Keeping Busy With My Writing

Though my 52 Ancestors post last week was really short, it doesn’t mean I haven’t been writing lately. I haven’t shared much of my work-related writing here, so I thought you might like to see what I’ve been up to with my day job.

Breaking Down Marriage Records” was for the blog. Ever get confused about all of the names and dates on a marriage record? Don’t worry — you’re not alone. This post takes a marriage record from Grayson County, Texas and explains each part.

Women of the West” was for the blog. It highlights a gem of a book with short biographies of more than 1,100 women in western states. It’s a cool resource that makes me wish I had a relative out there!

The piece I enjoyed writing the most was “Ohio Resources: Family History Sources in the Buckeye State.” That should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me! I love opportunities to talk about Ohio research. Hmm… maybe I’ll start sharing a bit more Ohio-based information here on No Story Too Small.

    Wow, you have been busy. I was really happy to see the article about Ohio resources. I help a lot of people in my local FamilySearch center so I am constantly faced with new locations based on their research goals. Ohio is not a state I have family lines in so I have no personal research experience with Ohio records. Your article will be very helpful the next time someone comes in with Ohio based research goals.

    Please do share your Ohio research her. I have started a page on my blog drafts to store resources. (Created a “new” page and then labeled it “pending” rather than draft). If I store that info on my computer or a bookmark, I know I’ll forget where it is. Just for double safety, I also saved it on Evernote, which I’m trying to learn to use. So you see, what you do is of great value. I was born in Ohio and nearly all my family wound up in Ohio–at least for a generation or two– before some of us headed farther west.
