High Fives - June 8, 2018

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.

One of my ancestors was a Poor Law Guardian in Lancashire. Search newspapers for Poor Law names. For other Poor Law and Workhouse info check out the link at the bottom of John’s article.

You can search or browse different ways including by name or by map.

What a fun idea! I have only a couple that I know of – perhaps I should look for more.

~by Allison Meier at JSTOR Daily
He is also mentioned in the back of this book I was just looking at recently, titled Wax Portraits and Silhouettes, published by the Colonial Dames of America. I use male and female Victorian-esque Silhouettes on my Ancestry profiles to distinguish my line of Grandparents.
