On 23 April 1896, the first movie was shown at Koster and Bials Music Hall at New York City. Up until this time, people saw films individually by looking into a kinetoscope, a boxlike “peep show.” This was the first time in the US that an audience sat in a theater and watched a movie together.
Today is Thursday, 23 April 2015, and here is what’s available in terms of Daily Blogging Prompts and other related events in the genealogy blogosphere:
