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:

As Internet genealogists we find an abundant amount of records online. Michael Hait wrote a wonderful blog post this week, Five Things you have to know about every record at Planting the Seeds.  A great reminder for many of us and great information for the beginner.
