Tex is still on a Blogging Pause. She is on a "medical mission" and her blog, All My Ancestors, is still blocked as a malicious site. I have no idea what's up but I'm sending good thoughts her way.
Another friend who is MIA is Janice at Cow Hampshire. I hope all is well and I'm sending good thoughts her way too.
Way back in July, Amy's Genealogy, etc. Blog had a great link to Spring Grove Cemetery and all of my Cinncinatti Carlisle's are there. Thanks Amy!
Salute to the Old Timers! at kinnexions. Becky takes a look at some of the active geneablogs that she has followed the longest. I'm flattered that Apple's Tree is one and in very good company.
Becky also had a great tip for making illegible inscriptions on headstones legible!
T.K. has an amazing link at Internet Buffet. I may just have to but some markers! Of course I don't know as I have enough artistic talent to pull it off.
Kathryn Doyle, at the California Genealogical Society and Library blog, had a great reminder that some of the published genealogies out there really need to be verified. I've never before run across a work citing "occult powers." Have you?
I've played a little with trying to make a migration map but nothing I've done comes close the the map Judy made at Nevada Genealogist. Check it out!
Fall is a very busy time for me and I don't get to travel much, therefore I really enjoyed Nature Girls pictures of Mt Hope Cemetery in Rochester, NY.
J.L Bell had an interesting piece, Driving the Battle of Brandywine, at Boston 1775. I admit that I did not pay attention in history class when wars were covered but I didn't remember ever hearing of this battle before.
Another piece of history I missed in school was the Whiskey Rebellion. Thanks to Les at Family Genealogy.
