Part 2 of the genealogist, Elizabeth Shown Mills’, Q&A with the public is now up at the NY Times. Some of the questions answered are:
How to Identify Ancestral photos.
Do you recommend using genealogy-software templates for citing sources, or is it best to write them freeform?
Is there an accepted “standard” way of numbering ancestors when doing research?
How do I research Railroad Employees?
How to begin Indian (South Asian) research.
The best thing that I got from her answers was that MyHeritage.com has facial recognition software for your old unidentified photos!
