Welcome to the Genealogy News from Geneatopia

23andMe Introduces Ancestry Service

23andMe now has a $99 ancestry service with ancestry-only reports. It’s available only in the U.S.

23andMe is a personal genomics and biotechnology company focusing on research about diseases and how to cure them using genetics. Many people submit their DNA to get reports about their health and participate in research.

The new ancestry services will not include the health related reports. If you test with the $99 ancestry service, you have the option later to upgrade for the health features for $125 to obtain over 60 health reports about yourself.

The ancestry service includes Ancestry Composition analysis that shows your lineage to 31 populations worldwide and DNA Relatives where you can share and compare your DNA to other 23andMe customers.

You also get a Neanderthal report that tells how much Neanderthal DNA you have. 23andMe is the only DNA company that can tell you this type of information.

23andMe is launching a national television ad to announce the new service.

Indexing Marriage Records

FamilySearch has a new indexing project called the U.S. Marriage Project. This is a joint initiative between Findmypast and FamilySearch. The project is working to save the marriage records from every state in the United States. The goal is to create a high-quality, searchable database of nearly every marriage record in the United States since the 1800s.

Marriage records are listed by state and indexers can choose a state that they feel connected to.

MyHeritage Adds Records for Finland

MyHeritage has added 33 million Finland church records. The records cover nearly 300 years and were maintained by the Lutheran Church in Finland.

These records are part of SuperSearch. MyHeritage has indexed the church records and pre-confirmation books under an agreement with the National Archives Service of Finland. The scanned original documents can be viewed.

If you have your family tree at MyHeritage, the MyHeritage Record Matching feature will find records in this new collection.

These records are sometimes called the Church Census and are also called household examination records. Starting in 1686 the church was required to keep records. However, some parishes had been keeping records. Some records date back to 1657.

Church books contain information about the family and if they understood their Christian faith and participated in the sacrament of Holy Communion. Family member names are listed along with the relationship to head of the household, birth date, birthplace, and other information regarding catechism, communion, baptism, vaccination, and occupation. Marriage and death information may be listed and it might mention where a family moved to.

New: 33 Million Finland Church Records Added

Twile Lets Users Merge Mulitple Gedcom Files

Twile is an online timeline for your family from the present to the earliest images you have for your ancestors. It creates interactive timelines with photos, text, and video. You can invite others to collaborate so they can comment on what you have posted and add stories and milestones of their own to the timeline.

Twile has announced that there is a new feature that allows users to merge multiple Gedcom files into one family tree. This means that family members that are independently researching can now bring all of their findings together on Twile. As family members work on their trees they can re-upload the Gedcom file so it is up to date.

Twile will use the data in the Gedcom files to add events to the timeline, such as births, marriages and deaths.

This new feature was a request of Twile customers.

LAC Update on Digitization of the Canadian Expeditionary Force Personnel Service Files

The Library and Archives Canada continues to digitize the Canadian Expeditionary Force personnel service files. These are the files for the soldiers of the first World War.

They are basically digitizing the files in alphabetical order and they are now up to the surname Levesque. Last month they were up to the name Larocque. That means that a little over 13,000 files were digitized last month.

Welsh Tithe Maps coming Online

Welsh tithe maps will be coming online for free by March 2017. Tithes were payments charged on land users. Tithe maps were created to ensure all tithes were paid with money instead of crops, wool, milk, or stock. These maps were created between 1838 and 1850.

These maps cover more that 95% of Wales. Each map has the tithe, the name of the landowner and land occupier, the land use, and in most cases the field name.

Volunteers are needed for preparing these maps to be online. You can find more information about this in the show notes.
