And once again; Some websites I have visited
I am starting out this week with a problem I have experienced myself; I wish I had known to ask questions sooner. In the A family Tapestry blog, Jacqi Stevens writes Life’s Too Short; Ask Questions Sooner
In her blog Genealogy Girl Talks, Melissa Dickerson invites us to tell about how we got into genealogy. I assume we all had different reasons for starting our research. Read Melissa’s article HOW DID YOUR GENEALOGY JOURNEY BEGIN?
Diane Enger Snell, in the blog Genealogy is an Obsession, share a lot of interesting stories about her family who emigrated from Norway. As I was looking for a person that travelled on the emigrant ship Hannah Parr, Diane pointed me to her story. The Hannah Parr left Norway in April 1868 and was battered in a storm just off the coast of Limerick, Ireland. I am not going to spoil anything so I just suggest you read the story The Tragedy and Triumph of the “Hannah Parr”
In the Citizen TRIBUNE I found this article by Alexis Beckstead where she tell about how her idea for a museum got started. Read her story in Genealogy Gems: Treasures found in the DUP collection of pioneer artifacts
