Not only have I been pressed for time to blog myself, I haven't been able to keep up reading other's blogs recently. I took some time this morning to check out a few good ones.
Harold Henderson's Midwestern Microhistory has always been a favorite. His latest post on history book reviews is "History books of potential interest to genealogists."1 If you click on "books" in his right navbar you can see all of his posts related to books. One of the great things about blog labels is that you can easily go back and find things posted years ago on a related topic.
I have learned of quite a few history books that focus on issues, large and small, important to family history and to the history of women from Harold's posts. Check out:
Harold Henderson, “She fought the law, and sometimes won,” Midwestern Microhistory: A Genealogy Blog, posted 29 July 2009 (http://midwesternmicrohistory.blogspot.com/2009/07/she-fought-law-and-sometimes-won.html : accessed 8 May 2012).
