Follow Friday – August 4, 2012

I sure spend a lot of time reading on the internet these days. I hear it’s bad for my health, but I enjoy it!

This week I spent a little time exploring Finding Eliza. Not only does Kristin have an interesting family, but I enjoyed the creative ways that she presents her family history.

Nancy at My Ancestors and Me provided this tip for reading nearly every issue of Harper’s Weekly published between 1861 and 1865.

I do indeed have a lot that I need to “tame” around here, so I’ll be keeping up with Marian’s Roots and Rambles for the series “Taming All That Information!”

More resources to read – Tangled Trees led me to a digital library of local and trade directories for England and Wales…. although I’ve only had time for a peek to see if there were any from County Durham.  There were.

And this. Every time Brad Buchholtz has a piece in the Austin American Statesman, I am taken in by his writing. As a transplanted Texan, one who has visited Camp Rio Vista with Girl Scouts, similarly remembers the assassination of JFK and his brother Robert, and has found solace in nature, it hit home on several levels.
