MyHeritage, Library edition available

"Unlike MyHeritage.com, MyHeritage-Library Edition is strictly a search-based research tool. MyHeritage.com features product elements that do not exist in the Library Edition, including: the ability to build a family tree, receive matches, collaborate with family members, and contact other users. Over 98% of the records available on MyHeritage.com are included in the MyHeritage-Library Edition. The exceptions are: Newspaper Archives; and Search Connect (a collection made up of former searches by MyHeritage users, enabling users that search for the same terms to collaborate). Subscribing to the MyHeritage-Library Edition provides HQRL’s patrons with full access to the MyHeritage database with no interruptions, paywalls, or limitations."

(Tracking the use of this data base at HQRL will help us determine interest and whether to continue our subscription in the future.)

Civil War photos
Computer scientist and history buff Kurt Luther created a free-to-use website, called Civil War Photo Sleuth, that uses facial recognition technology to cross-reference vintage photographs with a database and hopefully assign a name to unknown subjects.
