WW1 PROPAGANDA POSTERS(UK) Each of the nations which participated in World War One from 1914-18 used propaganda posters not only as a means of justifying involvement to their own populace, but also as a means of procuring men, money and resources to sustain the military campaign. In countries such as Britain the use of propaganda posters was readily understandable: in 1914 she only possessed a professional army and did not have in place a policy of national service, as was standard in other major nations such as France and Germany.

Google News Genealogy Style In this video I show you how to search Google News Archives & how to filter out the pay per view hits.

Genealogist Lloyd Bockstruck @ The Allen Public Library Genealogist Lloyd Bockstruck discusses genealogical trends and methodologies at Allen Public Library Monday, July 26 2010, 300 N. Allen Dr. Sponsored by the Friends of the Allen Public Library's Bach to Books Cultural Art Series and the Allen Senior Genealogy Club. After a deathbed request from my mother to place a marker on her father's grave, I pursued genealogy. A US Army veteran, my grandfather died from injuries sustained in World War One. Unfortunately, my mother did not know where he was buried. The Dallas Public Library's Genealogy section taught me how to research death and burial records which eventually led me to his grave site. That discovery inspired me to continue to learn more about my ancestors, a quest that ultimately led me as back as the Holy Roman Empire. Genealogy is the study of family ancestries or histories and can lead to discovering fascinating stories. For example, if your ancestor was a Hessian soldier paid by the British to fight the American colonists, you might unearth some previously unknown facts. You may discover how your family members originated from Pennsylvania, which had a large population of German-Americans at that time, and how many of these Hessians deserted the British and later fought for the Americans. For some, genealogy helps honor ancestors, and for others, it provides a historical context to build your own story. Both proved true for me. For over 30 years, Lloyd was manager of the Dallas Public Library's genealogy section ...

Forensic Genealogy in the Misha Defonseca Fraud RTBF in Belgium released a documentary about the Misha Defonseca fraudulent Holocaust story in October 2008. This 5 minute clip gives an overview of the forensic genealogy methods and some of the team that made the exposure possible. The entire documentary is 65 minutes and primarily in French. The following is a summary of the English translation for this segment. There are also several trailers for the French film "Survivre avec les Loups" on Youtube, as well as videos from the Paris premiere and European news reports once the fraud was exposed. The truth about Mishas real identity ultimately came from the United States publisher. Jane Daniel who had created a blog about her legal troubles as a kind of therapy, a way of finding help. Jane Daniel Publisher Five months after starting the blog, I received an email, which I will never forget. I opened the email and it said: I do not know where you are in your story at the moment, but perhaps I could help." Federal Archives, Waltham, Massachusetts: The person who contacted Jane was a professional genealogist. Sharon Sergeant began with a bank signature card filled out by Misha that had turned up among cases of documents after the trial. On it is Mishas mothers surname which Misha had claimed not to know: Donville. RTBF's "Devoir d'Enquete" documentarians Emmanuel Allaer and Philippe Lorsignol were fascinated with the reams of additional documentation. The genealogist also noted changes in ...

Barack Obama related to Brad Pitt, 6 US Presidents, Cheney Brangelina, meet your new cousins, Clobama. Proving again that politics makes strange bedfellows, genealogists announced Tuesday that Barack Obama is a distant cousin of actor Brad Pitt, while Hillary Clinton is related to Pitt's girlfriend, Angelina Jolie. Maybe they can all adopt a village in Cambodia. "When you get back into your ancestry, you eventually find that you're related to lots of people," said genealogist Christopher Child, who guided the presidential research for the New England Historic Genealogical Society. "Presidential candidates are no exception." The family trees of this year's White House contenders only get weirder from there, according to the study, which was based entirely on vital records kept by cities, counties and towns. Clinton, who is of French-Canadian descent on her mother's side, is also a distant cousin of singers Madonna, Celine Dion and Alanis Morissette, Child found. Obama, the son of a white woman from Kansas and a black man from Kenya, can call six US Presidents, including George W. Bush, his cousins. Meanwhile, McCain is a sixth cousin of First Lady Laura Bush. Child said that while the candidates often focus on pointing out differences between them, their ancestry shows they are more alike than they think. "It shows that lots of different people can be related; people you wouldn't necessarily expect," he said. Obama has the most prolific presidential lineage, featuring Democrats and Republicans. His distant cousins include ...
