This Week

An interesting research challenge is presented in "Divining faiths" at Nolichucky Roots: How to learn whether or not certain ancestors were Catholics, especially in places where public Catholic worship was not allowed?

At Roots and Rambles, Marian Pierre-Louis passes on an important lesson she learned from a CD history course: “Prove Genealogy Backwards, Read History Forward.”

Many ethnic churches have been closed or will soon be closed, and others are losing their ethnic nature. Jasia at Creative Gene has been writing a series highlighting the background of some of these beautiful churches, "The Polish Catholic Churches of Detroit."

Some information we should all know and give some consideration to is presented in the post “Wisdom Wednesday: Top Ten Considerations for Donating Your Family Papers” at Sassy Jane Genealogy.

At Karen About Genealogy, Karen Packard Rhodes discusses “When it is Difficult to do Family History” – inspired by a tragedy that compels us to take a different perspective on black sheep ancestors.

And finally, presented for your consideration:

“Intentional Acts of Genealogical Terrorism with an Accomplice” at Hayley.

“Intentional Acts of Genealogical Terrorism” at Genea-Musings

“Intentional Acts of Genealogical Terrorism” at The Research Journal

Oh frabjous day, hoorah, hooray! Terry Snyder, The Desktop Genealogist Unplugged, is back at it!
