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:

What will the Google+ Project Mean for Genealogy? I have yet to venture into the world of Google+, saw it didn't really understand it, or should I say didn't take the time to understand  it. Randy shows us where to get up to date and how he things this will affect genealogy. 

Kimberly Powell offers a great article on geotagging your photos at Kimberly, the resident genealogy blogger at offers her post Tech-Tuesday Geotagging Photos from your Camera. I haven't taken a run at this task yet but Kimberly breaks it down in simple terms. I might give this a try on my upcoming trip to Montreal.
