This month on the podcast, Jenkintown Library ditches Ancestry.com! I'll let you know where I'm getting my Ancestry fix now. It turned up some 18th century baptism records from Switzerland. Also, the second "Special Interest Group" at the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania was a success! I networked with a pair of interesting people there this month, and shared my own family history "brick wall" involving some 19th century Pickersgills. Links are in the show notes.
Happy New Year! It's been an exciting month so far. First, I renew my membership to the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania and pay a couple visits.

Lastly, I make some progress on a long-standing family history mystery involving the Donleys of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Links are in the show notes.
