Changes - Editing

I just wanted to note that I did edit a few of my previous posts. Most of the editing was for grammatical and spelling errors, but I did add the rest of the title and publishing information of the history books that I have recently posted. I added that information to make it easier for other people to find those books and to let other people know which edition of the book that I was describing.

Another Interesting History Book

This past fall, I finished reading another history book, To Rule the Waves: How the British Navy Shaped the Modern World by Arthur Herman (Harper Collins: New York, NY, 2004). The book is a history of the British navy from its beginning under the Tudors to the Falklands War. I found the book to be very interesting and fascinating.

I realize that this book has nothing to do with genealogy, but I have an interest in nautical history. Again, I recommend this book to anyone. My hope is that others who read this book will enjoy it as much as I have.

Background Change

I changed the background to this blog because I believed this background - I don't remember who created it, but it wasn't me - fits better with the subject of genealogy and history. The background colors remind me of historical documents.
