There is a new blog I came across on the Illinois State Genealogical Society Blog called Chicago History Celebrating the Unique History and Culture of Chicago through Vintage Images. If you love Chicago History, take a look.
This week I read several great blog posts I would like to share with you.
Pawprints Guiding Me to the Past – Money Saving tips for requesting records. Melissa gives great tips on how to do genealogy without spending a lot of money.
Sassy Jane Genealogy – Tombstone Tuesday – Lt. George W. Owen Jr. This post has many great resources for obtaining WWII records. Read the comments for an additional source.
Dr. Bill Tell’s Ancestor Stories – Worldless (Nearly) Wednesday – Slate to Kindle. I love reading Dr. Bill’s posts and this one drew an interesting parallel between the old school slates to the new Kindle’s on the market today. This post reminded me to not only look at the “old” but “new” as well and try to make other connections like this.
AnceStories: The Stories of my Ancestors – FamilySearch Record Search News. Have you used FamilySearch yet? If not, they are adding many new records on a consistent basis. Check them out regularly because you might find something interesting that wasn’t there before!
