Genealogical Goodness

There is an overflowing well of genealogical goodness in the blogging community. In the process of educating myself on how to blog I have found some amazing treasures. The one that most tickled my fancy today is Shades of the Departed. If you enjoy looking at priceless old photographs, this is a blog you shouldn't overlook. I actually can't believe I have never stumbled upon it before. The author is a long time collector of vintage photographs and with this blog she (or he?) humbly shares her wealth with us. She publishes a monthly digital magazine called Shades of the Departed. I would be embarrassed to tell you how much time I spent today perusing the endlessly beautiful pages. This magazine and blog are now at the top of my must reads. I must mention that this author writes several other notable blogs, of particular interest me is footnoteMaven.com, but they will have to wait for another day or my kids will start a revolt.

  1. What lovely things you say. You have made me a bit dizzy here at your "top."

    Shades is the love of my life. footnoteMaven (she) is a family historian who loves "the stories."

    It is so good to know that someone reads and appreciates the things I/we do. (Many wonderful people work to make Shades The Magazine that it is.)

    Thank you!
