    Hey Julie, I always enjoy checking out your Friday Finds! You’ve got a link error for the “By Their Deeds” Online Article. It currently links to the GeneaPress announcement of Marian Pierre-Louis’ New England Research podcast. I think this link is correct: http://onerhodeislandfamily.com/2013/01/19/by-their-deeds/
