REMINDER: New/Updated Websites, Blogs, Facebook, and Newspaper Articles

Don’t forget to check my blog every Monday morning for my New/Updated Websites, Blogs, Facebook, and Newspaper Articles.

There will be newspaper articles that will cover such stories as Harry Holman, an archivist from Charlottetown, PEI. who is retiring from government after years of service, an article that looks at Nova Scotia’s food history, and a storyteller that has gathered the stories of Canadian soldiers, plus Blogs, Facebook, and Websites.

There is something of interest for everyone!
