Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

Marian’s Roots & Rambles had a post called “A Simple Gift for Non-Crafty Family Historians” where she takes you through the process of creating a deck of cards for the family historian.

She also had a post called “Analyzing Records from Family Bibles” where she looks at the information found in her new acquisition of the Edwards family bible.

The Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society blog had a post entitled “Unregistered Cemeteries in Ontario” where they are calling on people to contact the Ontario government to change the laws relating to unregistered cemeteries. They are also calling on people to look for unregistered cemeteries in their area and to put them on the list so that they are not overlooked in the future.

The Society of Genealogists blog had a post called “The British Newspapers Archives is now available online” where they look at what can be found and how to search the records.

Geneabloggers started their Christmas Advent blog posts on December 1st. There is a different theme posted every day. If you have ancestors from down under in Australia then you might find the Advent posts of Cassmob and Geniaus of interest.

Greta of Greta’s Genealogy Blog is presenting this year’s theme in her own unique way.

The Family History Writing blog has a post called “The Importance of Review and Revisit” which reminds us to go back and look at the old photographs that are just sitting in a box and see if we can find out something new about them.

The Family Recorder has a post called “Cause papers 1300-1858: disputes in the north of England” which looks at the records that were created through the “diocesan courts in the Archbishopric of York.” If you have someone in the north of England then you might want to have a look at these records that now have an online searchable catalogue.

Are there any postings in the last week that you think need to be on this list? Let me know in the comments below.
