Monday Morning Mentions

Monday Morning Mentions is an opportunity to reflect on what has been happening at the Armchair Genealogist this past week over my morning cappuccino and give a nod to some of my peers who captured my attention in the blogging community.

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:

The big news in the internet genealogy circles this week has to be Google+. As we all try to get a handle on how we can make Google+ work for our genealogy circle, some have made some great inroads.  The Ginger Jewish Genealogist has a wonderful article, Google+ vs Facebook vs Twitter - 10 Things.  A great place to start learning.  Then jump over to Dear Myrtle's Genealogy Blog and join her Google+ Webinar, it continues on Monday July 18th, and Tuesday July 19th. There's still time to join in. 

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

Writing Stories from Your Life  and Supercharge Your Life Stories with these Ideas, are two great posts offering some great support to my own post this week on Everyone Has a Story to Tell.  Both come by way of Lynette Benton at  Polish and Publish, Tactic and Tools for Creative Writers.

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

Tales of an Aspiring Family Historian is off to a wonderful start. Motivated to learn more about her ancestors the author has started a lovely blog to document her journey. 

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: 

Strawberry Dream Pie sounds pretty yummy, a family favorite  from TJLGenes: Preserving Our Family HIstory. I'm sure it will be just as nice with anyone of the fresh fruits during this harvest season. 

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!
