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
This week’s mention:

I really enjoyed Betsy Cross' post Why is Family History So Easy? Betsy reflects on how people get in the way of their own progress and the fear of the commitment to the project. I feel the same way about those who procrastinate when it comes to writing their family history book. Regardless Betsy shares her biggest obstacle, getting organized. Check it out on her blog Remember

Michael Hyatt offers a wonderful tool for bloggers. If your a genealogy blogger looking for a organizational tool Michael shows you how he uses Evernote as his "blogging workbench" in his post How to Use Evernote as a Blogger

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