Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

Claire Santry of Irish Genealogy News had the best news this week with a post called “1926 Census gets green light.” This is an important census as it is the first one done under home rule and the first census since 1911 as the 1921 census was cancelled.

She had a post called “New social and historical topics on AskAboutIreland.” Askaboutireland has added new information regarding Irish cooking, farming and arts and literature.

The ACPL blog had a great post called “10 Tips for Researching at ACPL” which is a good resource for anyone going to the Allen County Public Library Genealogy Centre in Fort Wayne Indiana.

The NLI blog had a post called “Newspaper Descriptors Project” which describes the latest project of the National Library of Ireland and Newspaper & Periodical History Forum of Ireland. They are providing short descriptors for the newspaper titles in the National Library’s newspaper database. This information will be invaluable to anyone using the newspaper database.

Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings has a post called “Individual RootsTech 2012 Videos Available Now” where he provides a list of the talks that are now available.

Chris Paton of British GENES (British Genealogy News and Events) has a post called “First WDYTYA Live talk goes online.” The Society of Genealogists is putting recordings of talks given at their workshops online.

The ActiveHistory.ca blog had an interesting post called “History vs. Geography and Sourcemap.com” which looks at the importance of geography to history. He looks at blending geography and history using sourcemap.com.
