Good post by new blogger & new family historian
I recently discovered Evidencia software (http://evidentiasoftware.com/). And I love it! It's not another family tree software -- seriously, do we need another one of those? This is a place to record data from all of your sou...

For centuries children have worked to help their families. They have helped their parents farm, run stores, and do other businesses. But, during the American Industrial Revolution, many children went to work in the mills and ...

Some great stories, some history, some  new (to me) sources for Canada and Ireland, webinars and other interesting things
For me, Noteworthy Reads are articles, websites, or blogposts I found this week which are fascinating, interesting and/or helpful, and occasionally “wacky” or “wonderful” will likely sneak in as well. It’s not going to be a “...

Discussing the books I've picked up in the last year. From Amish & Amish-Mennonite Genealogy to Scots-Canadian arrivals to How to's to a grand-uncle's book.
photo via Pixabay.com I spent the week finishing off a project I owed someone who helped me a great deal last year, and it’s done now, but it doesn’t make much of a blog post. I didn’t know what I was going to write about t...

I now have Resource pages for the USA, Canada, the UK & Ireland, and Germany, (and an etcetera page) containing links to useful online resources I've found while doing my family history research. Take a look!
I’ve been working on the update of my Resource page. In this update, my one Resource page has grown to five Resource pages because I am including links to every useful resource I have found in my family history research this ...

Fighting my demons

I've been using the Internet Archive but never understood what the Way Back machine could do for me. Thank you for the explanation. I've highlighted this post on my NoteWorthy Reads post for this week: http://jahcmft.blogspot.com/2015/02/noteworthy-reads-3.html?m=1
The wayback machine. You know how websites have a tendency to disappear or their URLs change, etc? Well, via the wayback machine, you might find that there is a “saved” copy of the webpage you seek. 2. The textual archive. So many out-of-copyright (and mostly out-of-print) books are part of this ...

Story
Introduction
Hi! I'm a mid-life  woman with a high stress professional job that I sometimes love; I'm a bookworm who doesn't have enough time to read; I lean left politically; I'm a liberal Christian (yep, we exist), and an insomniac. My newest passion is family history. I love researching my ancestors and finding out their stories; I'm not only collecting names. I've also started a blog to keep my family informed of my research, help me analyze my research,  make new friends, and possibly find new cousins. ; ) Climbing My Family Tree - http://jahcmft.blogspot.com/.  Stop in and say hi! And I'm on Twitter at https://twitter.com/JoAllisonHenn
