At the Armchair Genealogist this week, posts included the following:

Monday Morning Mentions
Tuesday's Tip - Geneablogger's Radio
Take the Challenge - Write Your Family History in 29 Days

Internet Genealogy – a great genealogy or internet tip that will benefit any armchair genealogist.
This week’s mention: 

Judy Russell at The Legal Genealogist brings us a great three part post this week. How Old Did Folks Have to Be? Part 1 , How Old Did Folks Have to Be? Part 2  and How Old Did Folks Have to Be? Part 3. If you're trying to put an age to your ancestor, Judy's knowledge of Colonial charters, statutes and common law can definitely aid in your research. I found this fascinating stuff. Judy's really making me think outside the box. 

And if you want a quick lesson in DNA, and really this was one I could understand, Judy's post  A Relative Match...Or Maybe Not  was every bit as interesting and informative.

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

Finding Truth in Fiction: The Power of Creative Storytelling. This post is written by Max Andrew Dubinsky. Max wrote this guest post on Jeff Goin's blog this week. In light of our Family History Writing Challenge starting next week, this post really resonated with me and I hope it does with you as well. 

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

Barry's Blog is the official blog of My Genshare developed by Barry Ewell. Currently Barry's Blog has several great videos to assist the family historian.Check out this week's vlog Why Digital Preservation is Important to You

Sarah from the Geneapprentice has started a new website GeneaJobs where you can search or post genealogy jobs and volunteer opportunties. Nice work Sarah! 

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.

  In 8 days, Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak will release her newest book Hey, America, Your Roots Are Showing . Her third book, I personally am looking forward to reading the inside stories behind Megan's most fascinating cases. It's available for pre-order, in both print and digital. You can learn more about Megan at Honoring Your Ancestors.
