Once in a while I like to recommend a blog or website. I have been reading Vita Brevis, the blog associated with AmericanAncestors.org, the website for the New England Genealogical Society for the last few months. The blog is informative and tells some great stories. Part of the reason for the success is that several people contribute to the blog, which keeps it fresh and entertaining. Even if you don't have ancestors from New England you will enjoy this blog as the stories are rich in American history and the examples given often have a wide application. Try it out today!
