Year in review summaries

Genealogy bloggers aren't immune from the urge to look back as the year draws to a close.
Roberta Estes, has posted the top ten genetic genealogy happenings at http://bit.ly/VbVSbZ
Chris Paton looks back through the files of his British GENES blog, giving excellent coverage of UK and Ireland developments, Jan through April at http://bit.ly/TnzYEr, May - August at http://bit.ly/RouOIB, and Sept-Dec at http://bit.ly/WSSqVc

I'm looking forward, especially to the release of the 1921 Canadian census this year. It was taken on 1 June 1921 so should be available very soon after the anniversary date. We'll see how serious Library and Archives Canada is about online service. I'm hoping for some turn around from the performance that led to the comment made following Cecilia Muir's presentation at the ACA conference in June that "LAC has lost its soul & its way."
