Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

The University of Glasgow Library blog has a post called “Matriculation Index images on Flickr.” This is a set of images from the ledger of information on graduating students in the 19th century. The person who entered the names into the ledger got creative with the letters for each section.

Chris Paton of the British GENES blog has a post called “New book due soon – Discover Scottish Land Records.” This guide to Scottish land records will be a must have for anyone’s library. Congratulations on the new book Chris! I can’t wait to get my copy.

The FamilySearch blog has a post called “Capture Your Knowledge in the Research Wiki.” This post helps you to add your own knowledge to the Research Wiki at FamilySearch. The Wiki Support team is available to answer your questions. What information can you add to the FamilySearch Research Wiki?

The National Library of Ireland blog has a post called “Conserving our Newspapers” which takes you through the process of bringing an old newspaper back to life. There are pictures to show you the process and a before and after shot of a newspaper that has been revived.

Dick Eastman had a post this week called “Barking Up the Wrong Tree.” This is something we have all done and a lesson for new genealogists to learn before they make the same mistake.
