Google acknowleges it's into genealogy!

Wow! Catch this genealogy announcement for today? Though be warned, the news release  quoted is dated  - 1 April 2016.

Alphabet Inc. (Google's parent) has purchased Dick Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter. Dick's article quotes Google's CEO, Larry Page, as saying: "It’s a great time to be in the genealogy business."

Indeed! Any time is good for genealogy, so likely for the business part too.  Read Dick Eastman's full article here:

I look forward to seeing genealogy Google Doodles. Love those Google Doodles!  Has there ever been a genealogy related one? Please let me know. I don't remember any.

(Written in Birmingham, England. First full day of my genealogy holiday here. More about that later.)
