In Climbing My Family Tree I share stories of my ancestors as I discover them, so the posts are sporadic. My family history is a work in progress, and I might have to backtrack occasionally if (when) I make mistakes, so if we share a branch or two I encourage you to double check the research sources rather than accepting mine wholesale. I hope you enjoy reading my posts and will visit often to find new posts. I enjoy sharing them with you!
I’m going to make this a weekly series. For me, NoteWorthy Reads are articles,
websites, or blog posts I found this week which are fascinating, interesting and/or
helpful (and occasionally “wacky” or “wonderful” will likely sneak in as well).
It’s not going to be a “best of” post because I don’t have the knowledge to
make that determination. I don’t even promise that the articles & blog posts
will be written that week – just that I found them that week (although this
week I’m cheating a bit as I’m still cleaning out my bookmarks and catching up
on 1000 backed up Feedly entries).
Every few months I’ll review the posts to determine which
entries should be put in my Resource pages, but I won’t lose the others since
they’ll be here and the blog is searchable. This should help me keep the “bookmarks/favorites” clutter on my browser under control so that they are actually useful (you wouldn’t
believe what they looked like at the end of last year, even using a folder
system!). And, maybe, you, my reader, will see something on this post or future
NoteWorthy Reads posts that will intrigue you, make you smile, or be just what
you need right now.

up Quaker. Great! Quakers kept wonderful records! But their dating system is
not American standard. This will help me figure out the records when I find

Genea-musings blog explains his Genealogy Digital File Folder Organization, I’ve got to organize my digital files better (they’re a bit of a mess because I
was moving too fast last year doing the 52 Ancestor challenge from scratch) so I’m looking at how other organized people do
