Historical Markers - The Villasur Expedition

Today, August 14, 2020, is the 300 year anniversary of the massacre of the Spanish Villasur expedition, which occurred in the area of my hometown, Columbus, Nebraska. This is not something I recall learning about in any class in any grade in school. I know I don't have relatives associated with this event but I'm confident some people in town do. I know it's easy to ignore the historical markers you see every day when going about your day to day life but it might be a good idea to check them out at least once. What can you learn about your town that you didn't know before? Could your ancestors have been involved in the events?

Free Access to MyHeritage Photo Enhancer and In Color

 I received an email today letting me know that My Heritage is providing free access for everyone, even non-subscribers, to their Photo Enhancer and In Color tools through September 10, 2020. If you don't have a MyHeritage subscription, you'll definitely want to take advantage of this offer! I know I'll be giving the photo enhancer a try and I'll be colorizing some photos I missed the last time around.
