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

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

Dear Myrtle offered a post this week that really convinced me that an iPad just may be the perfect tool for my genealogy research. Her post Mr. Myrt's Top Ten Reasons for Liking My iPad is inevitably a great sell on just why an iPad could simplify and organize your genealogy life. Now I just have to convince my husband. 

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

This week's mention goes to The Journey Takers blog. Leslie shares her advice on editing your family history story in her post One Simple Truth of Writing (or should I say editing).

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

This week  Marilyn's Genealogy Adventures caught my attention. Marilyn who refers to herself an 'old grandma' is a very impressive Geneablogger.  Marilyn loves the stories, and is sharing just how she discovered her family stories on her blog. Go Marilyn! I will be following. 

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: 

Two bloggers who pulled out a couple of recipes in honour of their Moms. 
The name isn't very appealing but  Skunk Creek Cabbage from Who's Your Granddaddy? certainly peaks your interest.

Shaking Leaves: My Adventures in Genealogy who shared her Mother's Recipe for Mexican Style Chicken Kiev. It sounds delicious. 
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.  Greta does a great job at Greta’s Genealogy Bog, she offers the Follow Friday Newsletter each week, click here for this week’s edition.

Have a great genealogy week, keep searching and writing!
