She has categories of Periods; Art; War; Day in History; Religion; Genealogy; Cities; Regions and Countries; Academic; Antiques; Women; Entertainment; People; Odd and Interesting; Documents and Literature; and General History.

I appreciate being on Jessica's list! Other blogs on my Bloglines list, that I read every day, include Boston 1775, The Virtual Dime Museum, and Appalachian History.

There are a number of really interesting blogs on this list - I'm going to add some of them to my Bloglines list to give me more variety. I'm thinking about Scandalous Women for sure! Looks like I may find out more family history about some of my cousins (?) there.
