Here are some posts that I really enjoyed this week from both genealogy blogs and “other” blogs that had something interested and related to genealogy or at least genea-blogging. If you missed any, be sure to visit these sites!
FootnoteMaven has a good post entitled “Sign Here Please!”. She not only collects her ancestors’ autographs, but also explains how to display them quite attractively. As I am a fellow ancestor-autograph-hunter, this certainly caught my eye. [2/24/08]
Small-Leaved Shamrock writes about “November 1892: PA train explosion makes NYC headlines”. Not only is the story of Lisa’s 2nd great-grandfather’s untimely death interesting, but her post reminds us of alternate sources of information we can use to learn more about the lives (and deaths) of our ancestors.

Web Worker Daily describes Google’s latest offering in “Google Sites Finally Launches”. This looks like it will be valuable for genealogists, especially genealogical societies. [2/27/08]
Randy highlights how “Genealogy Research shines today” with a story direct from major news headlines about a genealogist who proved that a memoir-author was a fraud. Dear Myrtle also posted about this story with “Holocaust fraud solved by source documents” and interviews the genealogist in a podcast. [2/29/08]
