Have Your Say
The last time we did a poll of who was using what Genealogy Software was in Jan 2012.
Since then things have moved on quite a bit, there is more online activity and new options, a couple of the popular proprietary software programs have, or are about to become defunct, and there is a change in our use of operating systems with more Mac and Linux users around.
Doesn't matter really what the news is, or where it is, if you want to keep up to date with newspapers worldwide, you just have to use this special Newspaper Map.
WAGS and Western Australian genealogy and family history included, if you are wanting to know what local newspaper is current for just about anywhere in the world, you can't go past this. All states of Australia included, and massive numbers of newspapers worldwide available at the click of an icon.
Magic stuff with newspapers and maps....
