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 and book community.

Help, Which Genealogy Conference Should I Choose? 
Genealogy Jobs - Research Director 

Each week I’m choosing blogs that deserve a shout out, they will be in the form of 3 categories, Internet Genealogy, Family History Writing, a New Genealogy Blog . I will also highlight a book either print or ebook that I feel lends itself well to researching and writing family history. 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: 

No man is an island, and neither is a genealogist. Thomas MacEntee teaches us How to Collaborate with Other Genealogists at

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

This week Polish and Publish, Tools and Tactics for Creative Writers, by Lynette Benton is featuring our own Linda Gartz from Family Archaeologist in a two part guest post on writing your family history. 

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

This week checkout Extreme Ancestry. A well written blog by Karen Batchelor who brings a long and varied genealogy history to the online genealogy community.  

Books that Move and Matter - each week we will feature an ebook or print book with the family historian in mind. It may come as a great source of information, for research or writing or playing to our historical interests, or may just be a great read I think genealogists will love. 

This week's mention:
