I know some of you will be interested in reading this article.
Michael Strauss has written an article concerning reconstructing the records that was destroyed in the 1973 fire at the National Personnel Record Center. This article appears on Fold3 at https://blog.fold3.com/reconstructing-the-past-the-national-personnel-record-center-fire-of-1973/
The administrators of the Anderson DNA Project have used Rootsweb as a home to store information about the project and lineages almost since the project began. Unfortunately in recent months, Rootsweb had to take down their web site due to a hack in to their systems. The latest report from Rootsweb has been that the WorldConnect and mailing lists are back online. So far, web sites have not been phased in to their systems upgrade.
We made the decision to transfer all the project information to WordPress to not only store our information, but provide a blog, too. We hope our members like the new changes.
We wish Rootsweb the best and hope their web site is top-notch soon!
