We continue to invest in FamilyTreeCircles improvements, and the latest is a new post type for Lookup Requests. Most of the posts on FamilyTreeCircles are actually this, and by segmenting them, I think we can increase the quality of all posts.

We now have Journals, Questions, and Lookup Requests, all color coded so you can easily tell them apart in the various places to view posts. And if you have questions, lookup requests, or stories to share, please do!
