Julie Goucher shared this post on Twitter and I have found it really interesting. It had struck me before that there is a possible conflict between respecting the copyright of images on the web and the pinterest concept of repinning. I understand that the pinned images should always have a link back to the original, but I wonder if it perpetuates the idea that everything on the web is there for the taking?

This post also talks about the types of post that do well on pinterest.

I hope this list of civilian war deaths on the St Pancras memorial proves helpful in someones search for their ancestors

This is the first of a few cemetery posts that I have planned for the next week or so. I spent this morning at St Pancras Cemetery - wow, it's huge. I hope the rain holds off this week.

I have set up a gallery of UK wordpress blogs to go with my latest blog post series. It has been very interesting comparing the genealogy/history blogs.

I have just read this post thanks to it being mentioned on genea-musings. I'm desperate to organise my genealogy better, and will be returning to this post for ideas, as well as following up the links.

Story
Tagline
Family Historian, UK.
Introduction
I'm a family historian in London, researching ancestors in Essex, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
I recently registered my one-name study into the Elsom name (with variants Elsum, Elsam, Ellsom, Elsome and Elsham) with the Guild of One-Name Studies.

I love solving genealogical puzzles. I'm interested in connecting with other family historians to learn from each other.
