Follow Friday: This Week’s Favorite Finds

Actually, this post is two weeks of my favorite finds.  I was MIA last week, sledding with my kids at White Sands National Monument.  So. Much. Fun. :)  I’ve been very busy with my genealogy these past couple of weeks – mostly working on my Swedish roots, but also delving a bit into my husband’s New York lines as well.

On to my favorite finds:

  • This evening’s edition of Geneabloggers Radio is all about African-American Resources.  I don’t have any African-American roots myself (at least not that I’ve found yet!) but it still sounds interesting to me.
  • Hitler, Hindenberg, & Homeland over at Collecting dead relatives…and live cousins! was a great read.  I love old letters.
  • I also enjoyed the post Generational Length at Irish Genealogy.  It’s amazing how different lines can have such drastically different generational lengths, putting your various sets of great-great-greats at such different time periods.
  • Fi.fa. Fo Fum!  was a very helpful post over at The Legal Genealogist.  Legal mumbo-jumbo is hard enough to understand without abbreviations.:)
  • Happy Birthday to Marian and her twin over at the other Climbing My Family Tree.  I just love the picture of them in the pram.
  • Cherie, why didn’t I get invited over to partake in the Fastnachts?  They look delicious!! :)  Head over to Have You Seen My Roots?  to get the recipe.
  • Here are a couple of blogs I started following this week: Picking Up Breadcrumbs and Throwaway map.
  • I’ve put my Flip Pal Scanner to good use, but have yet to try stitching anything together yet.  Karen over at Genealogy Frame of Mind shows an example of a document she put together.  The results are great!

And some pictures to share:

    Jen, thanks so much for the shout-out and bday greetings! Glad to see you’ve taken some time off for winter fun. Very little winter here in southern New England these days–and that’s a good thing :) Stay well!ReplyCancel

    Thanks for the mention — and oh BOY do I love those pictures of your kids. The last one in particular is wonderful.ReplyCancel
