Follow Friday: This Week’s Favorite Finds

I made it through our first week of the homeschooling year!  I was worried there for a little while, because it’s hard to get back into the swing of things when you’ve had 4 months off.  {yes FOUR months}. I managed to do a bit of genealogy this week, despite my busy schedule.  A distant cousin on my husband’s side found my blog and contacted me.  I love it when that happens.  Also, I attended the local El Paso Genealogical Society’s  meeting last night.

Here are some of my favorite finds this week:

  • Tonight’s episode of Geneabloggers Radio is all about newspapers!  I have so many ancestors that lived in small towns – that I haven’t been able to find scanned newspapers of.  Maybe I’ll find some new resources, because I know that there is a lot of good information out there, just waiting to be found.
  • Read about how Carol Burnett helped Lori’s brother propose over at Genealogy and Me.  What a great story. 🙂
  • Karen over at Genealogy Frame of Mind found a very strange obituary.  Not for the faint of heart.
  • I enjoyed New Clues to an Old Mystery over at Leaves & Branches.
  • I think that it is so important to share any slave records we might find along our genealogical journey.  I really enjoyed the heartbreaking story of Margaret Lee’s Petition for Freedom over at Nolichucky Roots.
  • Congrats to Sheri, The Educated Genealogist.  Her blog turned three!!

And a few pictures from our first week of school…
