Retreiving similar posts on this blog using Labels

As this blog grows, it will become increasingly difficult to go back to review similar posts to the one you are reading---should you wish to do so. I am assigning "Labels" to the posts. These are sort of like subject headings in library catalogs and other similar databases. These Labels show up as links at the bottom of posts. By clicking on one of these Labels you will retrieve all posts that share this Label. That way it will not be necessary to repeat everything in every post. If you want more background, click on the label and you will be able to see if there are other posts on the same or similar topics. For example, this post is labeled "Navigating this Blog". You will see this Label at the bottom of this post. So far there are no other labels on this topic. However, if you were reading a post about a TV show on a genealogical topic and clicked on "TV Shows", you would retrieve several items.
