New Kid on the Block:

Pat Garrett from Family Stories is my favorite new kid on the block at GeneaBloggers.  I loved her recent post, Alexander Boyd and the Boyd Tavern.  The post is beautifully written, features a wonderful picture of the tavern, and is accompanied by some great follow-up links.  You should definitely check it out – it’s a wonderful read.

The Misfit’s November 2012 Suggested Read:

The Tar Heel State

When I was in school, I took a lot of American and local history classes.  I did a lot of reading in those classes, because I always wanted to know the material.  The best book I was ever assigned to read from my history classes was The Tar Heel State: A History of North Carolina by Milton Ready.  The book is packed full of so much information that I’ve read it several times and refuse to sell it, because I still use it as a reference book for my genealogy research.  If you’re interested in North Carolina history – you should pick up a copy of this book…  you won’t regret it.

November is officially over and the holidays are just getting started.  Before I start worrying about all of my holiday shopping – I think I’ll get a little shut-eye.  It’s past my bedtime!
