Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

The FamilySearch Tech Tips Blog had a post entitled “Understanding Maps.” This is a very useful post that looks at map terminology and using maps as finding aids. Every genealogist knows the how important understanding maps are to their research.

Greta’s Genealogy Blog had a post called “Things I Don’t Care About in Genealogy.” Greta lists ten things that she does not care about in genealogy such as family crests and having an Indian princess in her family tree.

The Enniskerry Local History Blog has a mystery to solve. They describe that mystery in their post called “Mystery Stone at Powerscourt.”

The FGS Conference News Blog had a posting entitled “My conference challenges to you” where they list nine challenges for everyone attending the conference. Some people attend a conference by just going to lectures. FGS are challenging you to meet new people and find new inspiration in a number of places.

Tech Tips had another post called “Restoring the Details on Damaged Photographs.” This is the final entry in a five part series on restoring photographs digitally.

Amy Coffin of The We Tree Genealogy Blog has a post entitled “If Genealogist Were In the Tabloids.” This is an entertaining look at what tabloids would talk about if genealogists were considered celebrities.

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