High Fives - March 16, 2018

After a couple of months hiatus, I am bringing back my High Fives on Fridays. I like doing this segment because, besides bringing you some blog posts or bloggers you may not know, it forces me to read posts from my fellow bloggers, something I didn't have much time for lately, and greatly miss. 

High Fives are articles or blog posts I have read during the week that I find interesting, and perhaps are pertinent to my research. Sometimes there are only a couple and sometimes there are quite a few.

Have you ever saved photos from the trash? My brother was scanning all his photos then pitching them in the fire - I managed to salvage a few, phew!

My grandmother wouldn't have been caught dead in pants!!  But her sister, on the other hand, wore pants whenever she wasn't working. Interesting article!

Where else have you found a description of your ancestor?

~by Tracey Arial at Genealogy Ensemble
My husband's Nolin family is from the Ste Anne area of Manitoba, and I find this information helpful.

Another way to add to the description of our ancestors, is how they dressed.

When I am stuck I often start with a hunch and try to prove or disprove it. I do enter it on my family tree at Ancestry (best way to search for records) but I make a note on the birth line that I am not sure about this person, so others don't copy the wrong information.  

For more exciting weekend reading, see what posts these bloggers liked...

Saturday – Gail Dever, Crème de la Crème
