A Family Tapestry
A new addition to my feedly feeds this week, this blog by Jacqi Stevens has a great new post almost every day. Jacqi blogs about her family history research with some great case studies and methodology insights.
A Patient Genealogist
A Patient Genealogist is written by Devon Lee and her most recent post on Heritage Scrapbooking caught my attention. One day when I have more time, I'm going to get into digital scrapbooking but in the meantime, it was fun browsing through Devon's old posts and looking at example pages. Devon has also written two books on scrapbooking, both available on Amazon from links on her about page.
Recommended by Linda Stufflebean who I also follow, Dutch Genealogy by Yvette Hoitink is a great addition to my Feedly reader. It looks like a great blog, even if you don't have any Dutch ancestors but in my case, my children are half Dutch and I've done some basic research on their father's lineage. I look forward to learning more about Dutch genealogy.
Earlier Years is a blog by Carmel Galvin, a retired teacher and librarian from Australia. She shares newspaper articles, pictures, obituaries and other finds as she researches her family.
Elyse's Genealogy Blog
Elyse Doerflinger shares her genealogy knowledge and information about her family on Elyse's Genealogy Blog. In her about me page, Elyse says: I’ve researched my family tree for nearly 8 years – and most of what I’ve learned, I’ve learned by making mistakes. My goal is to share the lessons I’ve learned in hopes of keeping you from making the same mistakes. I don't know about you, but I'm more than happy to learn from other people's mistakes! Like me, Elyse writes for genealogy magazines including Internet Genealogy Magazine, Family Chronicle, and been featured in Family Tree Magazine.
Empty Branches on the Family Tree
Besides a weekly 'Recommended Reads' post that I find so helpful, Linda Stufflebean also blogs about her quest to find the missing ancestors in her family tree on her blog Empty Branches on the Family Tree. She maintains a great set of helpful links as well in her Research Toolbox, accessible from the menu on her blog.
Family History Daily
I discovered this new blog recently by following a link to a post called: The Grumpy Genealogist: 4 Things That Really Bug Me About Family History Research. Definitely a recommended read, this blog is edited by Melanie Mayo.
Genealogy a la carte
Written by fellow Canadian Gail Dever from Montreal, Genealogy a la Carte is another recommendation from the Empty Branches blog. Besides blogging about Quebec genealogy, something I hope to learn more about, Gail also posts about general interest topics and her latest post about the NGIS Virtual meetings contained the great tip of preparing questions ahead of time.
I’m always happy to find a new post by James Tanner over at Genealogy’s Star in my Feedly feed because his articles are always a great read, sure to both entertain and inform. I’ve been especially enjoying his post series about the Elements of Research for which he posted part eleven this week and his suggestion that we view records with a Healthy Dose of Skepticism is a great reminder.

Moultrie Creek Gazette
I've been following this blog by Denise Olson for a long time and I enjoy the articles. Denise is a great source of tech advice for the genealogist and she shares my love of WordPress. Although Denise is a Mac user, there is lots of general tech advice for PC users as well.
One Rhode Island Family
Another new edition to my feedly feeds, this blog by Diane MacLean Boumenot details her genealogical adventures through 400 years of family history. Although none of my ancestors are from Rhode Island, Diane’s posts inspire me to explore new sources and records in my own places of interest and her ideas, tips and how-to articles are often unique and equally inspiring.

The Fairy Tale Genealogist
For a bit of fun, check out the Fairy Tale Genealogist by Dayna Jacobs, AG where she explores the genealogy of our favourite childhood fairy tale characters. It’s surprising who you can find in those online indexes!
The Olive Tree Genealogy
Back in the days before Evernote when I depended on my browser bookmarks, Olive Tree Genealogy was one of my favourite sites to head to for Canadian Genealogy research but just a few weeks ago, I discovered the blog of the same name, by Lorin McGinnis Schulze and added it to my feeds. Check it out, it’s a great read!
I stumbled upon this blog this week as well and quickly added it to my feedly feeds. This blog is posted to by a whole group of bloggers from either the genealogy or historical communities making for a very eclectic mix of daily posts – a great collaborative project that you really have to check out!
Yvonne's Genealogy Blog
Yvonne Demoskoff blogs about her French-Canadian ancestry and her husband's Russian roots over on Yvonne's Genealogy Blog. In her latest blog post entitled Three Captives and an Immigrant, she refers back to a post from two years ago called Elizabeth Price, Deerfield Captive and I could not resist clicking through. I was not disappointed. It was a great story.
