Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

Dick Eastman’s blog had a post called “File Naming Tutorial” which talks about a free online four part video tutorial about the importance of file naming and how to do it. It is presented by the State Library of North Carolina.

The blog for Inside History magazine in Australia has a post called “The day my ancestor met Charles Darwin” which is a wonderful story.

Findmypast Ireland has a post called “The Representative Church Body Library (part 1).” I would highly recommend anyone doing Church of Ireland research to read these articles.

Chris Paton of British GENES (Genealogy News and EventS) has a post called “Fasti Ecclesiae Scoticanae improved on Internet Archive.” This is a great resource for Scottish researchers.

Other bloggers that write their own lists are:

Genea-Musings – Best of the Genea-Blogs

TransylvanianDutch – Week in Review
