Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

British and Irish Genealogy blog had a post called “10 Great History Quotes.” My favourite was the first quote listed.

The Genealogy in New South Wales blog had a post called “A Guide to early NSW Censuses and Musters” this is the first in a series on the subject and was very interesting reading.

British GENES (GEnealogy News and EventS) had a post called “Hogmanay and New Year newspaper stories” which originally came from the British Newspaper Archive. It looked at some of the historic events connected to this time of year.

The Family Recorder had a post called “2012- It’s going to be a Dickens of a year.” 2012 is the bi-centenary of the birth of Charles Dickens. She looks at her own history with his work and how fiction can help the family historian.

Other bloggers that write their own lists are:

Genea-Musings – Best of the Genea-Blogs

TransylvanianDutch – Week in Review

British and Irish Genealogy
