Follow Friday 18 June 2010

This week

Another rather abbreviated week; I think I got caught up on my blog reading after our trip to Middlebury, but probably missed some good things.

This week there have been many excellent posts on the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree; “Jamboree: Day 1 & Early Morning of Day 2” by Elyse Doerflinger of Elyse’s Genealogy Blog was especially touching. Congratulations, Elyse! Wish I could have been there to meet you and the other GeneaBloggers.

Renate at Into the Light has just completed her three-part series on “My Grandmother’s Loss”:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
It’s a wonderful series with many touching twists.

Another great Hero story from hummer at Branching Out Through the Years“The Hero and Two Gun Pete” (this one is a real “laugh out loud” story).

A thoughtful and funny post on how we feel about our ancestors, “It Doesn’t Matter,” from Caroline Pointer at Family Stories.

Read about an experience that must be familiar to most of us in “Mistakes are the portals of discovery” by Leah Kleylein at Random Notes. Humorous, educational, and oh-so-familiar!

Good news about Tennessee newspapers going online in Chronicling America project – covered at Taneya’s Genealogy Blog in “Historic Tennessee Newspapers Going Sigital & Online!” And Taneya is going to be a member of the Advisory Board - congratulations!

Daniel Hubbard’s post “A Memory Trip Down Any Lane” at Personal Past Meditations: A Genealogical Blog examines a fascinating resource: Sanborn insurance maps.

This week I started following these blogs:
