Free Stuff, Cool Stuff and Nice Stuff

First, the free stuff:

Footnote.com is offering free access to its entire collection of newspapers throughout the month of May.  That’s a great deal.  Even if you’re not all that into genealogy, it’s fun to find your grandparents’ wedding announcement, articles on historical events, etc.  Check it out.  (Hat tip:  Thomas MacEntee at Geneabloggers)

Next, the cool stuff:

Jasia at Creative Gene recently ran a three part series on how to create composite photos like the ones at How to Be a Retronaut.  It’s a must-read.  I can’t wait to try it.

Finally, the nice stuff:

A very belated thank you to Sarah B. at Geneapprentice, Joanne Schleier at Keeper of the Records, and Nancy at My Ancestors and Me for granting me the Ancestor Approved award.  I’m very surprised and thrilled, especially since I’m so new to the online genealogical community.  I’m supposed to name 10 genealogical bloggers of my own to receive the award, but I’m pretty sure everyone has already been ancestorally-approved at this point, so I’ll just say:  thank you very much.  And also, if you personally hear from any of my ancestors about their approval of me, could you please ask them where Uncle Clarence is buried?  Because that dude is seriously hard to find.

Now if you need me, I’ll be lying in bed with a heating pad, watching bad TV.  Yesterday as I was teasing my husband for turning 40, I bent over to pick something up, and I did something Very Very Bad to my back.  Now I can hardly move.  I believe the medical term for this is “karma.”
