Sunday Synopsis A to Z challenge: 21 April 2013

A2Z-2013-BADGE-001Small_zps669396f9 (1)This week has been something of a shambles with more technical problems. My writing and reading have both fallen behind so I’ll have a lot to catch up on this week. Meanwhile I leave you with only a couple of blogs:

Pick of the Week has to be my friend Kristin’s blog Finding Eliza as she has been listed as one of the Top 40 Genealogy Blogs for 2013. This is what Family History Magazine said about her blog:

Through family photos and old newspaper clippings, Kristin Cleage Williams tells the story of the family she’s been researching since 1963. Reading her blog takes you into the personal side of the civil rights movement—her father was a prominent minister—as well as efforts to combat segregation in the early part of the 20th century.

If you ever thought history was irrelevant or that your family had nothing to do with proper history, do read Kristin’s blog as it will change your mind – we all play our part, small or large.

Branches, Leaves and Pollen (Amy is writing about family history)

 Simply Sarah is writing a short, imaginative children’s story each day.

My apologies for this  short list…if you haven’t looked at my previous two weeks’ blog recommendations why not check them out.. 

Thanks to all those who’ve visited my blog, those who’ve commented, and especially those who’ve chosen to follow me. 

There’s some big adventures this week so I hope you enjoy the journey.

  1. Thank you for this. Kristin’s blog, Finding Eliza, has been the most wonderful finds of this A-to-Z Challenge so far. I didn’t know these facts about her project, and am all the more inspired and motivated to read back into it. I look forward to reading more of your blog, too. All the best with the rest of the Challenge, and don’t worry about having fallen behind. My problem is that the whole rest of my life has fallen wildly behind! But i’m so enjoying this.

    1. I’m with you on that Josna:-) Not helped by IT which is great when it works but currently doing intensive care on two of them. Glad you enjoyed Kristin’s blog -it really is a star performer especially as her family’s story, recent and distant, highlights the personal impact (and vice versa) of history.

  2. Thank you so much for the mention and the kind words. I have been putting off writing my “S” post all day. I think I better go do it now. I decided to go visit the blogs I have found and that I’m following and that took me off for a long wandering, enjoyable day of reading, but that’s not getting the post done so, with you and Josna’s kind words echoing in my head, I’m off.

    1. You are so very welcome Kristin, and as always well deserved. I had a “dud” week of IT hassles and, on the reverse, getting holiday arrangements booked, but it didn’t do much for my A to Z surfing. For the first time I’m almost out of advance posts…yikes! Grandkids today then tomorrow will be writing now both computers are functional….touch wood!
