The new Deceased Online blog

If you're a regular reader you know I pay special attention to deceasedonline.com

that is rapidly adding cemetery and cremation records from the UK. Along with digitized newspapers, these records offer some of the greatest potential for making new genealogical discoveries.

Now deceased online has a blog designed to "explore the millions of records on the database taking a deeper look at the range of data available and demonstrating their uses and applications through historical and topical case histories."

Almost inevitably the first posting has an Olympics theme featuring Scottish Olympic heroes from 1908, competing for Great Britain, including one of the first ever Scottish winners of an Olympic gold medal.

Look of postings almost weekly at http://deceasedonlineblog.blogspot.com/
