Members may be interested in reading further in these magazines received recently at the CCGS Library:
The lead article in Internet Genealogy for Dec./Jan. 2014 highlights the HEARTH website at Cornell University. This offers context for our ancestors' stories with books and journals covering home economics and related disciplines for the period 1850-1950. The cover story reviews the current crop of scanners, including portable and desktop models, phone apps, and even 3-D devices. Maureen Taylor reviews the website Historypin, at which people add photographs at map locations worldwide. Other articles cover note-taking software, case studies, plus sites relating to World War I veterans, Latin phrases for genealogists, and British record societies with online information.
In the Idaho Genealogical Society Quarterly for fall 2013 there is a moving account of an adopted Native American child (a "lost bird" adopted into a white family) who is eventually reunited with her birth family siblings. An article on the "History of women miners in Idaho" shows that although a minority, women were an important presence in the mining industry both as spouses and in their own right. We also learn about a short chapter in Wyatt Earp's life that took place in Idaho in the Coeur d'Alene-area gold rush for most of 1884.
