- From The Telegraph: "First World War: Around the war in a handful of objects." Sometimes it's the objects we have that spark our interest in family history research as they help us to tell the story. [A good Sunday read, or, look-see.]

- On The Genetic Genealogist, Blaine explains why ignoring the AncestryDNA naysayers is the best thing to do. [I agree. And I recently acquired an AncestryDNA test kit.

BTW, right after my Family Stories blog, I get the most cousin contacts via my private tree on Ancestry.com. I never liked witch hunts anyway. Not when it comes to my ancestors [My 10th great grandmother, Mary (Perkins) Bradbury, was accused of being one.] or one of my favorite genealogy companies.]
- Kickstarter was hacked. So if you ever ran a project with them or if you have ever given money to a Kickstarter project, then you should probably go change your password. [I did.]
