October Update to FamilySearch Blog Posts

This was a memorable month for FamilySearch in celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the present building housing the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. FamilySearch continued publishing a long list of blog posts about this subject and others. I have noticed that there are far fewer technologically oriented posts than in the past. Most of these posts are personal narratives and experiences. There is also very little information about the present programs and options on the FamilySearch.org website. There seem to be a number of articles that are aimed at the general genealogical community. Take a look at what there was this past month.
