This photograph was shared with me by a cousin on my Thornton line. It was in the same album as the pictures of James Patrick Thornton, which I posted last week.
This is Louisa (Pottgen) Thornton, my 3rd great-grandmother.
I just love that I can now put a face to her name.

    Again, what penetrating eyes! And a very steady face. That is some necklace, too!ReplyCancel

And there was an article on the 40 best blogs for genealogy.

And my blog is listed under “Story Time”!!

Yippee!!

You can check out all of the other great blogs on the list here.

    Congratulations! Wish we still had you here in El Paso. You are an asset to any genealogical society.ReplyCancel

    Barbara, I’m still in El Paso and will be for at least another year. I just haven’t been able to come to meetings this year, because my kids have scouts on Thursday nights. Everything is winding down for the year though and I hope to be able to start making meetings again!! :)

I haven’t done a Follow Friday in quite some time.  I’ve been so busy in the past few months with starting my photography business, that photos have been taking up most of my computer time.  If only there were more hours in the day.:)I’m thinking that I”m going to make this once or twice a month instead of every week.  That will give me more of a chance to peruse everyone’s blogs and websites.

Here are some recent reads I enjoyed…

1. Judy,  of The Legal Genealogist, always does such a great job of explaining the legal mumbo jumbo that most of us don’t understand.  A costly issue is a great post on bills of cost, which I have to admit I usually just file away without even really looking at.  Shame on me.

2. Is FamilySearch De-emphasizing Genealogical Research? over at Genea-Musings.  I have to agree that FamilySearch has gotten more confusing.

3.  I LOVE libraries!  And so should you at Gena’s Genealogy.   I love libraries too Gena!! :)

4. Thankful Thursday: Daniel D. Lightner, The Abolitionist Part 1 and Part 2 over at Leaves for Trees.

5. Cousin Wendy at Shaking Leaves found a family secret.  I love unearthing secrets.:)

And here are a few pictures from this past week:

    Thanks for the mention, Jenn. Great to see you back!ReplyCancel

  • Judy G. Russell, CG, CGL - April 19, 2013 - 4:53 pm

    Thanks so much for the mention, Jenn. Love the photos — my 9-year-old nephew did his science project on the “exploding” soda bottles so I knew exactly what the first shot was all about!ReplyCancel

    Thanks for the shout-out, Cousin Jennifer!ReplyCancel
