Follow Friday: 2 July 2010

Another "abbreviated" Follow Friday due to a heavy work and research week.

We have another poet in our midst! Leah Kleylein at Random Notes has written a poem – an illustrated poem, no less! – on her frustration at waiting for death certificates from the NY DOH (did you read that they way I initially did?): "And now, let's see what's happening in 'Poetry Corner.'" Click on the illustration to enlarge it and get a good view of the captions. Familiar emotions….

Cindy has a really perplexing mystery at Everything’s Relative – Why was her father placed in foster care (in Frederick County, Maryland) for several years? Several suggestions on places to check have already been provided; anyone else who might have dealt with a question like this have any ideas? “Madness Monday: My Foster Care Frustration – Can Anyone Help?”

Alarming news about the future form and availability of the Canadian census is covered by M. Diane Rogers at Canada Genealogy, or, ‘Jane’s Your Aunt’ in “Are Canada’s Future Historical Censuses in Jeopardy?”

The eternal question – what do we do with tons of photographs – is posed by Lorine McGinnis Schulze at Olive Tree Genealogy Blog in “Floundering in a Sea of Photographs” and some excellent suggestions are provided in the comments.
