Recent  Posts include: 



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. OK some weeks I choose more than 4 just because it to hard to pick just one, and it's my blog so I can change the rules. 

Internet Genealogy – a great genealogy or internet tip that will benefit any armchair genealogist
This week’s mention:

Definitely this little website, 1DollarScan is a worthwhile bookmark for all genealogists. I learned about it this week from Dick Eastman, in his post Scan and Digitize Your Books for $1.00. Prepare to be amazed!


Writing Your Family History – great advice or information on writing your family history
This week’s mention

In Stories to Tell this week, I learned about Bruce Bothwell, who turned his father's journals as a hobo in the 1920's into a print book.Publishing Journals and Letters with Bruce Bothwell is a great podcast about his experience in the writing and self-publishing world. Learn from his mistakes and be sure to look up his book, On the Tramp. 


Julie at GenWriter shared with us this week another great post, 4 Resources for Writing Your Family History which include 3 books and a webinar. 




New Genealogy Blog – we will tip our hat to a newcomer who impresses us right out of the box
This week’s mention:  

I love, love, love the premise of this blog, The Brick Wall Protocol. This is great for those of us who need some advanced help with our brick walls. The steps are laid out very clearly so you can easily apply them to your own situation. I'm giving it a try on my Irish roadblock. Jerry Jones is the author of multiple blogs and clearly has thought this out very carefully, it has a clear purpose. At the risk of repeating myself, Love it Jerry. 


Family Recipe - a blog that makes us want to eat, and offers up a great old-fashioned family recipe to share on Family Recipe Friday.
This week's mention: 

Mountain Genealogists always has great recipes to share and this iced tea recipe by Grandma Bean is no exception. I'm going to give it a try only thing I'm missing is the big ol' porch swing. 

You can find more newcomers at Thomas' list of New Genealogy Blogs at Geneabloggers.  


For other great reads, Randy at Genea-Musings offers the Best of the Genea-Blogs. 


 Stop by the Week in Review by John at Transylvanian Dutch for another great round-up. 

Have a great genealogy week, keep researching and writing!

Lynn,
We love reading the Armchair Genealogist.
Thanks for mentioning our Stories To Tell Podcast.
We really enjoyed being able to share the experiences of Bruce Bothwell in turning his father's journals into a book. We hope learning about his experiences will help others who are creating their own family histories.
