Church Record Sunday - St. Mary's Seminary & University Associated Archives - website that is one of the most significant repositories for relating the early history of the Catholic Church in the United States.

Treasure Chest Thursday - Google Patents Beta - patent registered by ancestor.
Since starting this blog I have made it a habit to read at least one new blog a week. This week has been a bonanza of new and interesting discoveries. What seems to happen is that I'll find a blog that catches my interest, then glance at the bloggers "favorites". Before I know it I'm five or so deep in new blogs. These blogs are as diverse as the people themselves. So without further ado here are a few of the "gems" of this week:
AnceStories: the stories of my ancestors
Grace and Glory
The Turning of Generations
These are all must follow blogs!
