RootsWeb Blog

RootsWeb Newsroom » Blog Archive » Updated Learning Center: "Recently updated their Learning Center. The Learning Center is a free resource with a lot to offer – video tutorials, how-to guides, community information, a lot of great articles and much more! As we all know, whether you are just starting your family history research or you are a seasoned researcher there is always more to learn. If you aren’t familiar with the Learning Center we think it’s worth taking a look to see what tidbits of information you can find."

But how do you permantly kill that horrible video?
It is in really bad taste like having background music on a website

JENSEN - - or put in your own name - - Name Meaning and Origin:
Danish, Norwegian, and North German: patronymic from the personal name Jens, a reduced form of Johannes (see John). This is Denmark’s most frequent surname.

Dictionary of American Family Names, Oxford University Press, ISBN 0-19-508137-4"

this is of course the real freebie pearl of the learning center

RootsWeb Newsroom » Blog Archive » Message Boards Hardware Upgrade: "Last night we moved the message boards to a new server! Many of you have experienced errors and slowness over the past few weeks when using the message boards; this was due to our running out of space as the boards continued to grow. The upgrade last night has increased the capacity we have to manage the message boards and has solved many of the issues you have experienced. When using the boards today, and in the future, you will notice an increase in response time of the message boards, whether you are searching, browsing or using the administrator tools–you will also see a drastic decrease in errors. We are excited for the new hardware and for the better experience you will have using RootsWeb!"

I just hope they restored the old high standard of useability
