Geneology Blogs

Since you are reading this, you are aware of the information available in blogs.  Genealogy blogs are a goldmine of information.

The first blog that may come to mind is www.geneabloggers.com which hosts a genealogy blog resource list of over 3,000 blogs, information on educational webinars and conferences (and some are free!) and genealogy products.

If it’s citations that catch your interest, Elizabeth Shown Mills’ https://www.evidenceexplained.com is the premier resource.

Concerned about legal issues in genealogy, see Judy Russell’s, https://www.legalgenealogist.com

Are you overwhelmed with ‘stuff’, artifacts from your family and need some help? Try Denise Levenick’s http://thefamilycurator.com.

I wasn’t aware that immigrants coming into New York signed their own names. So, at least at this port, the common acceptance of the idea that immigration officers who wrote something that sounded like the name and therefore misspelled it, wasn’t necessarily true. I learned this from a blog! I haven’t sourced this information, but it gives food for thought. Want to read it for yourself?  Visit www.ancestralfindings.com.

I haven’t scratched the surface of blogs for family history. Do a web search for yourself and see what you find that intrigues you.

And keep us in mind here at the Greensboro Family History Center: www.greensborofhc.com
