Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

The Inside History blog has another Expert Q&A post called “Expert Q&A: How to research cemeteries in Sydney & NSW.” If you have people in this area then it is a good resource.

Now this is not a genealogy blog but the post was interesting. The Come Here to Me! blog is from Dublin Ireland. They had a posted called “Unusual Religions in the 1911 census.” The variety of different beliefs is wonderful. Who knew there were so many different beliefs in Dublin during that time period.

The In-Depth Genealogist blog has a post written by Jen Baldwin called “Filling the Void” where she found a void and decided to create something to fill it. Her new endeavour is very interesting.

    Dick Eastman’s article about backing up our data in more than one place is a good reminder. http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2012/11/back-up-your-data-wherever-it-is.html

    During Veterans’ Week, Elizabeth Lapointe ran a great series of posts in her blog, Genealogy Canada, about military sources and items of interest. While not genealogy-related, her post about dogs in the military was especially interesting. http://genealogycanada.blogspot.ca/2012/11/animals-in-war.html
