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:

Need some tips on scanning, check out ScanFest is Coming by AnceStories; The Stories of My Ancestors. Miriam explains what ScanFest is, and offers some solid basic tips for scanning. Although Scanfest was this past Sunday,  Miriam offers a replay here, so you can get familiar and ready for the next one.

My Ancestors and Me shares a wonderful find this week. Nancy shares a cookbook that belonged to her grandmother and written in her grandmother's own hand. Her post  Her Websters Spelling Recipe Book - Cover and Page 1,  shares a couple of recipes from page one of the book. I think I will try the Soft Ginger Bread cookies. Looking forward to see the rest of the book.
