My blog, Layers of the Onion, deals with issues related to family history, research, travel and artwork.  Below are some genealogy articles that you may find of interest.  They are culled from my blog and address issues I've encountered in my own family research.

At a recent genealogy conference I attended a session by Ellen Cassedy and Lois Ogilby Rosen on how literature, both fiction and nonfiction, can inform our genealogy research.  You can read about the session below under Books That Inform Your Search.  That discussion inspired me to combine my reading list with the list that was provided by the speakers and included inputs from other readers.  You can download a copy of it
here.
