Recommendation: "Extreme Ancestry" blog, by Karen Batchelor

In 1976 Karen Batchelor began her genealogy research. She later became the first African American woman to successfully join the Daughters of the American Revolution, through her documented descent from a white Revolutionary War soldier. (The battle for a member through descent from an African American Revolutionary soldier was still a few years away.)

In 2011 Karen started a blog, Extreme Ancestry, in which she discusses her family history research, which has continued over the past thirty-odd years. This blog is a welcome addition to the genea-blogosphere. Its beautiful design and flowing prose make for a very enjoyable and informative read.

The following are my favorite posts from Karen's blog. I recommend that everyone take the time to read them and others:
