Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

Marian’s Roots & Rambles has a post called “Think – Plan – Execute” which is the first in a series of posts. She begins by looking at “Thinking it through.” This is a series that everyone should read.

British GENES (British Genealogy News and EventS) has a post about the new National Archives of Ireland website and their new online catalogue. He isn’t happy with some of the changes. Learn more about his challenges in finding databases that were easier to find on the old website rather than the new catalogue in the post “Using the new National Archives of Ireland catalogue.”

The Ancestry Insider had a post called “Jack Reese: Advanced Photographic Techniques” that looks at the difficulties of digitizing documents and some of the techniques to improve the image quality.

The Help Me With My Family Tree… blog has a post called “Brick Walls in Family Tree Research” that provides an alternate way of breaking those walls down.

Geniaus was one of the official bloggers at RootsTech last week. She has post called “My foray into film at Rootstech” where she interviews Darrin Lythgoe the developer of TNG genealogy software.

Several bloggers have provided a synopsis of the RootsTech conference. You can view them at British & Irish Genealogy, Genea-musings and The Family Recorder.

Stardust ‘n’ Roots has a post called “RootsTech Learning #1 – Ancestral Lines Pairing System” where he looks at the new number system designed by Ancestral Lines.

The Findmypast.ie blog has part 2 of their series on the Representative Church Body Library.

Brenda Dougall Merriman has a post called “Loyalists: Eligibility – Common Sense or Splitting Hairs?” It is the latest in her series on Loyalist ancestors.

The Reclaiming Kin blog has a posted called “Phillip Holt is Not Dead After All.” This post is a reminder to all of us to go back and review our research.
