MONDAY BONUS: Friday’s Family History Finds

Friday’s Family History Finds was on hiatus while Dave and I were off on another travel adventure. I had very limited (and SLOW) internet connections, but I did bookmark a number of interesting blog posts that I skimmed and read when we got back home.

I just couldn’t bear to delete them from my saved list without sharing them, so here they are, covering 22 September – 13 October 2017.
