Follow Friday: This Week’s Favs

I can’t believe that March is almost over!  The days are starting to fly by so quickly.  It feels like summer here in Savannah. The temps have been in the 80’s and my kids have pulled the squirt guns out.

I have to admit that I’m getting really excited about the upcoming NGS Conference in May!!  Are you going to be there? I’d love to meet some other geneabloggers there!!

Despite another birthday party (my son turned 5 this week) and a full week of homeschooling (we’re trying to finish 3 months of schoolwork in the 5 weeks before the movers show up…), I managed to find some great reads this week!  Enjoy.:)

  1. Randy Seaver’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun was an entertaining one this week.  I enjoyed Caro’s Family Chronicles’ contribution to the Genealogisms.
  2. I am so jealous of my cousin Wendy at Shaking Leaves.  She got a new toy that I’ve been drooling over for months now – a Flip Pal.  I will gift myself with one sometime in the near future!! Check out her review
  3. Please head over to my friend Amy’s blog, Hunting Dead People and give her a big blog hug.  She was living in Japan when the earthquakes hit and chose to come back to the States this past week with her baby.  While she’s glad to be out of a scary situation, she left her husband and her dog in Japan.:(
  4. I enjoyed Heather’s post (at Leaves for Trees) about a Cure for genealogy ADD. I think that a lot of us can understand! (I grew up watching Seasame Street too by the way!)
  5. You have to go to My Ancestors and Me and read Nancy’s post about Beautiful Emma and Her Lovely Waist.  She posted a beautiful picture and some great research into the fashion of the time period.
  6. Earlier this week, I made my blogs mobile friendly after reading this blog post at Find My Ancestors Blog.  It works!  I can open my blogs on my iPhone and a mobile version appears instead of the graphics heavy version which takes forever to open on my phone.
  7. Bill West over at West in New England sent out a reminder for his Civil War Genealogy Blog Challenge.  I think I might jump in on this one, since I had family who fought on both sides.

    Wendy’s review of the flip-pal made me jealous too! I love the portability of it.

    Thanks Jenn – I am starting to get back into the genealogy research… just so busy with the adjustment. Such a shock… ya know? And still at a brick wall in research.. grrr! Why did I think it would be fun to dedicate one year to one surname? LOL! Well… at least I can research without aftershocks!ReplyCancel
