How to get out of being "stuck" on a family line?

I've researched one line (dad's grandmother) back to the 1700's, with very good accuracy, there's just tons of things on them. However, I'm stuck on finding a single iota of info past dad's…Continue

RootsTech 2016 will start accepting registrations in one month. Both serious experienced, as well as newly interested, genealogists should check this out. Attendees come from all over the world. I'm just getting my feet wet in this, and went last year. Definitely planning on 2016.

Anyone can volunteer to do indexing. I've been doing it going on 2 yrs now. FamilySearch has more information on how to participate for anyone interested.

That's awesome Scott! This is sure to be a boon to many people. Thanks are due to the Smithsonian, FamilySearch, and the National Archives. I hope that indexing goes quickly and that the National Museum of African American History and Culture will be able to store this information and effectively offer it to researchers.

A significant announcement today: The release of the Freedmen's Bureau records.

Freedmen's Bureau Release

The question was asked, "Does it all mean anything to you?" I've been tracing my family and my wife's for several months, knowing there is a mountain of work yet to do, and I am fascinated by the implications of some of the data I've found. The research is a tremendous lesson in history and geography both, and I pore over some of this information and wonder what life must have been like for many of these people during the various time periods I've looked into. It's still an amazing journey for me, and I expect it will continue to be amazing.

Wow. I have been away from the community for a while and had not realized people had joined this group. This is the first group I have created, so if there is anything I need to do let me know.

Has anyone been inspired by the recent "Faces of America" special on PBS? Last night's episode focusing on Yo-Yo Ma, Stephen Colbert, Maryl Streep, Eva Longoria, etc, was really amazing to me. I've been stuck with mine at a couple of different points and not sure where to go, but I've gotten some wind in my sails after seeing what they found for each of them.

Eric, I'm stuck there. I have access to Ancestry.com for free at the local library, and I've been really disappointed with what they've had. I'm looking in Ireland and Alsace-Lorraine. What country(ies) are you currently looking in?
