UPDATED GENEALOGY BARGAINS for Tuesday, March 31, 2015

New Deals

I’ve had several people ask me about MyHeritage and if I could get them a special deal. I asked, and now everyone can receive . . get MyHeritage for 50% off! This offer is good through Wednesday April 1st so act quickly!

One of my toughest brick walls broken tonight? YES! Several of my genealogy friends have said they were impressed with the newspaper results at MyHeritage for their surnames – many items they hadn’t seen before. I’ve been very busy lately and wasn’t keeping up on my Record Matches (this is where MyHeritage alerts you of new records that match someone in your tree). It seems that NewspaperArchive.com (one of the MyHeritage partners) added new newspapers – like the Middletown (NY) Daily Argus. So tonite, FINALLY I’ve discovered when, where and how my 2nd great grandfather Martin SLATTERY died!

“Martin Slattery, a quarryman, killed near Kingston, yesterday, by a rock falling on him. He leaves a widow and six children, the oldest only eleven years of age.”

Source: “Live Local Topics,” Daily Argus (Middletown, New York), 29 January 1895, electronic newspaper, archived, (http://www.newspaperarchive.com: accessed 30 March 2015), p. 5, col. 2, para. 5. Death of Martin Slattery in accident on 28 January 1895 in Kingston, New York.

Did you also know that while NewspaperArchive.com is $198 a year, you get full access to all 139 million of these US newspaper pages for just $119 with this offer from MyHeritage?

Now I am off to see how his wife Margaret LEEHIVE died shortly after Martin SLATTERY! In order to save 50% you MUST use this link below:
