New pins to my Genealogy board this week include links to two new [to me] resources that may be helpful in researching my mother’s Irish and Scottish ancestors.
The following two links are to an article and a video lesson on FamilySearch.org that are relevant to current goals and research:
- How do I research before 1837 in England? [25 minute video]
- Preserving your family history records digitally – 3 part series
Because I don’t want my family history to just exist as files on my laptop, I pin links to creative ideas that showcase ways to display and use my family history records but not the typical scrapbooking page.
I really like this chart!
Pinterest, for those who do not know, is a way to categorize and bookmark links on the Internet in a visually appealing way. You can create a board on any topic of interest and “pin” a link to almost any website you find of that you want to bookmark for your chosen topic. The pins show up on your board using a photo or graphic from the website. You can write your own descriptor for the link.
