Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

The findmypast.ie blog has a post called “Irish Burial Records and Gravestones” where they look at the rituals for burials in Ireland.

Marian’s Roots and Rambles had two interesting posts this week. The first was “Heritage Gift: The Deck of Cards has Arrived.” She described in an earlier post how she designed a deck of cards using family photographs. Well the cards have arrived and now she tells us what she thinks of the whole process.

The other post is called “You’re Researching but Are You Reading?” which looks at the importance of reading about the research methods and the importance of the methodology books to genealogy.

Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter had a post called “Elizabeth Shown Mills’ New Website” where he talks about Elizabeth’s new website that has links to many articles she has written.

Chris Paton has decided to discontinue writing his Scottish GENES (GEnealogy News and EventS) blog. He will keep the blog online as an archive. You can read about the news and events of Scotland and Britain on his blog “British GENES (GEnealogy News and EventS)

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