With Sassy Jane

The Free Monthly Genealogy Newsletter
February 2021 Issue

Included in this issue of First Friday Genealogy with Sassy Jane are websites I love and hope that you will, too. 

The 1918 vintage valentine at left is one of many used by suffragist campaigners in the US. Suffrage valentines date from c. 1915 through to Carrie Chapman Catt founding the League of Women Voters on 14 Feb 1920.

Visit, where genealogists combine primary sources and mapping to document the first women voters there.

The Text Message is a National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) blog highlighting "discoveries from processing and reference archivists on the job."  

Sign up for blog email to discover interesting finds from NARA collections, straight from the archivists who process and digitize collections. You'll also receive notices of NARA collections that have been recently digitized.

John LeGloahec, Archives Specialist in the Electronics Records Division at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland, USA, wrote one of my favorite posts recently, documenting libraries that are included in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) and National Historic Landmarks Program Records at NARA. 

The image below is of the library created for Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) workers at Idaho SP Brown’s Creek CCC Camp Barracks (National Archives Identifier 84249643). After the Civilian Conservation Corps program ended, the building was converted to a public library.

Think of this interesting website as a buffet of genealogy records and topics. You can find free access to tutorials and online records for specific parts of Poland; word lists in German; a useful DNA centimorgans relationship chart; help with Russian handwriting; and a quick overview of US naturalization records.

The owners write, "While we don’t have the time to keep up with a blog, our focus is more on guides, tutorials and some reviews on products/services that may help others with their research. I guess you can say we are the 'visual genealogists.'”

There are so many genealogical societies out there and so many volunteers who work hard to offer research and education for genealogists. To find a society in an area you're researching, or to join a local group, try these links.

And society board members? Please make sure your society is represented with current links to your websites.
