The archive includes histories of families, county and local histories, how-to books on genealogy, genealogy magazines and periodicals (including some international), medieval books (including histories and pedigrees), and gazetteers. It also includes some specialized collections such as the Filipino card collection and the “Liahona Elders Journal.” The books come from the collections of the FamilySearch Family History Library, the Allen County Public Library, the Houston Public Library – Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research, the Mid-Continent Public Library – Midwest Genealogy Center, the BYU Harold B. Lee Library, the BYU Hawaii Joseph F. Smith Library, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Church History Library.See my previous posts for links to all of the libraries.
In addition to the new items in the Family History Archives, Ohana Software has issued another update to their program FamilyInsight. The latest version is 2009.1.20.0. The good thing about the updates is the that they add functionality and correct bugs in the program. If you are a registered user the upgrades are free and load automatically when you open the program if you are connected to the Internet.
