New Feature: Quick Link Roundup

by Sally J.

Introducing a brand new feature here on the Practical Archivist blog:

The Link Roundup.

There’s plenty of interesting stuff out there on the intertubes. For this new feature, I will find ‘em, rope ‘em and serve ‘em up to you with little or no commentary. Quick n’ dirty. Ready? Here we go…

READ:

* Randy Seaver over at Genea Musings gives a wonderful real-world example of an often overlooked fact: Everything is NOT online. Read Randy’s Manuscript Collections post for details.

*Family Tree Magazine has a helpful thread about how to persuade relatives to share photos and other documents. Personally, I find it sad that people can be so stingy with family treasures…especially when copies are so easy to make.

VIEW:

* Trunks full of family history are discovered in the walls of a house during renovation. Read the happy reunion story and watch the heartwarming video here.

* And, last but not least, a aural-ocular video treat for my steampunk friends: Thomas Edison Hates Cats.

Got a quick link you’d like to share?

Thanks for stopping by, Larry. Your rock and roll history book looks supremely cool. If you ever want to write one on Otis Redding, drop me a line…

I invite you to poke around my family history blog at http://whenwordsmatter.typepad.com/passing_it_on. I try to keep it lively, interesting and on-topic.
