My family history blogging is off to a slow start this month. The summer heat has arrived in DC, and I've been spending quality time outside. I am preparing for upcoming meetings, so my historical blogging doesn't look to be picking up too much any time soon. There are a few research lines percolating, and I am awaiting responses to several inquiries so there may be new results to describe later.
Here's a few items that have caught my attention in the past week:
Google Art Project now with Street Art
I am a big fan of street art. Yesterday Google's Art Project announced it was adding photos of street art to its Art Project (see their tweet here) and exhibits online at g.co/streetart. Some of my own street art photos can be found in previous posts highlighting Montevideo, Moscow, Buenos Aires, Durban, and Geneva.
Wave of Genealogy TV Programs Set for Summer
July and September will include new episodes of Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr.'s Finding Your Roots and Who Do You Think You Are? (see article). If you're a fan of PBS' History Detectives, they will also have new episodes starting in July focused on a single mystery (see http://www.pbs.org/opb/historydetectives/).
