Bridgett Schneider and RAOGK

Dick Eastman's Genealogy Blog carried sad news today about the death of genealogist Bridgett Schneider, the creator of Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK).

This extremely valuable website, which is run by a system of volunteers, helped me immensely in retrieving priceless information I could not have obtained any other way.  The last time I planned to demonstrate RAOGK in a class, I was disappointed to discover it was missing.

RAOGK might return some day.   In the meantime, some people are helping individuals through the RAOGK Facebook page.   But Bridgett Schneider will be greatly missed.
