Weekly Genealogy Picks

Weekly Genealogy Picks --August 8 to August 14
from genealogy blogs, newspaper articles and elsewhere

This week, the Geneablogging community lost one of its own.  Terry Thornton of the Hill Country of Monroe County, MS and Hill Country H.O.G.S. Webbpress blogs, and founder of the Association of Graveyard Rabbits, passed away on August 9, 2010.

Many have been posting memories and tributes.  Below are a few of them:
Most of us only knew him through the words he wrote, but those words were inspirational to many.  He was constantly encouraging others to share their stories. When he created the H.O.G.S. blog concept back in 2007, I joined up with a few modifications, and declared myself G.H.O.T.I. (pronounced 'fish.') My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends - online and off.
