Two of my neighbors and good friends have taken up blogging recently. Both started their blogs to share information on subjects they are passionate about. I’d like to introduce each of them and give you previews of their sites.
First, we have Barb, who created Crawford/Comfort Family Letters to share information from her genealogical research. She is posting correspondence between Hiram and Nancy Crawford and their eight children, as well as other family members and friends. These letters, transcribed by Barb with help from a cousin, were written between 1849 and the early 1920s. She includes a summary of each letter at the beginning of the post, as well as a photocopy of the original letter. Her blog also includes a page of family photos.
Here is a sample post from Crawford/Comfort Family Letters: https://expyour.wordpress.com/2015/07/06/october-11-1861-letter-to-sarah-keith-from-platt-nancy-betts/
Next up is Joe, who is blogging about his lifelong passion — music. Though he is not new to writing or to research, Joe jumped back into the blogosphere just a few days ago, when he published his first post on Life Out of Tunes. Seeing the Brian Wilson biopic Love and Mercy spurred Joe to begin blogging his personal memoirs and observations on the music that shaped his life.
Here is Joe’s first post: http://lifeoutoftunes.com/2015/07/04/hello-world/
I urge you to check out both of these blogs by following the links I’ve included. If you like what you see, you may want to do as I did and sign up to follow the blogs.
