Oh my – it has been such a long time since I published a bog post! Once you get away from it getting started again is painfully hard. Especially when my genealogy work these past few months has been so hit and miss. Life gets in the way of hobbies sometimes.
Anyway, to get back into it a bit I wanted to share some fun genealogy-related finds that I’ve come across in the last few weeks.
One of my absolute favorites is the Facebook page EBay Genealogy. On this page if you find family pictures, Bibles, documents, etc on places like Ebay, Goodwill auctions, Etsy, or in antique shops you can post the find on this page and help families reconnect with lost heirlooms.
Another new Facebook page that I just discovered is We Are Genealogy Bloggers. This site is just getting started but already has 191 members as of this writing. Fellow bloggers share their tips and hints, ask questions, and sometimes share helpful individual blog posts.
If you’re interested in Rhode Island genealogy, Diane Boumenot is starting an eight-part series on her blog, One Rhode Island Family. The series will be a wealth of information on researching Rhode Island ancestors – complete with web links. I’m looking forward to it.
