The days are getting noticeably shorter. Some schools in my area are already back in session. Sweaters are filling department store shelves. And I continue to be amazed — both good and bad — at the speed that it all happens.
Several of you had fun with the “32” theme for this week. Cathy Meder-Dempsey at Opening Doors in Brick Walls has probably the most colorful post (literally!) that I’ve seen in awhile. Check out “Johann Gorges and Anna Maria Botz – 2 of 32.” Cheryl Biermann Hartley did a fun twist on the theme with “Anna Odilia Greiner – Thirty-two Things I Know About Her” on her blog My Search for the Past.
My week has been spent packing up things for my daughter’s return to college, reviewing presentations, research, and writing. (My latest post is “Library Websites for Genealogy: More Than Just the Catalog.”)
Who did you write about this week? Was it one of your “32”? Whether you wrote about a 3rd-great-grandparent or someone else, leave a comment with a link to your post and a little bit about them. We’d love to read it! Also be sure to check out the Weeks 30 and 31 recap — it’s double the reading goodness!
