Follow Friday: This Week’s Favs

Another great week in the Genea-Blogosphere.  More fun links to share!

  1. I loved the Open Thread Thursday topic this week on Geneabloggers: Embedding Research Content on Your Blog or Website. It’s something that I’ve been pondering for quite some time.  I would love to have an easy way to share a few generations of a tree in a blog post – in a visually pleasing manner.:)
  2. I feel exactly the same way that Bill West, of West in New England, does.  So Many GEDCOMS, so Little Time.  How true.  I have records I copied from Virginia courthouses LAST MAY which I still haven’t transcribed, entered, and analyzed.  I still haven’t finished my DAR paperwork, and I have a tub full of papers to enter into my database.  I wish that there were more hours in each day.:)
  3. Did you know that New Zealand canceled their census this year, because of the recent earthquake?  How disappointing for future genealogists, searching for their ancestors. Alex, at Winging It, explains this in her post “No census for you“.
  4. Lisa, over at The Accidental Genealogist, has a list of blogging prompts inspired by Women’s History Month. Fearless Females: 31 Blogging Prompts to Celebrate Women’s History Month.  I think I might join in on a few of these later this month.
  5. Keep ‘em coming Wendy, keep ‘em coming. :)  My cousin Wendy over at Shaking Leaves, keeps posting about our shared ancestors and I love it!  This week, she posted John Newton Garriott and Jane Alen Reed’s marriage record.
  6. I can’t wait to read the next issue of Shades The Magazine.  There are many exciting changes being made, and there are opportunities for you to contribute! Head on over and check it out.
  7. I love how Lisa of Old Stones Undeciphered honored her female ancestors through 10 generations of pictures. What a neat idea!  She submitted it to this month’s Carnival of Genealogy over at Creative Gene.
  8. I encourage you to check out My Georgia Roots, a new blog started by Georgia Tim. :)  He has some great posts this past week!
  9. I loved Emily’s Genealogy Rules over at More Than Names.  So true!
  10. I took Deborah’s advice, and I added “Faces of America” to my Netflix queue.  Head over to Irish Genealogy: The Faery Folk Hid My Ancestors and read her review.

There won’t be a favorites post next week, as I will be enjoying myself in sunny Florida!!!:)
