My pedigree chart - animated - you've got to see this!

MyHeritage's Deep Nostalgia™, in just over a week since its release, has exploded in popularity and has become an internet sensation. Over 10 million faces have been animated so far, and a few thousand photos are being animated every minute. Deep Nostalgia is creating massive interest in genealogy, especially among the younger generations.

I've been having a lot of fun with it. Maybe too much fun. In my first post about it I showed my great-grandmother's still image and how Deep Nostalgia animated it. Reactions have been fascinating.

When my aunt saw the animation of her grandfather, she replied that she had tears and asked if I would do the same thing for her grandmother. So Aunt Teri, here you go.

My Great-Grandmother:

And my Great-Grandfather:

My Animated Pedigree Chart

So I thought I'd have some fun and create a basic pedigree chart, but instead of still images for my ancestors' pictures, I'd try using the MyHeritage-created animated videos in their place. Watch it here:

I admit, I had a little (a lot) of fun doing this. 

Read more about Deep Nostalgia here. Or visit here to begin animating your photos. But be careful, it becomes addictive. But we're genealogists, we're used to that, right?

Magazines Provide a Time Capsule for Your Ancestors

Magazines Provide a Time Capsule for Your Ancestors

I’m a huge fan of magazines. When I go to a bookstore they are the first thing I look for. I enjoy flipping through all varieties of magazines whether they focus on genealogy, history or technology and crafts. Why? Magazines provide resources and ideas that I find valuable whether it be for my research or personal life.

Magazines also are a great window into a specific place in time. Current affairs magazines reflect what’s happening in the world in regards to news, arts, and science. Similarly, magazines published in earlier generations provide a glimpse of what was happening in their world, what was important to our ancestors, and what goods, medicines, and services they had access to. 

Popular Mechanics Magazine

Magazines are the descendent of other print publications such as books, broadsides, and pamphlets. The first magazine was published in 1663 by German theologian and poet, Johann Rist. In the United States, magazine publishing predates the Revolutionary War. American Magazine premiered in 1741 and days later Benjamin Franklin published General Magazine. Those two magazines didn’t last a year but they would lead the way for other American magazines. [1]

In the 19th century magazines became more affordable and more widely read. “At first these magazines emphasized features that promoted improvement, enlightenment, and family entertainment, but towards the end of the century, they evolved into popular versions that aimed at providing amusements.” [2]

Classified Advertisements

Historic magazines provide us a glimpse of our ancestor’s world. Even though they most likely do not name our ancestors (unless they were an author, the focus of an article, sold something through advertisements) but they provide us a glimpse of the social history of the time. It’s through the articles, illustrations, and advertisements that we learn what our ancestors wore, ate, read for entertainment, and perhaps bought.

Finding Magazines Online

So where do you find historical magazines online? Digitized book websites are a great place to search. Search favorites such as Google Books, Hathi Trust, and Internet Archive.

Some examples of what can be found on these digitized books websites include:

Google Books

Hathi Trust

Internet Archive has a specific collection of magazines called The Magazine Rack with over 210,000 results (though not all magazines are part of this collection). Some magazines you might find of interest include:

There are online resources to find vintage magazines. Websites to consider include:

Other online places to find digitized vintage magazines include genealogy subscription websites, public and academic library subscription websites, and ebay. Consider reading vintage magazines to get a sense of your ancestor's lives and take note of the images that might help tell your ancestor's story.

New "Bonus" Webinar - How Did My Pennsylvania Ancestor Get There?: Migration Trails West by Elissa Scalise Powell, CG, CGL

New "Bonus" Webinar - How Did My Pennsylvania Ancestor Get There?: Migration Trails West by Elissa Scalise Powell, CG, CGL

During 2021, on the last Friday of each month, we're pleased to offer Legacy Family Tree Webinar subscribers a new bonus webinar just for them!   This month enjoy "How Did My Pennsylvania Ancestor Get There?: Migration Trails West" by Elissa Scalise Powell, CG, CGL. 

How Did My Pennsylvania Ancestor Get There?: Migration Trails West

Considering the trails and reasons why your ancestor left Pennsylvania will give you some clues as to where you might search for his origins there. This lecture helps the attendee give much thought to the five W’s and H of migration: • WHO and WHAT: How can you find your ancestors’ migration path? • WHEN and WHERE: migration routes leading out of Pennsylvania to points west using waterways and overland pathways and when they were used • WHY: Push and Pull Reasons for migrating: ethnic, religious, political, land, jobs, families, etc. Military service often led to settlement in areas where the soldier served, or where he settled due to bounty land grants. • HOW: trails, roads, railroads, rivers and canals Several case studies illustrate how awareness of migration paths can solve genealogical problems even from a several states away.

Now it's in full-color AND animated. Watch:

How to locate an ancestor in Ontario - free webinar by Janice Nickerson now online for limited time

The recording of today's webinar by Janice Nickerson, "How to locate an ancestor in Ontario, Canada West or Upper Canada (when you don’t know where they lived)" is now available  to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

This webinar will provide strategies and resources to help you discover where your ancestor lived in Ontario, Canada West or Upper Canada, when you don’t have a specific place of origin. These include the types of records you should search in your ancestors’ place of later settlement, as well as records that are specific to Ontario (which, depending on the time period, might be called Ontario, Canada West or Upper Canada) research. As the focus here is on locating your ancestor, we will focus on province-wide records and indexes. We will not cover the many records and indexes that are useful to the genealogist once the place of residence is known. Handout materials will include references for specific publications and records.
