Follow Friday: Around the Blogosphere - April 15

Sometimes life interferes with the reading of one's blogs, so Around the Blogosphere has been AWOL for the last three weeks. Once my Google Reader hit 700 blog posts that I hadn't read, I had to give in, delete them and move on.

However, here are some of my favorite genealogy blog posts that I've read recently:

Organizing Family Photos: Getting Over the Hump by Melissa Mannon on ArchivesInfo.

Websites for Finding Vital Records and their Alternatives by Gena Phillibert Ortega on Gena's Genealogy.

Preserve it or lose it - Dear Myrtle - here's where I discovered the Light Impressions web site where I've ordered some archival storage containers that meet the PAT test.

Obsessed With Genealogy by Ruby Coleman on the You Go Genealogy Girls blog.

Are You Related to? by Deb Ruth (no relation to the Babe) on Adventures in Genealogy.

The Minute Men of 1861 by Barbara Poole on Life From the Roots.

Why Is there So Much Drama on FindAGrave by Kerry on Clue Wagon - be sure to read the comments in this fascinating discussion. We've all had varying experiences with this site, although mostly quite positive. Yes, sometimes there is drama there.

Dorothy Louise Harris - this is an excellent example of putting together a story timeline illustrated with photographs. From Dave Weller on Tree Rings.

What Makes a Good Memoir - Biff Barnes on Family History and Memoirs.
