In the News...

I came across two different stories this week on MSNBC.com that have a peripheral connection to genealogy. One is about a postcard sent during WW1 that finally arrived 92 years later! As genealogists we would say definitely "better late than never."

Here's the link:

The second is about a couple who petitioned to have their wedding in a cemetery. The article does not indicate that the two are genealogists -- but this is a very "genealogist" thing to do, isn't it? However, it was a hearse that brought the couple together. Read about it here:
