Week #1 – Blogs

Week 1 – Blogs: Blogging is a great way for genealogists to share information with family members, potential cousins and each other. For which blog are you most thankful? Is it one of the earliest blogs you read, or a current one? What is special about the blog and why should others read it?

This challenge runs from Sunday, January 1, 2012 through Saturday, January 7, 2012.


52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2012) that invite genealogists and others to discuss resources in the genealogy community including websites, applications, libraries, archives, genealogical societies and more. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. If you do not have a genealogy blog, write down your thoughts on your computer, or simply record them on paper and keep them with your files.

When I began delving into the Twittersphere, I discovered the worldwide community of blogging, tweeting genealogist. While I follow more than I tweet these days, the first genealogist I recall following is Shauna Hicks of Melbourne, Australia. The trail of @hicksshauna led to her site Shauna Hicks History Enterprises. Her My Families page inspired some of my own pages.

Calling all Tweeters: check out my list – Genealogy – for a roll of fantastic tweeting genealogists.
