Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

Library and Archives Canada Blog has a post announcing that “Lester Bowles Pearson Images Now on Flickr.” I remember Lester B. Pearson as Prime Minister. He won a Nobel Peace Prize for his suggestion to the United Nations about a peacekeeping force to help prevent issues during the withdrawal of British, French and Egyptian forces from the Suez Canal. Pearson was Prime Minister during Canada’s Centennial celebrations and Expo ’67 in Montreal.

Randy Seaver of the Genea-Musings blog wrote an “eBook Review – My Family History Toolbox, by Paul Larson.” This sounds like an interesting addition to the genealogist’s library.

Fiona Fitzsimons, of Eneclann, continues with her informative expert series on the findmypast.ie blog with a post called “Griffith’s Valuation, the gateway to Irish research.”

The National Archives Blog has a post on the subject of biodiversity in the area surrounding The National Archives called “Swanning around…” I love these posts because it shows that the archives is not just an edifice where records are preserved, they preserve the area surrounding their building as well.

Cassmob of the Family history across the seas blog has a post called “Insights into Australia: a book list.” Here she provides a list of reading materials to help you understand your ancestor’s experiences living in Australia.
