Follow Friday: Around the Blogosphere - November 5
Footnote Maven has a cranky pants alert in her rant about Genealogy Snobbery. A great read as well as rant.
Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers also made some very valid observations on Genealogy Snobbery. Let's hear it for fM and Thomas!
Thomas has another of my favorite posts this week, on Election Day, Politics and Genealogy at Destination Austin Family.
Amy Coffin of We Tree Genealogy discussed the importance of voting in genealogy organization elections. Paula Stuart-Warren also discussed this topic on her blog.
Are postings on social media sites considered records? Here is an informative post on this topic by the "Collector in Chief" of the National Archives.
Graves Without Tombstones is an insightful post on "On a Flesh and Bone Foundation."
Another nod to Thomas MacEntee for his post about finding cousins on Twitter. If anyone can do it, Thomas can!
Becky Higgins of My Genealogy Pondering rose to the 52 Weeks to Better Genealogy challenge with her post on giving back.
DearMyrtle offered a great how-to on using Dropbox.
Diane Haddad at the Genealogy Insider offers tips on finding genealogy clues in history books.
Paula Stuart-Warren offers some great advice about being and having a genealogy buddy.
Glad to see that my idea for the Genea-Angel award is picking up some support and people are paying it forward by acknowledging others who have helped them along the way. Michelle Goodrum of the Turning of the Generations recognizes three of her Genea-Angels (all of whom most of us Geneabloggers know and love).
And I'd also like to acknowledge the folks at the Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner web site for liking my review of their product enough to feature it on their blog. I'm still loving this little scanner!
