NoteWorthy Reads #14

Climbing My Family Tree: NoteWorthy Reads #14

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. At the end of each trimester I’ll review the posts to determine which entries should be put in my Resource pages; the rest will still be available through the blog's search function.

Note: Just because I list an article does not mean I endorse its contents. It just means I want to be able to find it easily in the future when I may want to consider the issue in more depth.

I’m still behind in my reading as I went on a mini-vacation, and then things went haywire. Moreso for others than for me, but I was not exempt from some of the stress. Hopefully, things are on their way to working out.

On my mini-vacation, I went to the South Carolina Book Festival, which was great fun, and at which I bought so many books I couldn’t pack them on the plane with me and had to have them all mailed home instead!

In this post, I caught up on the articles I emailed to myself; next week I intend to catch up on my Feedly backlog.
