The George Peabody Library – Check. Out. This. Library. Happy to have married in New Zealand, but this would be a close 2nd choice for my wedding.
You’ll have to click through to see as it’s whole-screen. Might also want to browse through the photo gallery.

Marcel’s Letters: A Font and the Search for One Man’s Fate – Just blurbed a fun history mystery book. Rarely do this as I don’t have much time to read for pleasure, but it was an orphan heirloom case, so couldn’t resist!
‘Cake Boss’ talks about the importance of family, legacy – Interesting read about his Italian heritage.
How To Plan The Trip Of A Lifetime With Your DNA – I’ve worked with a high end travel company to plan specialized roots travel, so have no problem with that, but is it just me or is this DNA travel stuff a case of oversell?
Who’s had experience with Living DNA? Can you offer any insights?
I suppose I’m wary of them because I once caught a tweet of theirs that essentially said that DNA testing was the best/only way to go (a tweet which they subsequently deleted after I brought attention to it).
To be clear, I am as much a fan of genetic genealogy now as when I began waaaay back in 1999, but I’m always concerned when I see a vendor that seems – from my perspective – to be over-promising as it tends to lead to a backlash for genetic genealogy as a whole (i.e., media attention claiming to reveal the hype).
