Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

The Professional Descendant had a post this week called “A Question of Religion” where she uses Poor Law records in the Paisley Local Studies Library. She looks at the question of “Religious Persuasion” in the records and the many different responses that were found.

Amy Coffin of the We Tree blog has launched her new EBook called “The Big Genealogy Blog Book.” Congratulations Amy!

The National Library of Ireland blog had an interesting post called “The Right Honourable John Philpot Curran” who was an Irish MP and barrister. During the library’s clean sweep they came across a book entitled “The speeches of the Right Honourable John Philpot Curran.” The book was published in London in 1847 and edited by Thomas Davis.

The Ancestry Insider had an interesting post called “Tree Decorators and Tree Growers” Which one are you? Or are you both?

Shauna Hicks of the Shauna Hicks Enterprises blog had a post for Remembrance Day entitled “Remembrance Day & My Two Grandfathers.” She looks at the contributions of her two grandfathers Henry Price and John Martin Gunderson.

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