This is not only a review of 2015 but it is also the 1000th post on this blog.
There were three genealogy TV series running in 2015 and for each I tried to give a preview of the episodes. Sometimes that is easy as there are press releases. I always try to find something different from just posting the press releases. In some cases there are local online newspaper articles stating that a person had visited there.
I went to the NY Family History Conference in September and did a series of articles on that. I attended both RootsTech and a conference while sitting in my chair at home. It sure is easy to watch those webcasts from the comfort of home.
The Old News from a 100 years ago and Top Songs from 50 years ago were regular features.
Probably wrote too much about Kodak for most people. As a former employee it still amazes me that they went from a top corporation to bankruptcy. Had a ridiculous number of people view this posting about Kodak knocking down buildings when it was linked to by a few people on Facebook.
Over on the GenWeb of Monroe County website, in 2015 I finished off transcribing genealogies from a series of newspaper by Anah B. Yates in the early 1900s. I added newspaper vital records for the last half of 1831, death records from the Alms House and the Insane Asylum. Someone also sent burial records of the Chili Rural Cemetery which include some people without tombstones.
Scanned and made available programs for a 1935 horse show, 1954 rodeo, 1940 Thanksgiving church service, 1962 auto show, 1949 circus and a 1916 theatre show.
I also added catalogs of a 1912 art exhibit, homes being built in the 1940s, 1937 nursery catalog and a catalog of horse harnesses and related equipment.
I also scanned The Lakes Country by Arch Merrill. I put that on Archive.org because they make it available in many formats, including Kindle format.
Then I also scanned a lot of Kodak item including 45 issues of Cine-Kodak News from the 1930s and 40s. That was a large format magazine for amateur movie makers.
All of those items that I added to the website are linked to on the What’s New page.
