RootsTech 2019
Our booth at RootsTech was a hit. We had a lot of visitors, and we heard people saying things like..."I've been coming to RootsTech for years looking for something like this." and "I am really excited about this. I can't wait to tell ___ about this." We also had a kids activity for Family Day with Virtual Reality headsets and they loved it. We released the results of our poll and are going to start adding new data from those locations.

Directory of U.S. Museums for Genealogists. We have hand-selected a list of museums that have some interest for local historians and genealogists. These are great ideas for places to visit for more research or context when you are on a road trip. Each marker you pick will show a nearby museum to that area that might have more discoveries for you. It also has a link to the website where you can find more information about hours and exhibits.

Easier Filters. Now our filters are easier to use and more powerful too. Limit the markers by year and location. You can also limit to specific surnames to compare locations of multiple families.

Favorites. Add your own private comments to any marker. This will create a list of favorite markers that you can display for tracking your own research clues and places you want to visit.

County Boundary Changes. If you are not aware of boundary changes you might be missing valuable information hiding in another county. Our Boundary Changes feature makes it easy to view changes around every marker in the United States.
