A regular potpourri -- information about preserving photographs,
the ISO Country Codes, poetry -- stuff I'm baffled so far as to
where it logically belongs. :-)
Scanning your photos, preserving your negatives, labeling your pictures,
and related tips.
Eastman Kodak's 800 number for getting advice on saving and/or
restoring old photgraphs. (I rummaged around on the
Kodak homepage and didn't find
anything pertinent there, at least, not during one superficial pass.)
A bit of a mixed bag: addresses and dues for various organizations
and publications with an interest in computerized genealogy;
a nice bibliography of related resources; a tip on how to find your
local Family History Center, and some information on dealing with the
Library of Congress by mail or telephone.
A listing of the files available in July 1992 from the CPAFUG BBS in
Columbia, Maryland. Are they still there now?
Information about Federal Locator, an organization with a database of
federal employees, past and present, military and civilian, who have
registered with them.
Ahem... I thought that I would never see
A poem describing genealogy...
But I was wrong -- this file contains just that, a poem titled
Laws of Genealogy.
As long as we're being a tad bit, um, goofy, how about an "Are You a
Genealogist" Poster? It's ASCII art, so you don't need any special
viewers. (It comes up OK under my web browser, for instance, and
probably even works under lynx.)
An inspirational essay sent around the Amateur Radio packet net for the
4th of July in 1993: "I was born on July 4, 1776 ... I am 250 million
living souls ... I am Nathan Hale and Paul Revere..." Well, you get the
drift. The title? I Am the United States.
Booklists from the Library of Congress: Some books
in the Library of Congress on-line catalog that mention genealogy.
See Library of Congress files for help on how
to use the information referenced in the following series.
