Simply Mahvahlous, Dahling!

According to Geneabloggers, there are now over 3000 genealogy and family history related blogs listed on their site.  The thought of trying to read them all is simply exhausting.  I do manage to read through quite a few of them as well as keep up on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ and from time to time I will share with you things I found that are "Simply Mahvahlous, Dahling!"



Most all of you know that the show "Who Do You Think You Are" is back on the air, this time on TLC (The Learning Channel).  Last night Christina Applegate was the star and it was a very powerful, very real episode.  The In-Depth Genealogist has been hosting a Google Hangout after each show with the panelists sharing their thoughts about it.  Michael Hait was one of the panelists along with Dear Myrtle and Gena Philibert-Ortega and Host Jen Baldwin.  Michael said something that really rang true to me regarding my own family.  In reference to why he spent so much time researching  his step-grandfather Michael said:

"Alot of genealogists focus on the bloodline.  Well, blood comes out of the heart and he is the grandfather of my heart."

Michael Leclerc hosts a weekly video "Fireside Chat" over at Mocavo.  This week his guest was Maureen Taylor who talked about her newest project "Revolutionary Voices: A Last Muster Film."  Great interview - the 45 minutes just flew by and left me wanting more.

Thomas MacEntee, the genealogy ninja, has a new website called "Hack Genealogy."  According to the site, Hack Genealogy is about "re-purposing today's technology for tomorrow's genealogy.
