Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.
The Irish Story blog has a post called “War and Famine in Ireland, 1580-1700” and it is the first in a series of posts by John Dorney on “how war provoked famine and massive population loss and aided conquest in early modern Ireland.”
The Family Recorder has a post called “Those Places Thursday – it’s not where you think it is” which looks at the anomalies of place names and what you need to look for when doing your research.
Greta’s Genealogy Blog has a post about apps and other obstacles called “How NOT to Jump-Start Your Genealogy.” It provides a humourous look at the things that can get in the way of our research. I have the cat problem Greta, especially around dinner time.
