I told you about key genealogy blogs that you read daily. But wait, there’s more.
Here are even more genealogy blog sites that are must reading:
Tracing the Tribe: The Jewish Genealogy Blog – knowledgeable blogger Schelly Talalay Dardashti has one foot planted in her home in Israel and another with her relatives and family here in the States. Her articles go beyond resources focused on Jewish research and cover technology and opportunities that will help genealogists researching other lines as well. Schelly will be speaking on genealogy blogs at the Southern California Genealogical Jamboree next weekend in Burbank.
Another must read site is: Roots Television Megan’s Roots Worldwritten by Megan Smolenyak – the prolific lecturer and author. Her brief blog posts are tech savvy – often speak to DNA research – or to her break through research findings. She is a key leader in genealogy today.
Everyone reads Genea-Musings by Randy Seaver – his daily posts focus on his research on the Seaver family, new technology and items he hasspotted on other blogs – in the news and beyond – all of it useful.
To get the word out about which historical newspapers we’ll be adding in the months ahead – here is today’s list of newspapers for Arkansas and Maine. I will research and post another two States tomorrow.
Remember – this is an advance look at the list. Some of these titles are going live right now and some will not be added for months. We want you to know what our plans are. I usually hear about the new newspaper titles going live on GenealogyBank three times a month. I was posting a summary of the new content at the end of each month, but now I will post these new titles and their dates of coverage as soon as I get the word that they are being added. Thousands of newspapers are also being considered for addition to GenealogyBank. We continue to evaluate and add more titles that are not on this list. As soon as I know which titles are going live or have been added to the “Upcoming Titles” list – I will post the list to our blog. This way you will know which titles have been added to GenealogyBank and which titles are on the Upcoming Titles list.
