GAGs - GeniAus' Gems - 23 January 2015

My secateurs have been busy this morning. Before I opened my Evernote GAGs Notebook I knew that I would have to prune down the list of contenders for inclusion in this week's edition of GeniAus Gems. Perhaps I was in a positive frame of mind this week and clipped a few too many posts or maybe geneabloggers are hittng their straps after the Christmas break.

It took a a bit of detective work to determine the authors of some of the posts I found this week. I had a rant about this last week. Does your blog have an author statement?



The pruning is done so I present to you my (biased) list of GeniAus' Gems for this week.

1. My dear friend Pat, aka DearMyrtle, has joined the Worldwide Genealogy blog team and her maiden post is a winner (and I am not at all biased towards Hangouts).

2. Susie couldn't resist following up a query. Perhaps you can help.

Thanks for the mention Jill. I am a little in love with the reading room and need to organise many more visits.
