It was a light week for my own postings, having had oral surgery for a wisdom tooth, I was a little too overcome by medication to write anything coherent. However my down time allowed me the opportunity to do a lot of blog reading this week. 

At the Armchair Genealogist this week, posts included the following: 

From the Archives.......

Online Genealogy Job - Great Opportunity for a Genealogy Blogger - the job has been filled, Congrats Tami Glatz! 

Each week I’m choosing four blogs that deserve a shout out, they will be in the form of 4 categories, Internet Genealogy, Family History Writing, a New Blog and a blog that posted a great old-fashioned family recipe.

This week I'm adding a blog post I think is outstanding.... Seth really does think outside of the box. I think my genealogy friends would agree we are all a little worried about the future of our libraries and thus librarians. In Seth's Blog, his post  The future of the library ... gives me hope and perhaps a few librarians may sit up and take note.
