Here are some interesting and helpful links I’ve run across recently.

  • Faces of America – I’m mad at myself for not also mentioning this wonderful show when I talked about NBC’s Who Do You Think You Are. The first episode was shown on PBS on Wednesday night on most PBS stations. Sadly, the local Milwaukee affiliate isn’t showing it until Saturday. Fortunately, you can also watch it online. So, go there and do that.
  • Donna at What’s Past is Prologue shares a funny post titled, “If Genealogists Ruled the Television Networks.”
  • A great post over at The Armchair Genealogist written by guest Thomas MacEntee about using Ancestry’s MyCanvas system to make your own family history book. I’d really like to do this at some point.
  • A very interesting post from Lori at Genealogy and Me that talks about her finding and then solving a mystery about the August Hellmund in her tree.
  • Denise writes a post over at The Graveyard Rabbit about writing a living Book of the Dead.

Any other interesting posts out there? Feel free to send them my way.

About Brian Zalewski

I started genealogy research about mid-1999. My grandfather had passed away in April of that year. Since then I’ve done a lot of research not only for myself, but for friends and other relatives. In 2006, I married the love of my life, Darcy, and welcomed the birth of our daughter, Aerissa Jean, in 2010 and our son, Xander Lee, in 2012. I can’t wait to tell them stories about all of their ancestors.
