Since my blog has now reached primary school level having its 5th birthday recently, I thought it might be an idea to relink some of the series I’ve responded to over the years. I know I often enjoy making discoveries among blogs by genimates who I didn’t know “back in the day”.
In 2012 I wrote a 52 weeks series entitled Beyond the Internet, to explore the varied records which aren’t available online. This series led to the inclusion of my blog in Family Tree Magazine’s Around the World in 40 Blogs.
I wonder how many of the records have now been digitised? Time moves fast in the geneasphere.
I’ve completed two April A to Z challenges. For 2012 I focused on the heritage places for me and my families, writing my posts on this blog. In 2013 I changed tack and introduced my readers to a tour of Australia’s north and some Aussie-isms via my Tropical Territory blog.
If you’re keen to give the A to Z challenge a whirl in 2015, then here is the link, quite a few geneabloggers have taken the plunge over the years. It works best if you pre-write your posts which leaves you time to comment on others’ posts.
Of course we’ve also had lots of blogging fun with various geneamemes initiated by a range of geneabloggers. You can find them in the drop-down box “Search by Category” on the right-hand sidebar.
If you haven’t yet encountered the blog, Worldwide Genealogy, a collaboration of geneabloggers around the globe, do yourself a favour and check it out for a wonderfully diverse perspective on genealogy. Worldwide Genealogy is the innovative brain-child of UK blogger Julie Goucher from Angler’s Rest blog.
