Monday Mentions: More blog posts of interest


As I mentioned I’ve been trying to catch up with my blog reading and have come up with more posts which I found interesting and/or impressive. If you haven’t read them you may also find them useful.

Julie (Angler’s Rest) announces the Society of One Place Studies.

Kim from KK Genealogy has written a wonderfully evocative piece for the Book of Me’s Prompt 9 on Time Capsules.

Alona (Lone Tester) suggests we should check out Facebook for the myriad local history pages that are blossoming there.

Have you ever pondered the meaning of cousins once removed etc? Wonder no more, as this post explains it quite simply.

Want to know how to use Digital Imagery as a Tool for Historical Research? Follow the Archives Outside link on this topic.

Or tips on photo management from Genealogy’s Star.

A sad reminder on the Return of Childhood Killers by Historians are Past Caring. If you doubt their impact on families in recent memory, you should read Catherine’s personal story on Vaccinations.

One Cool Site’s Timethief, suggests how we can craft quality blog comments.

John from Canada’s Anglo-Celtic Connections (revamped title) has some interesting links for us on Welsh records, an interactive 19th century London map, and the UNESCO Memory of the World project.

Clare County Library: New History of Corofin Parish will appeal to anyone with ancestors from that area.

And then there’s James Tanner’s Genealogy’s Star blog: I’m not going to pick out any one post. If you don’t follow James’s posts, why not go over and have a look. It’s rare for me to find one that doesn’t make me think.

From a Facebook post by Inside History: Google tools you didn’t know existed ….I certainly didn’t.

For my fellow grammar fiends, this article recommended by Liv Hambrett is intriguing. English really isn’t the same everywhere.

Hope you find some of these mentions useful or just plain interesting reading.
