Notable Genealogy Blog Posts, 12 March 2012

The following recent blog posts are those that I consider important or notable. Unlike other similar blog lists, I cannot guarantee that they will all be from the past week. (Some weeks I simply do not have time to read any blogs.) But I will try to write this on a fairly regular basis.

The Narrator (pseudonym), “Tuesday’s Tip – Interpreting primary sources – the 6 ‘w’s,” Essex Voices Past blog, posted 21 February 2012 and “Tuesday’s Tip: Primary sources – ‘Unwitting Testimony’,” Essex Voices Past blog, posted 28 February 2012 ( : accessed 5 March 2012). These two articles are geared more towards historians than genealogists, but they discuss important aspects of interpreting the records we use: basically understanding what the document says, and what it means (but doesn’t say).

Harold Henderson, “How to prove parents without direct evidence,” Midwestern Microhistory blog, posted 8 March 2012 ( : accessed 9 March 2012). In this enlightening post, Harold dissects the evidence and the proof argument of a case study in a recent issue of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly.

Daniel Hubbard, “Learning and Imagining,” Personal Past Meditations blog, posted 4 March 2012 ( : accessed 9 March 2012). Daniel discusses breaking the rules of genealogy, particularly the one about starting with yourself and moving methodically back in time.
