Earlier today, we got notice of the TGS blog being submitted for the award by Heather at Nutfield Genealogy (thank you, Heather Rojo Wilkinson). I have returned to the Nutfield blog many times while trying to untangle some of the genealogical knots that seem to lurk about.
The award is sponsored at the following link; the rules are posted at the link (and are provided below). For item 2, look after the rules.
The following list contains my nominations.
- Heather Wilkinson Rojo at Nutfield Genealogy,
- Mark E. Miner at Miner Descent.
- http://engineermemes.blogspot.ca/ which is fairly new, and very relevant, blog.
- Rick Bookstaber at http://rick.bookstaber.com/, author of A Demon of Our Own Design
03/02/2013 -- Engineer memes is at blogspot.ca.
02/21/2013 -- Mark's blog has an interesting list of posts related to forebears prior to the 'puritan migration' that will motivate a few here (next post): Shakespearean ancestors. Evidently, Downton Abbey (I have not watched it, yet) has people thinking of the little realm of our ancestors. We can use the meeting meme (ala the 1692 turmoil) to cover the gamut from William's bit of ambition involving all sorts of inter-family squabbles. You see, Thomas' mixture (genes/memes) encapsulated that (as does all of our glorious selves, in one way or another). His life and choices exemplify much for us to try to know and understand.
02/07/2013 -- Found another blog of note: Gene expression (post at this time had a photo of John Quincy Adams). Note the criticism of The Seven Daughters of Eve. As I find them, I'll add 'em here.
