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. 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
