Follow Friday: Around the Blogosphere - December 3

It's Friday once again and that means it's time for Around the Blogosphere - a look at my favorite posts from the genealogy blogs from the past week.

Lynn Palermo of The Armchair Genealogist recommends getting a wider audience for your genealogy book by getting an ISBN number.Not sure what that is? Read Lynn's post.

Tips for telling your life story are shared by Ian on Create Your Life Story.

My friend, Diana Ritchie, tells about her family's connection to Colorado with her post, Every Family Has One, on Random Relatives. Diana has also decorated her blog for Christmas, so check it out.

Another friend, Barbara Poole, shares some good information in her post about the history of the Eastern Townships on Life from the Roots.

James Tanner of Genealogy's Star makes my list once again with his explanation of dpi, ppi and scanning documents for genealogy purposes.

Paula Stuart-Warren of Paula's Genealogical Eclectic reminds all that we need to leave behind our own life stories for future generations.

Michael John Neill's story, Cleaning Mother's House, a reprint from 2002 is a wonderful piece of satire. However, as I learned from sharing this on Facebook, the experiences he describes have hit a little too close to home for some people. This is definitely one of the "must read"s for this week.

I hope you'll find these posts as interesting and informative as I did. To read previous Around the Blogosphere posts, click here.

  2. Thank you Susan for the mention. I have been wanting to post that article for a long time, since I had 4 generations living there.
