"meant to compliment our already established blog and be more of a place where you can share and discover stories and more. On Sticky Notes, users will be able to discover various types of stories, possibly including their very own. We also have areas of the blog that feature our very own Ancestry Anne, aka Anne Mitchell. She will be answering user questions daily, showing you the solutions to some of your most difficult family history questions. We’ll also have the Interesting Finds section – here you will discover some of the most unique and interesting records we come across in our research, and a variety of content that we dig up in all of our collections here at Ancestry.com."Ancestry Anne recently answered a reader's question about an ancestor incarcerated at Andersonville Prison during the Civil War. A recent post on Interesting Finds reminded readers about the valuable information to be gleaned from preserved signature registers of Freedman's Bank. You can subscribe to receive these brief notes via email or by your preferred reader service. I signed up to receive the Sticky Notes by email - maybe a tip will provide me with a lead about the Athens [Ohio] Insane Asylum!
