Follow Friday: Life From The Roots

For Follow Friday this week, I recommend that you take a look at Barbara's blog Life From The Roots.

Barbara recently did a blog series about conversations that she has had with other researchers. It is amazing how many connections you can find just by talking about your family to the person sitting next to you. Part 1 was about meeting a cousin at a genealogy society dinner, Part 2 was about  meeting a cousin at the microfilm reader next to her, and Part 3 was about writing to the author of a family history.

Barbara also has a Follow Friday series where she highlights a resource that she has found in her research. So far she has highlighted a courthouse in Fonta, New York and Riverdale, Michigan. I hope that Barbara will continue sharing resources that she has used. I especially liked reading about her experience visiting the courthouse which houses the county's archives.

I hope that you will stop by Barbara's blog. Her photos alone will peak your interest.


  1. I love Barbara's blog! She deserves your accolades. I enjoyed her "conversations" very much, too.

  2. Why thank you so much Tina, what a wonderful surprise. I know I told you I was cutting back the blogs for the summer, but it is so hard. I am very touched.
