Knappster - The Genealogue

Knappster (User #77551) maintains a blog called The Genealogue which makes the usually staid topic of genealogy fun in a bloggy sort of way. Subtitled "Genealogy news you can't possibly use!" it's a fun read. The first page includes posts on topics like "the first possible use of the emoticon?" and someone cleaning out their mom's basement and finding a civil war discharge signed by Abraham Lincoln. You might also enjoy the collection of Top Ten Lists including Top Ten Banned Family History Books. Chris's Blogger profile lists his profession as "Unprofessional Genealogist" so you may want to take his Exclusives with a grain of salt.

emjaybee -- grabapple and smalltruethings

emjaybee (User #18778) has a hopscotch of websites past and present. Her profile links to Grabapple with six years of posts and another few years of blogging before that. Then it takes a turn and becomes, briefly Grabapple on Wordpress with a few more posts and another redirect. Finally we touchdown at SmallTrueThings, longer posts same strong reflective voice and hey a Flickr sidebar. A nice meander through the personal blog of a longtime MeFite.
