The Blood Detective is about a series of murders in London linked by an index number carved into each body...a number that happens to be the death certificate number of a murder victim from 1879! Nigel Barnes is the genealogist who assists with the case by searching the past to solve the mystery behind a string of murders from over a century ago.
For all of our readers with Swedish roots, this week we are also featuring two videos on Swedish genealogy. Anna-Karin Schander, of Anna-Karin's Genealogical Podcast, talks about her research into Swedish genealogy and how her Podcast started. She also provides some tips for Swedish researchers as well as some links to help you in your journey. Here's a few to get you started:
- The Swedish Federation of Genealogical Societies
- The Swedish Emigrant Institute
- Svensk Arkivinformation SVAR
Another great Swedish genealogy website is Genline.com, and we are featuring an interview from the SCGS Jamboree with Kathy Meade. She explains that Genline is an online subscription service that provides access to images of original Swedish church records. A great site you will want to add to your list of resources!
Also from the 2008 Jamboree, we have a short piece featuring Richard Williams, Director of Sales and Marketing of the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel, discussing some of the extensive amenities the hotel offers, including being next door to the world's largest genealogy library, the LDS Family History Library.
And to round out this exciting week, we have another tutorial from Eric Basir of Photo Grafix that teaches you how to create a photo page and customize the size and captions for the photos. Thanks for this easy to follow how-to, Eric!
