All kinds of wonderful posts out there this week - some of them will make you say awww... and at least one may make you say ewww...
Susan at Nolichucky Roots, shared a two-parter written by a researcher of a surname they have in common. The story of James W McAdams, one of Susan's reverse orphan kinfolk is told here and here.

Mel Wolfgang has a wonderful post about family history researchers as storytellers in And Still I Write on his blog, Mnemosyne's Magic Mirror.

When the young 'uns roll their eyes about the dotty genealogist in the family, just have them read Laura's post, Why Old People Should Do Genealogy.

Greta made it through the clean-up of the flood in her basement that resulted from a rainstorm and put things in wonderful perspective in her entry, A Proper Place for Sentiment. Would that I have that kind of grace under pressure...

Okay, not really knowing what to expect, I cruised on over to a Thriller Thursday post at Debbie's blog, Mascot Manor Genealogy, and read about the Naked Turkeys that spelled the demise of her great-grandfather's turkey farm.

Looking for another source of online newspaper archives? Who knew Wikipedia had a list? I didn't until I read this entry at Tangled Trees...

Borrowing a phrase my from son, who isn't into genealogy at all...I say, other bloggers rock.

Thanks, Dee. I loved Alan's story - and loved having someone ELSE do the work this week.
