If you're like me, you hit a brick wall in your genealogy research now and then. It's just been lately that I discovered the many genealogical ideas, links to websites, and templates available for just a few moments of your searching time.

On several of these searches, I have found a web site that I didn't know existed. I found templates that are for more sophisticated than what I have been using until now (most of my templates are those that came out in the '90's and are so antiquated, and unable to use your computer to fill them in). I have fallen in love with Pinterest.

Here you will find so many helpful articles that you can read for weeks and never read the same article twice! As well as photographs, and ideas for getting young children involved in genealogy!

You are also given the option of following several of those who post on Pinterest. This means you will receive notification when someone you are following puts a new item on the site. And that can mean a breaking through of that nasty brick wall sometimes!

I highly recommend adding Pinterest to one of your genealogy sites bookmarked on your computer. At the very least, you can find some inspiration for either where to look next, or in your filing system!

Pinterest is a free program, and you can download the free app on your smartphone, which means you will be notified of new pins even earlier!

So, sign up today, and in the search function, simply type in genealogy. You'll see what I mean!

I highly recommend adding Pinterest to your genealogy research bookmark.

Did you guess where Those Places Thursday was?

It is the Greenbrier Hotel/Resort located in White Sulphur Springs, WV. It is here where the infamous "underground White House" was located. You can visit the bunker as part of the Greenbrier tour when you are there!

The Greenbrier has been in White Sulphur Springs since the 1700's. Although originally nothing more than a traveler's inn, it soon caught in with the elite for its Sulphur springs. People would come from around the world to bathe and to drink the waters which were touted as healing.

Today, the Greenbrier is home of the Greenbrier Golf Classic, and the spring training grounds for the football Saints team.

If you get the chance, come visit!
