GAGs - GeniAus' Gems - 1 January 2016

Many of my readers will know that I recently went off on another adventure with Mr GeniAus. I had intended preparing a selection of posts each week as I journeyed through foreign lands but I only managed one before the temptations of new places became my main focus. Now that I am back in my geneacave with my new geneapet sitting beside me I am resuming this series.

I have just spent several hours catching up on blog post reading. I read some beaut posts from weeks ago but have decided to restrict this list to posts from the past week.


In no particular order I present my biased list for your reading pleasure.

1. Thanks Michelle for sharing more info about everyday life in my ancestors' area.

Thanks for the mention Jill :-)

Alex Daw said...

Thanks for including me this week Jill - particularly given I have been so slack of late.

Genie Jen said...

Thanks for the mention. I was away for 2 months and then unwell on return so have been missing in action. But your mention motivated me to finalise a post I'd started before Christmas. Thanks again for your Gems.
