I read several genealogy blogs on a daily basis. Today, thanks to the Genealogy's Star blog I learned of the National Archives Experience Digital Vault. Images of artifacts selected by the National Archives are viewable and linked to other related items. I could spend hours there!
One interesting thing I stumbled on were illustrated family records that were submitted as proof of relationship for Revolutionary war pension claims. These family records were intricately drawn and, to me anyway, resemble the artwork of needlepoint samplers of the time.
To view more of these, use the keywords "illustrated family record" when searching the Digital Vault.

The entries can be found under the "Records" tab above.
