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!
For me, Noteworthy Reads are articles, websites, or blog posts I found recently which are fascinating, interesting and/or helpful, and occasionally “wacky” or “wonderful” will likely sneak in as well. When I have the time I review the posts to determine which entries should be put in my Resource pages; the rest will remain 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.
October turned into a rather full and overwhelming month for me and I didn’t get much done on my genealogy research or write any blog posts, but you all wrote some very interesting blog posts/articles! I’m hoping that November is better for me and continues well for you!
Soldiers of the Queen from the blog, Genealogy: Beyond the BMD – she’s found an online collection of British military photographs and research. It looks utterly fascinating for those who may have ancestors who were in the Queens army in the Victorian era. A word of caution, if you are surfing the web with a headset or an earpiece in your ear take it off before clicking the link at the bottom of the article into the Soldiers of the Queen website – that music is LOUD!
