Follow Friday: Around the Blogosphere - December 24

The following are some of my favorites posts from the genealogy blogs from the past week.

Barbara Poole of Life From the Roots continued the fascinating story of Delight Adams Benham. And it all started with just a name.

Margel at 2338 N Washington Blvd has shared a great story and photos of a "portable graveyard" - you must see this one to believe it!

You never know what you might find along with documents at the National Archives - but a MOLE? Check it out at NARA's Prologue: Pieces of History.

Is interest in genealogy waning? Search results might say so. Read the statistics from Jirene's Genealogy Tips.

One of the best personal stories (and photo essay) I've read in a long time is this profile of Tom D, shared on the Family Epic blog.

James Tanner of Genealogy's Star hits the mark once again with Finding Your Way: GPS for Genealogists.

Bill West of West in New England gave some points to ponder in his post What is the Worth of a Genealogy Blog?

Thanks to a link from Randy Seaver's "best of" list last week, I've discovered several personal history blogs that I subscribed to this week. The Top 10 personal history blogs are featured by Dan Curtis on his Professional Personal Historian blog.

Bloggers will also be interested in another post by Dan Curtis called What Everybody Ought to Know About a Successful Blog.

Family Oral History While Using Digital Tools had two great blog posts: Interviewing While Looking a Photo Albums, Part 1 and Part 2.
