My High Fives - Intro

When I read other bloggers' lists of favourite posts of the week, I sometimes wonder ... Hey!! What about this one, or that one??  Truth is we probably don’t even have the same reading list! Not everyone has the same criteria for choosing which blogs to read. I talked about this the other day in the post Making a Blog List.

So I decided I would make my own list once a week of blog posts or articles that spoke to me particularly. Doing this makes it easy for me to refer back to these posts, and perhaps gives readers a chance to discover other blogs.

These are my High Fives -  March 3, 2017

Best Place for Genealogy Tourism in France? Montbeliard!
~by Anne Morddel at The French Genealogy Blog
Enlightening! I never thought of Mennonites and Protestants as living in France.

Bridge Inn, 1 Maudland Rd
~by Steve Halliwell at Preston's Inns, Taverns and Beerhouses
I just found this blog this week and I intend to follow it more closely. I have Singletons in the Preston area and one of them went to Liverpool to run a pub. I believe he must have had some previous experience?

Dutch term - Pieremagoggel
~by Yvette Hoitink at Dutch Genealogy
This made me smile and reminds me of the annual Silly Boat Regatta in Nanaimo

Century Property Owner's Certificates Mississiquoi
~Mississquoi Genealogy
A branch of my ancestor's family lived in this area

The Elusive Potters of Goulbourne
~by Patricia Greber at My Genealogy Life
I too have female ancestors whose families elude me.


  1. Wow, I can't believe I made your list! Thank you so much, I appreciate that you took the time to read my post and liked it enough to give me a mention! FYI - my surname is Greber!

    1. Sorry, I knew that. I should turn off auto correct when writing posts!

  2. Going to check a couple of these blogs - although they all seem interesting :D

    1. Have been at the Bridge Inn, 1 Maudland Rd because I too had ancestors in that area (my Dad's parents)so will be looking to see if I can find something on an ancestor.

    2. Oh how nice! I 'd love to make the trip some day.

  3. I have some of the Montbeliard Protestants in my family tree. The original Lunenberg settlers came from there as well as Prussia.

    1. Interesting! It's the first time I've heard of them.
      I have been to lovely Lunenberg, but don't know about its history. Thanks!!

  4. I have Cowell and Turner ancestors from Preston and Garstang.

    1. My Carter and Singleton ancestors are from Preston, Garstang, Stalmine and Pilling.


Leave me a note to tell me you were here! Thanks for visiting.
