Friday Finds – 08/06/10

Weekly column sharing genealogy-related things that I’ve learned or found.

The majority of my week was spent looking into the history of a few New York counties, as well as references for the War of 1812 and the Revolutionary War.  So this week’s finds are books available online and website on these subjects.  But before I get into that, I did find an interesting article (posted on Facebook by Becky Jamison):  “Lives of the dead come to life on tombstones.”

Julie, thanks for the link to Becky Jamison's article. I can picture holographic movies popping up over tombstones as some future step, but it's amazing that we already have this much.
