The dark side of genealogy

Today’s Saturday Sharing comes from the DNAeXplained – Genetic Genealogy blog.

DNA testing can be a great tool for finding lost relations and closing up those doggone nagging holes on the genealogical tree. However, just because one person is all gung ho about getting tested, doesn’t mean everyone else is. Sometimes, people aren’t going to want to share. And that’s ok. So when they say no, don’t push.

Sharing Saturday: A (fun) genealogy rant

Anyone who’s ever tried to hunt down (excuse me, search out) their family histories will have run across these situations at one time or another. So without further delay, today’s Sharing Saturday post is a riff by Clue Wagon called Ancestor Hate Mail.

Sharing Saturday: Ancestors at Rest

Mithian_Cornwall

Cornwall is another one of those places on my To Visit list, but up until now, I was just interested in going there to see the ocean views and maybe tramp around on a couple of walking trails. Ancestors at Rest is a blog set in Cornwall, and features some terrific photos/exploration notes.

It appears to be a static blog (similar to what BTG was at one time), but maybe if enough people check out this By Day, We All Miss Thee post, maybe the owner will be persuaded to begin posting again.

Sharing Saturday: A tour of Brompton Cemetery, London

It’s stormy weather times 2 over in my neck of the woods, so when I stumbled across these posts from Esteban Coll, I knew I had to share them with you.

Brompton Cemetery is one of the Magnificent Seven Victorian cemeteries in London, and is definitely one of the places to go to see interesting carvings, headstones, and remembrances. Esteban’s done a great job in photographing some of the more unique aspects of this location. Enjoy!
