Thanks to GeneaBloggers Thomas MacEntee for bringing this to our attention via Facebook.

Did you know that school districts take a census each year to determine the state’s allocation of funds to each district?….

Family Village on Facebook

Angilletta-Pisecnyville

I have been playing Family Village on Facebook for almost a week now and while I thought I would really enjoy it it turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. The game is a spin off of a person’s family tree. Players add their family into the program and have the opportunity to immigrate them over, purchase homes, and assign them jobs. They create their own little village.
Ok, before anyone bites my head off I DO realize it is still in Alpha testing but the game freezes often (sometimes for hours) and you end up getting totally frustrated as you lose coins which have taken hours to collect!

What also makes it annoying is that living people must confirm their relationship in order to continue so unless you allow the game to send them an email you can not move them forward (unless of course you actually purchase Family bucks with real money).

The game is confusing at best and too time consuming. I think I will put it away  for now and perhaps revisit it once they get all the bugs worked out.

Find My Past Logo This just in from our friends at Find My Past:

Our World Cup widows offer for the second England match is now much more flexible, particularly for those of you based outside of the UK.

  • It’s simple – sign in after 9am on Friday, and choose when to use your 90 minutes

You are now able to use the records at findmypast.co.uk at a time that suits you. We’ve been working hard to improve the speed of the site after the overwhelming popularity of our first offer so that even more customers will be able to benefit from it.

The free 90 minutes are available as a single continuous period and will begin the moment you sign into findmypast.co.uk between the times above.

Please note: If you have asked findmypast.co.uk to remember your details and are normally signed in automatically, your 90 minutes of free access will begin from the moment you visit findmypast.co.uk during the free period.

If you need a helping hand with your research, take a look at our video tutorials or our Getting Started page which provide clear advice on how to use our records.

We’d love to hear about any discoveries you make while our records are free to view – post anything you’d like to share with us and our readers on our Facebook page.

Pass this on to friends, family or anyone else you think might want to make the most of our free family history records. Also see Special Offer from Find My Past written 11 Jun 2010.
