New Kid on the Block:

Of Graveyards and Things is my favorite new kid on the block at Geneabloggers.  I fell in love with the posts Mystery Monday: The Unidentified Friends and Family of Maria Jane (Peeples) Publicover Gloucester and Beverly, Essex, Mass – the accompanied photos are absolutely gorgeous.

Notable Posts From Other Bloggers:

The Misfit’s September 2012 Suggested Read:

North Carolina Pottery: The Collection of the Mint Museums

If you come from a North Carolina family who has ties to the pottery community – you really should read North Carolina Pottery: The Collection of the Mint Museums.  I found three of my ancestors in the book and was stoked to find not only photos of their art, but also brief descriptions about their families and background information on their work as potters.

September is over!  Now I’m going to kick back with a glass of wine and get started on next months posts.  :)

      Sierra,
      You are very welcome and thank you! I really enjoyed your post about taking your children along with you to the cemetery too. It hit home for me, because I’m constantly dragging my kids with me to one cemetery or another. :)
