Follow Friday - Favorites

I am to the point in my blog reading career where I find a ton of great links that I'm sure you all will like. So I've decided to start a Favorites feature. I'll post the links I've found that either have great genealogy tips or are of historical interest. Enjoy!
Edward Ray, the Ghost of the Panama Canal, aboard the steamship "Panama" en route to the Canal Zone.
Even Lincoln had love problems: Abraham Lincoln to Mary Owens: "It's Not You, It's Me."
A Harrowing Homecoming: The Ghost of the Panama Canal
The diary of a Confederate girl: "Death seemed inevitable & I thought it was well to take it coolly."
A great reminder for farm research from Nancy at My Ancestors and Me: Farmers in Your Family Between 1850 and 1880?
Help with Ohio ancestors from Kathryn at Kathryn's Quest: Ohio Probate Records on Family Search
A war map: 1914: A Daily Mail War Map
A nursing story at My Genealogical Journey: Army Nurse

If you are interested in great history posts across the web, visit the Two Nerdy History Girls blog which has a great weekly featured called Breakfast Links and was one of my inspirations for starting my own favorites feature!

I really enjoyed "The diary of a Confederate girl" and scanned some of the other posts as well. Great find, Heather!
