If interested please send him an email with name and your SGS membership ID# to: Rmorford@ancestry.com

(Please Note: I didn't even realize I was in the Beta site until I went to help someone who wasn't in it. and I could see the differences! I spoke to Randon Morford at Ancestry yesterday and he said that when they go live on the whole system for everyone, BETA testers will just be merged in and will not even realize it.)

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS
On February 17 let yourself be inspired by Random Acts of Kindness Day to bring joy to the people you come across. The day encourages people to do good deeds, and celebrate the pay it forward mentality. It also reminds us that doing something kind for someone else can have a big impact not only on their day, but also on ours - being kind to others makes us happier, and makes us realize we need to be kinder to ourselves too. An act of kindness doesn't have to be a big gesture either, sometimes
the smallest act can have the biggest impact.
So, on Random Acts of Kindness Day, do kind things for others. It is easy, it is free, and it will put a smile on everyone’s face. For more info click below

A closer look at ORAL HISTORIES...Oral histories are a valuable genealogical resource. They give a unique perspective that only one person on the face of the earth could ever give, which is that of the person giving the history. They are historical treasures for so many reasons. This is what you need to know about the value of oral histories, where to find them, and how to do them yourself with your own relatives.
