Som släktforskare när man går runt på en kyrkogård så är det lätt att bli nyfiken på alla de livsöden och historier som ligger gömda där under sten och jord. I söndags fann jag denna gravsten från 1863, upplyst av höstsolen, ståendes på den äldre delen av Vimmerby kyrkogård i sin till synes oansenlighet. Stenen som bör vara en av de äldre stenarna bevarade på kyrkogården tillhör en viss Hedvig Magdalena Nordensjöld, född 1789, död 1863.
This is a quick notice to let you know there may not be as many articles as normal posted in this newsletter in the next few days. If you have been reading this newsletter for some time, you already know that I often travel to genealogy conferences. This time, I will attend The Family History Show in London, England, this Saturday. I hope to write about the conference events that I see and attend.
There is an article by Marc Daalder in the Detroit Free Press that will interest genealogists. It starts:

NOTE:This article has nothing to do with genealogy. If you are looking for genealogy-related articles, you might want to skip this one. However, if you would like to learn of a cheap and very secure method of storing data in the cloud for backup purposes, this article may be of interest to you.
Wasabi is a brand-new cloud storage service. The company is so new that not all the planned “bells and whistles” are yet available.
The warehouse* which has been used as an interim storage facility must be emptied to facilitate enabling and construction works for the development of new archival storage vaults.
