Follow Friday: This Week’s Favs

This week’s favorite posts:

  1. We’ve all seen some pretty bad spelling as we read through old documents.  I’ve never personally come across a Dorset accent though.  Wow.  Check out Caroline’s post A Strong Dorset Accent at Caro’s Family Chronicles.  I won’t complain about spelling ever again!
  2. I was so excited to read Those Places Thursday: Down on the Edwardian Farm over on Hibbitt Family History Blog.  I am a nerd and I love PBS/BBC shows.  I watched 1900 House and Frontier House and Colonial House and Texas Ranch House.  I think I watched one about WWII in England also.  I really don’t watch as much TV as it sounds.  I actually don’t even have cable/satellite.  Anyway, apparently there is another show that I now need to watch – Edwardian Farm!  Now I just need to figure out how to watch it, since I don’t get BBC Two.
  3. I have to mention Wendy’s post Wedding Wednesday: Milton Price Brittain & Nancy Garriott.  I love reading posts about my own ancestors. :)  I am descended through Milton & Nancy’s daughter Mathilda Jane Brittain.
  4. Cherie at Have You Seen My Roots? makes me so jealous with her seemingly neverending collection of funeral cards.  Her latest funeral post is A Double Rosbeck Whammy
  5. I loved Jo’s post Sports Center Saturday – NO SPEEDOS!  at Images Past. She has some wonderful old photos and a great sense of humor.:)

    Thanks for pointing out these posts. I would have missed every one of them. I was hoping to be able to tell you that “Edwardian Farm” is available on DVD. It may be but my local library doesn’t have it yet. I’m looking forward to viewing it if I can find a copy.ReplyCancel
