Just an Announcement of some changes coming with the UNYG Blog

Nothing for you to worry about, but there will be some changes coming.

We have been publishing this free blog information on how to find your Upstate New York ancestors for several years now, by using Google’s Blogger Blog service. It has been free to produce other than the time invested. Thank you very much Google.

However, there are many features that we want to provide for you, still all going to be Free, don’t panic. \grin/

But we will be converting this Blog over to WordPress which will give us the ability to provide a far better user experience with this Blog’s information and access to tons of other really cool things.

This will not be happening right away, but we have the new domain and will be experimenting some until we figure out how to migrate all of the archived articles from here, over to the new website.

We know you are going to LOVE IT. This Blog sometimes loads so slowly that people get discouraged and leave, and I don’t blame them. We’re going to fix that with the new website.

Stay tuned. (We think that the end result should be rather seamless to you, but when it happens you will see our all new design!)

Here is a rather disturbing piece of news that was in the Washington Post. It has to do with laptops and other digital devices being seized at the border and should be of great concern to genealogists traveling abroad for genealogy research..Read about it on our sister Blog, Genealogy Miscellanea .

Upstate New York Genealogy Blog – – Announces New Website Review Program


Announcing New Upstate New York Website Review Program.

This is July 8, 2008. Remember this date 070808. We are starting a new service that we encourage all readers to participate in.

The Internet is full of instructional, informative and interesting websites related to Genealogy. The Blogroll and bookmarks that I personally visit almost every day, certainly once a week, runs in very high numbers. Just can’t get enough.

This particular website/Blog that you are reading now is blessed with thousands of regular readers and a great number of new readers every month. So here is what we want to do. If you own a Genealogy website or Blog, or if you really like a particular website or Blog, that is heavily based on Upstate New York Genealogy, then we want to help you get some attention.

Starting with the comments on this Blog entry, please submit your favorite website name, and the url for that specific website or Blog, and a simple one sentence description.

That’s all you have to do. These comments come directly to me before they are seen by the public. I will check the link out and if it is valid and not spammy, then I will approve the comment link and our several thousand readers will see it. That link will remain on this site until such time that I might deem to remove it. Remember this is a family site, keep the links appropriate.

Then once a month, I will write a free, unbiased, or biased if need be \grin/, review of a website that I believe to be very instructional, very informative and very interesting.

The reviews will happen near the closing date of each month. A reminder of this 070808 Blog post will be sent out quite often. We encourage ALL of you to participate!

So here’s your chance to shine. Here’s your chance to gain new readers. It is free and non-fattening.

Remember it MUST relate to either, Families of Upstate New York, or How To instruction for Upstate New York, or about a specific Upstate New York Location.

Oh, and as we have jokingly reported to this question many times before, as to where is Upstate New York? I always say look at our logo on our main website at and see the map of the state? Upstate New York is anywhere above Yonkers, as far as I am concerned.

*** Another announcement to watch for will be regarding our forthcoming Upstate New York Genealogy Newsletter. Subscribers to this Blog will automatically be included, so subscribe now. Free gifts, special features, major discounts on products you all use, and information that will not be published on this Blog. Stay tuned for more information. Subscribe Now. Oh, by the way, the UNYG Newsletter will be FREE!
