I found the coolest thing...

So, after the meeting last month, I'm doing the "go through every single person in my PAF file and fix all the errant names, dates, and places" thing, and trying to find missing counties or European states. We were given a wonderful handout written by a Family History bigwig from the Church (I don't know his name) that gave very specific instructions. Maybe I've already mentioned it but it's that cool - it deserves another mention.

I have some Canadian family members and have tried, several times, to locate an online Canadian county finder with no success. But, when I typed a German city into my search engine, out popped this fun little site (it's actually HUGE) that has maps of every country in the world, along with a list of each city and the state or county or region it's in. Hello??? How awesome???

So I put it in my links - it's called "Maps of the World." Look out, Canadian cities... you're getting new counties soon.

In other news, I leaned on my Dysart relatives - aunts, uncles, cousins - and have put together a new genealogy page to send to everyone. Not everyone was able to open it, so I'm wondering what's up with that, but Uncle Doug emailed today that he'd received it and even passed along a correction. Yay! Now for the Smith side to send in their stuff.
