Cool pictures of daily work in NYC in the 19th c.
Alice Austen took these street photographs in 1896, hoping to capture the kinds of people you might see out and about in Manhattan. They’re part of an album that Austen titled “Street Types of New York.”

Can anyone recommend a service that for turning a blog into a book?

I recently rediscovered an old blog I briefly kept when I was studying abroad in college, and decided I'd like to have it in hard copy - there are stories on there I'd completely forgotten about and would like to preserve a bit more permanently.

New post: One of my favorite ways to save money!
Genealogy is not a cheap hobby; I'm sure that's not news to anyone here. Even the most basic records can cost $15-$20 apiece, visits to repositories usually require both travel and time off work, and an Ancestry.com subscript...

New post: What I learned about my great-grandfather's WWI service through his state service records.
I've recently reviewed the WWI Service Records of three of my four great-grandfathers, John Joseph O'Hara, Joseph Eugene Mulcahy, and Domenico Gatto. All three served during the war, but none of them was sent overseas. Only o...

This is in many ways the story of my family's history in Brooklyn. Really wish I could make it!

1830s NYC Firefighting map - from the days prior to a city-wide, municipal fire department!
Before the establishment of the paid, professional Metropolitan Fire Department in 1865, New York City firefighting was an all-volunteer affair. This map, printed in 1834, was intended to mark locations of resources and split the city into districts, so that the many small volunteer fire companies could better handle emergencies.

New post: A little navel-gazing as I try to figure out why I blog.
One of my New Year's resolutions for 2014 was to blog at a rate of at least one post/week. This is hard, particularly if I'm aiming for meaty, content-rich posts about my research findings. I have not, in fact, published many...

I'm sure it's a matter of personal preference - I find blogging very simple, and it motivates me to write when I might not otherwise. And I've had a number of cousins find me via my blog who I absolutely wouldn't have gotten in touch with otherwise!
