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

Publishing and Platform an Interview with Christina Katz
Who is Buzzy Jackson? 

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:

Leaves for Trees, offers a great article....  Adding Source Information to Image File.  I really need to get on this. 

Lesson Learned: Back Up Your Blogs.....many of us learned this lesson this week. Lorine at Olive Tree Genealogy sums it up for us. There are also lots of suggestions in the comments on backing up your blog. 

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

This week's mention goes to Linda at the Family Archaeologist.  Linda and I share a love of writing our family stories. I have been following her grandparents courtship on her blog.  This week's post If You Love Me.... expresses the anguish Josef feels trying to convince Lisi  to join him in America. This is like reading a novel online, a great way to share your family history. 

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

No Descendants is a very moving and well thought out blog by Ancestor Detective. I encourage you to read her first post I have no Descendants, she starts with her autobiography written when she was 11 years old.  Her post to her Mother, The Plant Lady is also a great read. 

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: 

Ah, Blueberry Cheescake is a standout recipe this week. Served up by My Ancestors and Me, this recipe comes with a wonderful memory as well. 
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!
