I came across a post last week that I had to read but kept putting it off to do other things. Well, I just read it and now have to go try this myself.
Take a peek at FamHist’s Using Springpad for Genealogy Research and give it a try yourself!Tweet

While doing research for a client last week, I was reminded again to trust my gut and follow the paper trail even if it leads to a dead end. Sometimes this requires reading rolls and rolls of microfilm as you scan newspaper headlines looking for that one thing you need to help prove a theory. Other times it requires re-reading documents you already have in your possession to ensure you are not missing any vital pieces. And sometimes you just have to go with your gut and search the one source you feel is THE one to provide the answers.Tweet

This weekend I was going through boxes of memorabilia to sort and organize it. I came across this photograph which had been in one of my uncle’s old albums. I’m not sure who Louie is. A friend of my grandpa’s? I wish the people sitting on the stools were not so blurred and faded. Regardless, I think it is an interesting picture of the time period and wanted to share. Maybe someone will see this and know who it is and where it was taken.Tweet
