My fellow family history bloggers have been busy this week. There are so many great genealogy blogs out there (over 2,000, I'm told!). I wish I had time to read them all. Meanwhile, here are some of the blog posts that caught my eye, and my imagination, this week. Enjoy!
Randy Seaver at Genea-Musings reminds us that, in honor of the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, Ancestry.com is making available -- for FREE -- their Civil War collection of records. He's also been busy sharing his own Civil War treasures, which are so interesting.
Lynn at the Armchair Genealogist has tipped us off that Family Tree Magazine is looking for some family recipes and their stories. I'm thinking that my Aunt Rae's Crabby Potato Salad is worthy of submission.
I'm trying to figure out a way to go on the Welsh Heritage Tour that Roots Traveler writes about. I have cousins in Cardiff, and I'm DYING to meet them!
My cousin, Jennifer, over at Climbing My Family Tree writes about why she loves having Swedish roots. Got me thinking about why I love my Danish/English/Welsh/German roots. =)
The Hibbit Family History Blog offers some Victorian-era tips for housecleaning. My favorite: "Servants are no quicker than we are, and we should know for ourselves exactly how long it takes to do every household task, so that we need not allow laziness, or expect too much from those we employ." Oh, my...Please be sure to check out these great blogs and tell the writers how much you enjoy their stories!
I also loved the picture of Becky's ADORABLE Grandmom doing a little spring cleaning on Barking up our Family Tree.
