From Geneabloggers....

Follow Friday is a daily blogging prompt used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites.

To participate in Follow Friday,  simply create a post in which you recommend another genealogy blogger, a specific blog post, a genealogy website or a genealogy resource.  Tell us why they are important to the genealogy community and why we should follow.

A special thanks to Earline Bradt of Ancestral Notes for suggesting Follow Friday as a daily blogging theme!

My pick for this week comes recommended to me by +Jill Ball aka Geniaus who is in my Genealogy circle on Google+.  

Jill reminded me that +Liz Pidgeon is the recipient of the 2012 Margery Ramsay Scholarship for her project "“Local and Family History Services in the UK and USA” .  Liz is also the Local and Family History Librarian at Yarra Plenty Regional Library, in Melbourne, Victoria.  

Liz recently flew to the UK on a study tour to attend WDYTHYA (Who Do You Think You Are) and to research various libraries, archives and the like.

If you are planning a trip to the UK and wondering which repositories you should visit,
Liz's blog Infolass is proving a goldmine this week.  There are great pictures of each place she visits - external and internal - so you get a real sense of where she is and hopefully find it if you go there one day.  Liz tells you a bit about the role of each place, what you can find there and provides links to online catalogues and other resources.

You can like Liz's page on Facebook too if that's more your sort of thing.

Well done Liz!
