Follow Friday is a day when genealogists can write about another blog, book, genealogy society / historical society or anything they recommend to others. For this reason, I choose Becky's site.
Today, when she posted a map of her newest detour, that of driving to Alaska (see her map, click to enlarge), I thought this would be a great way for children to follow along. Many still have a month of vacation, and they can take the trip with her. What a wonderful way to learn. And, as she mentioned today, she might not always have wifi, so if there is a lapse, you can always go back through her blogs and read about other locations and see some of the best photos you will ever see. She doesn't sightsee like me....she does it, as in taking long hikes and getting the best shots (unlike mine taken a few feet from the car). In addition, she explains things and discusses history...it isn't just photos.
I wish her a safe journey and hope many of you will follow her along this great journey.
Tina Lyons of Gen Wish List surprised me with a Follow Friday for my blog. Thank you Tina.
My above cousin also pointed me in the direction of Library History Bluff Blog when she saw a write up about my librarian gg grandfather. What a nice surprise. You never know where your ancestors will show up.
When I typed up the longest obituary I've ever seen on my ancestor, I had no idea that the New York Times had it online! A week later, after my post, I was looking for something else on google pertaining to that family and came across it. I think I should use Google more than I do, if I had, I could have saved myself a huge amount of time!
I thought I caught a glimpse of me
Soon my present will be past
For I will not forever last.
