Genealogy Roundup, January 10

Cimetière du Calvaire – OK, who’s going to make me jealous and tell me they’ve been to this cemetery?

Friends could be family. Family could be unrelated. What people are finding out from DNA sites – Yup.

‘A Village with My Name’ blends family stories with 20th-century Chinese history – Now this sounds intriguing …

Futureface: A Family Mystery, an Epic Quest, and the Secret to Belonging – And here’s another promising genealogy read (out in March) – this one from Alex Wagner. Will include DNA.

Recently accounted for World War II Veteran from Waco to be buried with full honors – Can’t tell you how happy I am that Pfc. Lonnie B.C. Eichelberger is coming home. This was one of my toughest cases ever. Here’s what this article doesn’t tell you. I’m fairly certain that he fibbed about his age to enlist and that he was only 16 at the time of his death. RIP and welcome home to this hero who gave all.

Revisionist History: The Basement Tapes; Season 2, Episode 10 – I’ve long been a fan of Malcolm Gladwell (did some of the research on his family history for “Faces of America“), and was just listening to this episode of his podcast. It’s oddly genealogical as it pertains to our responsibility to our parents’ legacies, so I thought some of my fellow genies might want to give it a listen.
