"Dead Librarian" blog

My colleague at Richland County Public Library, Debbie Bloom, writes a very informative blog for South Carolina family historians. Her enthusiasm for South Carolina's local history and genealogy is contagious. The aptly named The Dead Librarian points genealogists to good resources relating to ancestors, dead people, and obituaries. She adds entries several times a month. Her latest post suggests useful genealogy blogs to read. If you're interested in South Carolina's dead folks, then by all means you should subscribe to her Dead Librarian blog.

As you may recall, several years ago, Debbie, Dennis Adams, and I did the grunt work behind the South Carolina Obituary Resources portal hosted at the South Carolina State Archives.
