So, Dear Readers, the ChallengeAZ continues apace as people write on their themes. It being a damp and warmish time of year, the time when one can find mushrooms of exquisite taste, the glorious cèpe, the deceptively joyous trompette de la mort, two contributors have chose to write about mushrooms, champignons, in French, both giving recipes. (Our own post on the theme can be found here.)
- Sur la piste de nos ancêtres en Périgord tells how to cook the heavenly cèpes.
- Verogénéalogie gives a recipe for wild mushrooms cooked in spices.
- GénéaTrip (delightful throwback to the 1960s, that title) explains chromosomes.
- A l'ombre de mon arbre gives a somewhat breathless account of the deportation of the Paris Communards to New Caledonia. You can see our many posts on the subject here.
- Antequam... la généalogie! explains apprenticeship contracts.
- Broderies ancestrales goes into depth about the conseil de famille, the all-powerful family council.
- Feuilles d'ardoise gives a lesson in using Geneanet's family trees.
- Généalogie d'une famille ordinaire writes about context, the first we have come across in French to do so and it is most welcome. We wrote of historical, geographical, and social context in our case study on Thomas Mansell, and we highly recommend Elizabeth Shown Mills's talk on the subject.
- Sur nos traces, the blog on French Jewish genealogy, writes about Jewish names.
Happy reading...and cooking!
