Thanksgiving Thanks to Fellow Bloggers

I am thankful for the year round support & 
inspiration from my fellow bloggers.  

Here are a few of my ‘favorite pages’. Do you have favorites you’d like to thank? Thank them on your blog & leave a link in the comments here. I love to discover new blogs!

I have even more favorites [not all would fit here]. Check my Blog List for more extra special blogs!

F      (Carolina) Family Roots, Charles Purvis. Charlie & I are distant cousins who met through our blogs & then met during a trip I took to North Carolina. I am always impressed with the long list of sources he lists with his findings. Charlie has given me many tips for NC research.
A      A Light that Shines Again by Lisa, a delightful blog about Irish heritage; reading this blog is like taking a trip across the Atlantic to those beautiful green shores.
V      Virginia based Wendy who writes Jollett, Etc., the friendliest blog anywhere. I have not yet met Wendy [maybe on a future trip to visit my daughter in VA] but feel that she is a pal.
O      ‘On a flesh and bone foundation’: An Irish History, Jennifer. Just starting to trace Irish roots or looking for a new avenue for research? This is the place to go. There are many links here you will enjoy.
R      Randy Seaver at Genea-Musings gives up tips, techniques & genealogy news. An active blog with lots to share. Want to keep in touch with the latest genealogy happenings? Visit this blog.
I        Irish Genealogy: Help! The Faery Folk Hid my Ancestors! by Deborah Large Fox, who has some great Irish tips & the latest in Irish genealogy news.
T      The Family Curator, Denise Levenick, aids us in preserving & sharing our family treasures. We all have bits from the past that we’d like to preserve for the future.
E      Explorations in Connecticut Genealogy, Bryna O’Sullivan. I have roots in CT and Bryna has taken the time to give me many great research tips. She knows the best places to search!

P      Prince William County Genealogy, Carolyn writes about this Virginia County, its history & genealogy insights. If you have links to this area as I do you or you plan to visit the area should stop by this blog.
A      Ancestors Live Here by Leslie Ann. This is a lovely blog documenting Leslie’s research into her family’s past.
G      Geneabloggers, Thomas MacEntee, who links us all together to help and inspire each other! A huge Thanks to Thomas!
