Friday finds – week 3 -2017

As usual I have spend some time this week reading other blogs on the interent. Here are some of them

1. I readily admit that I am not the worlds most well-organized person. When I come across articles about organization I read them in hopes to learn something. Thomas MacEntee at GeneaBloggers talks about this in his article Oh Say Can You “C”? Navigating the Seven Cs of Genealogy

2. I came across this little article by Janet Few in the blog The History Interpreter. The article is called  And in an Historical Household this Week…. I think it is fun to read what other bloggers are up to. Maybe I should write something like this one day? Or maybe not. My days are not that interesting.

3. Even though I deal with Norwegian genealogy, I think it is interesting to see what genealogists with no apparent ties to Norway does. Maybe most importantly how they think about and reason on the sources they deals with. One such article I have read this week is The Gaskells of Bollington by Daniel, the author of the blog, The Genealogy Corner.

4. In Norway we have the National library’s online collection. This collection is, unfortunally, only accesssible from Norwegian IP adresses. Over at the Genealogy’s Star blog I find a really interesting article by James Tanner about Expanded Access to Ebooks from the Digital Public Library of America. The article states that this collection as it is developed will contain books that will benefit genealogists

5. If one of my ancestors had been involved in criminal activities I would want to know it. Still in the blog Genealogy Star we find another article by James Tanner Was your ancestor a criminal? Criminal Law for Genealogists — Part One. In the Norwegian Digital archives we find such records under the heading “Legal Proceedings and Sanctions” These records also contain information about private lawsuits. I may write an article about this in the future.

6. Amie Bowser Tennant  at Lisa Louise Cooke’s Genealogy Gems shares some really interesting thoughts in her article Resolving Three Common Conflicting Evidence Problems in Genealogy She writes about how to weigh disagreeing or conflicting evidence. If you have not yet had the experience, you will find disagreeing evidence when you search Norwegian sources.

7. I finnish this weeks recommendation by a visit to Amy Johnson Crow’s blog. Her blogpost from last December is well worth to read: Top 10 Genealogy Tips: A Year-end Wrap Up

That wraps it up for now. I hope you enjoy the links. Even though I live in Norway, I can’t help noticing that there is something special going on over in Washington DC today.  I suppose there will be some newschannels there with a camera, so I might sit down and watch.

Have a great weekend!
