Weekly column sharing genealogy-related things that I’ve learned or found.
Life From the Roots – This is a new-to-me blog authored by Barbara Poole. I have no idea how I missed this one, as this blog has been around since June 2009 and I’ve been friends with Barbara via Facebook for some time. At any rate, she left a comment on my blog last week and I found her blog through that comment. We have many states in common in our research…maybe one day our paths will cross!
The Shy Genealogist – This is another new-to-me blog, that again, I found through a comment posted on my blog. I must have been asleep in mid-2009, as this one has been around since May 2009. Lisa writes a column called “Working it Wednesday,” which features genealogy tutorials.
My Ancestors and Me – Boy, I really did fall off the face of the earth in mid 2009. This is yet another blog I came across through a comment on my blog. This one is authored by Nancy. There’s a lot of neat stuff here, so be sure to check it out.
Finding an ancestor's arrival in Canada before 1865 – Written by Lorine over at Ask Olive Tree Genealogy a Question. This article will come in handy as I have a few people who were in Canada prior to 1865.
Why Can’t You Get It Right? – The Ancestry Insider wonders why genealogy programs don’t have an “Evidence Management” feature. I gotta say, I’m with him on this one. This is something that is lacking and needs to be addressed. I like to have everything in one place (i.e. one program) as opposed to something in Legacy, notes in Word or OneNote, lists in Excel, etc. I’ve found a work-around to contain everything (for the most part) in Legacy, but it’s not the greatest solution. I wonder if any of the major players are looking at such a feature…
