Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

Genealogy Canada had a post called “TONI Is Growing Everyday!” TONI is The Ontario Name Index. The Ontario Genealogical Society is trying to create an index of every name found in any publication relating to Ontario.

Grow Your Own Family Tree has a post called “Ancestry launches Web Search in the UK.” They say that “Ancestry.co.uk has begun to index databases from other UK websites via Web Search.”

Geniaus has a post called “Clear Advice – Maybe not.” In this post she looks at using Evernote to take the place of Delicious.

The NLI blog has a post called “The Freeman’s Journal” It is the third in series of posts relating to the joint venture of the National Library of Ireland and the Newspaper & Periodical History Forum of Ireland. This post looks at the history of the Freeman’s Journal. It is important to know the history of a newspaper when you are doing newspaper research.

The Active History blog has a post this week called “Speak, Recipe: Reading Cookbooks as Life Stories.” I have always enjoyed reading cookbooks. This post provides a whole different outlook to the treasured and often ignored cookbooks found in kitchens around the world.
