Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

The Findmypast.ie blog had an interesting post called “Traditional Irish naming patterns” written by Fiona Fitzsimons of Eneclann. If you have Irish ancestry this is something you definitely have to keep in mind. She uses a case study as an example.

The Ancestry Insider had a post called “Ancestry.com’s Vital-ity” where they share some interesting finds in a new release of databases.

Marian Pierre-Louis of Marian’s Roots and Rambles had a post called “The Mystery Heirloom has Arrived!” Don’t we all wish we had an heirloom like that arrive at our door!

Amy Coffin of The We Tree Genealogy Blog has shared her experiences in self publishing The Big Genealogy Blog Book with a post called “Self Publishing Your Genealogy Work: My Experience.”

The Untold Lives blog of the British Library had a post this past week called “Indian princess in suffragette march” Princess Sophia Duleep Singh was a member of the Women’s Social and Political Union and was a well-known suffragette. This is part of her story.

This week is Thanksgiving for my US readers so here is “A History of the Humble Pumpkin Pie” from Christina Morin at Pue’s Occurrences The Irish History Blog.

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