Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

Kerry Scott of Clue Wagon wrote “In Which I Am Accosted By A Skeleton At 3 a.m.” where a cold and the desire not to disturb her husband’s sleep led to an all nighter and a discovery that may answer a few questions after a little more research.

Melissa Donovan of Writing Forward has a post entitled “9 Journal Writing Tools and Resources” where she shares online resources for journaling. The focus is on creativity and writing.

The Ancestry Insider has a post called “Coming Soon to a FamilySearch.org Near You.” They talk about the upcoming features of familysearch.org that were discussed at the 2011 BYU Family History Conference.

The Genealogy Insider blog is associated with Family Tree Magazine in the United States. They have a post entitled “Your Advice for Organizing Family Archives” which provides a list of reader’s suggestions on organizing your archival material.

The NLI Blog has a post written by Bean An Phoist called “Wanted: One strong, healthy young Man.” It takes a look at some of the newspapers to be found in the National Library of Ireland, the exciting find and acquisition of previously unknown issues of the “Nenagh News” and the fun to be had reading advertisements found in old newspapers.

The GenWriter, Julie Cahill Tarr, has a post this week called “4 Resources for Writing Your Family History” where she looks at three publications and a video to help you with the process.

Are there any postings in the last week that you think need to be on this list? Let me know in the comments below.

    You are welcome Kerry. Your posts make me smile. It is a reminder that going in and “playing” on a site can sometimes provide wonderful discoveries.
