Follow Friday: This Week’s Favorite Finds

Another week is history.  It never ceases to amaze me how quickly time flies. I am writing this Thursday night and I just got back from my local genealogy society’s meeting.  We had a very interesting presentation on the Chinese in El Paso.  Apparently, we have the only Chinese cemetery in the state, which I thought was kind of neat.  I personally don’t have any Chinese roots and I have to say that I’m kind of thankful, because that looks like some difficult research!

Here are some of my favorite finds from this past week:

1. Sepia Saturday 133 – baby elephants? at Images Past

2. Three Today at Geniaus – Happy Blogiversary!!

3.  Hello, Old Blog! at Shaking Leaves: My Adventures in Genealogy

4. First Day of the Family History Expo and Day Two at the Expo at The Educated Genealogist

5. Spinster Aunts, Part One: Grace Duncan and Spinster Aunts, Part two: Ruth Esther Rockwood at Who Does She Think She Is?

6. The Moment I Knew, Linda’s Story at The Armchair Genealogist

7. Postcard from Paris, 1918 (Part 1 of 3) – Those Places Thursday at Heritage Zen

And a few pictures to share:

Nothing is growing yet.  I’m beginning to lose hope…

    Thanks for the shout out :-) I’ve never seen a Mexican Bird of Paradise flower before – very exotic, but I guess it wouldn’t survive in Scotland, sadly!ReplyCancel
