jewish records, civil registration, directories, and Heimatvereine. By Ute Brandenburg 
  • Modus Operandi: “A Trip to the Family History Library” Planning a trip to the Family History Library? Whether a seasoned researcher or beginning your genealogy journey, having a plan in place when visiting the Family History Library will ensure a positive experience. By Cheri Hudson Passey
  • Getting Started: “Census Records from 1820 to 1790” The information contained in early census records is thin to say the least. Let’s take an in-depth look at the remaining censuses to see how we can make this information work for us. By Jenny Lanctot
  • Ladies First: “Fishwives and Herring Girls” This column investigates the working lives of our female ancestors, covering both paid employment and household tasks. It is often easier to research the occupations of the men in our families, so now is the time to redress the balance and put the ladies first. In this issue we are examining the work of the fishwives and herring girls. By Janet Few
