Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

The Irish Story blog has a post called “War and Famine in Ireland, 1580-1700” and it is the first in a series of posts by John Dorney on “how war provoked famine and massive population loss and aided conquest in early modern Ireland.”

The Family Recorder has a post called “Those Places Thursday – it’s not where you think it is” which looks at the anomalies of place names and what you need to look for when doing your research.

Greta’s Genealogy Blog has a post about apps and other obstacles called “How NOT to Jump-Start Your Genealogy.” It provides a humourous look at the things that can get in the way of our research. I have the cat problem Greta, especially around dinner time.

You will also find blog posts reviewed by the following bloggers:

Genea-Musings – Best of the Genea-Blogs

TransylvanianDutch – Week in Review

British and Irish Genealogy
