Follow: Friday - Around the Blogosphere - March 11

Here are a few of the posts that I enjoyed from the genealogy blogs this week.

Ordering tombstones from the Sear's catalog - check out this ad posted on Escape to the Silent Cities.

Dave discusses pruning your family tree on the Digicopia blog.

Using land records to solve genealogy problems was a topic on The Turning of Generations.

Here's a step-by-step description of using the FamilySearch extension in the Google Chrome browser. This is a nifty tool that lets you search while on a person page on This has been working fine all week, until today. The developer indicated it may be an issue with FamilySearch - and will keep an eye on things to make sure the extension continues to work as intended. The post is from John on the Currach blog, whom I thank for bringing this add-on to my attention.

Another great post from James Tanner at Genealogy's Star is about online privacy.

The list is a little short this week - I've had the pleasure of ancestor overload this week with a LOT of new information and photographs coming my way. I've actually been working on my family history research rather than reading the blogs! That's a good thing, though, right?
