Blogging in the act of finding ancestors

If I actually read all the good blogs that describe the proprietor's own research struggles, I'd never get any work of my own done! But ever since I read this post from Jennifer's "But Now I'm Found: Genealogy in Black and White" from Chicago/NW Indiana, I've kept her widget on my protopage home page collection for easy checking:

"I am so excited!" she wrote. "I received an email from someone who had the actual receipt naming my great-great-great grandfather."

Actually, the receipt doesn't just name her great-great-great grandfather Solomon; it's a receipt for him acknowledging his being sold.

Read the whole thing.
