Weekly Rewind


Kathryn has posted the 3rd edition of the Canadian Genealogy Carnival: Around the Kitchen Table, at Looking4Ancestors. There were only six entries for this edition so try and read them all and leave a comment or two! The details for the next edition are not available yet, instead Kathryn leaves us with a bit of a mystery:
That concludes this edition. Thanks for dropping by. The details for the 4th Edition of the Canadian Genealogy Carnival are still being worked out. It involves a guest host, unscrupulous ancestors and prizes! Details will be posted here, on the guest host's blog and on the GeneaBloggers Group page on Facebook this week-end.

Great Reads

Terry Snyder has a new monthly column, The Monthly Melange. Head over to Desktop Genealogist Unplugged to see which posts caught her attention, it's a great list!

Looking for a high speed scanner but afraid to send your precious documents out? Check out Dick's Genealogy & History Blog to see where he found one. I'll bet there is one near you too.

Colleen's Sunday Spook at The R.I.P.PERS made me smile. I swear I've been to that library!

Bill West is on a roll with stories of my New England cousins. This week he told the tale of Thomas Sawyer Junior and the Indians at West in New England.

Randy Seaver is looking for your predictions on Genealogy in the 21st Century at Genea-Musings.

I loved Lisa's post Ferencz Ujaki and the trip he didn't take: Part 2 at 100 Years in America. The geneablogging community is great and I'd love to see more posts like this!

Jim has a very interesting series of videos posted at Berry Family DNA Blog: The Ghost in Your Genes. I admit that I didn't watch all of it yet as it is quite long but I hope to have time soon. Check it out and let me know what you think.

I use Google Reader to generate my blog rolls and my shared items at The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree. The widgets are quick and easy and load quickly. Thomas MacEntee has instructions up at Bootcamp for Genea-Bloggers that takes these widgets a step further to let you create a topic based widget.

My Week

I have undoubtedly left out some great posts this week because quite frankly I did not do much reading this week due to a nasty virus.

I was contacted by two cousins that found me through posts on my blog and I hope to explore our connections further in the coming weeks.

Today we are leaving the cold and snow behind and heading south for a week. I don't expect to be online much before the 24th.

I'm so glad that you shared my joy with me regarding the discovery of my great-grandfather's passenger lists. I agree with your comment: we have such a wealth of experience and knowledge between all of us in the genealogy blogging community, it is so good when we share it. I truly appreciated Jennifer's and Donna's efforts.
