Cruising around the blogosphere and the web to find hope and inspiration in Genealogy, and Space Exploration. For some reason I dove into history and then leaped into the future.

Here is a helpful blog site which describes determining strategies and goals in conducting family research and includes links to other helpful links:

Here is another interesting story related to genealogy but a different twist in that the article focuses on saving and restoring an 1841 American whaling ship. A small group of  passengers with unique interests have opportunity to sail on the historic ship:

Here is yet another touching and self-searching poem by Source of Inspiration. The writer reminds us to look to our Creator who wants what’s best for us:

Finding Hope and Inspiration in Poetry, Photography, and Genealogy!

Time once again for another Sunday drive around the blogosphere looking for blogs which are inspirational and hopeful. This past week, I looked at various posts centered on photography, poetry, and genealogy.

To begin with I have found some inspirational poetry on these two blog sites:

Here is a blogger, John Thomas Dodds, who is committed to writing a new poem every day. He has quite a collection of poetry and photographs. To me each poet I have found while cruising around the blogosphere is incredibly unique and one can catch a glimpse of the writer’s personality when reading their creative work:

Another blogger, Shawn L. Bird, who’s an author and poet also her has own hopeful and inspiring collection of poetry and you can find some her wonderful work here:

Now on to photography; I just simply admire beautiful and unique photography and found myself gazing at the work of these talented bloggers this past week:

Here is a very unique photo artist who specializes in beautifully unique photography. This blogger is truly an artist behind the camera:

And finally, a new category! I have an interest in genealogy research and have found several blog sites about it:

Here is a blogger who shares informational tips, his insights, and his own family research. He also includes links to other genealogy sites:

Here is another blogger who has conducted extensive genealogy research and has discovered some very interesting family history. He shares some of family stories here. His research discoveries are inspiring me to resume my own family research which I am taken a long break from. Enjoy reading:
