A rather short list today.

In case you're wondering how I make these lists, I will explain.  I have several different genealogy softwares that I use.  Mostly I use MyHeritage's Family Tree Builder, but I also use Legacy and RootsMagic, and I use's online tools.  It's RootsMagic that I have used to generate these lists.  It has a number of reporting functions built in that extract data from your files and present it as needed, and one of those reports is this "On This Day" listing.  I have been using RootsMagic 5.  Today, however (2013 for those reading later) marks the first time I am using the new RootsMagic 6, which was released a couple of months ago.  I am pleased to find this report still present and unchanged in how it's used.
