Two new blogs will prove of interest to many Missouri genealogists:
The State Library of Massachusetts now has a blog (available here) where you will discover information about library collections, acquisitions news, plus images of materials from their shelves. Recent posts include ones on historic maps of Chatham; preservation work being done on a printed pedigree chart and seals from the Vassall family; and one on essential New England books.
The Rhode Island Historical Society’s blog started earlier this year. It provides information about the society’s physical locations and hours, plus information about their collections. Recent posts include a poem by James Franklin, brother of Benjamin and the first printer in Rhode Island; a 1754 pamphlet concerning the elimination of debtor’s prisons; and the first Jewish calendar printed in America.
