The Dark Secrets of a Tiny Tropical Island Occupied by Descendants of Pirates – I’ve always found Pitcairn Island so darn fascinating – but yeah, kinda creepy too.

OK2Explore – Thanks to Brooke Schreier Ganz for the good news about this index to Oklahoma births and deaths now being online! I just went to experiment and found the death index working, but the birth one offline, but this is presumably a temporary glitch.

Green’s Dictionary of Slang – The awesome dictionary of retro slang (yes, including awesome) you never knew you needed to bring your genealogical writing to life. A few of my favorites include abbey clogs, mek-mek, and tollywhackers!

10 reasons why Barack Obama Plaza is the best place on earth – One of the stranger outcomes of my sleuthing – been open for years, but still sort of mystifies me
