What in the World is Going on at Ancestry?

Have you noticed something different about Ancestry lately? More info on your screen...other users who appear to be researching your ancestors? What's up?

Tune in to Genealogy Gems Podcast episode #70 to find out what in the world is going on from David Graham, Product Manager at

In this episode he takes us on a personal tour of Ancestry's new feature called Member Connect. It's a chance to hear the driving force behind the changes, and how this new info that is popping up on your screen just might lead you to some valuable new connections with other researchers.

And David not only tells us about Member Connect but shows us! Check out the two new videos (Parts 1 & 2) at the Genealogy Gems TV Channel where you can watch as David walks us through the Member Connect data right on the screen! (and be sure to subscribe to the channel for free while there so you'll be automatically notified when the next installments are published.)

I've also got lots of news about what's going on at Google and a few gems prompted by a listener's email that will take you "behind the scenes" of the US Federal Census.
