Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from the last few weeks.

John Grenham had an interesting post called “Make sure they don’t die.” He looks at the importance of preserving family stories and how one family who had several siblings who emigrated are trying to find out about the two that were left behind.

If you have ancestors from Saskatchewan who were Catholic then the FamilySearch Blog has a post you might find interesting. “Announcing Saskatchewan Catholic Church Records on Family Search” promotes the release of these records on FamilySearch. The dates range from 1846 to 1957. The post provides you with a little background information of the Catholic Church in Saskatchewan.

The genealogyinsider blog has a post called “Time-Saving Tips for Busy Genealogists.” We are all busy genealogists and any advice is helpful.

Claire Santry of the Irish Genealogy News blog has two interesting posts. The first is “On the record: last month’s Genealogy Hedge School” where she talks about the HistoryIreland Hedge School that is held at the National Library of Ireland. Their topic was “Genealogy: Who Does It Think It Is?” She provides a link so you can listen to the discussion between several well-known Irish genealogists.

The other post is “1908 Dublin City Electoral Roll released.” This is the latest release from the Dublin City Library and Archives which is available on their free database.

Chris Paton of the British GENES blog also had two interesting posts. The first is “Coming soon – Lord Morpeth’s Testimonial Roll.” Chris was able to beta test this database and has a few links to explanations of what Lord Viscount Morpeth’s Testimonial Roll actually is all about.

The second of Chris’ posts is “Discover Your Ancestors – new bookazine and magazine.” Here he talks about the release of the second annual bookazine called “Discover Your Ancestors.” The demand was so great that they are now launching an online magazine as well as the bookazine. You can find out more by reading Chris’ post.
