Geneabloggers and Amy Coffin of We Tree are hosting a weekly contribution to our genealogy blogs. I am receiving the notifications via Facebook and every week I look at them and think about how I'd like to participate... and then I click "Not attending." In an effort to get back into my own genealogy, I am going to attempt to participate a little more!
I have been subscribing to the genealogy lessons that are emailed to me free of charge from USA Family Tree. To be quite honest, I'm only reading them sporadically. I happened to read the one emailed to me most recently and it suggests picking a line and focusing on that; quality, not quantity. I know this is obvious, but I obviously needed a reminder of that since most of the time I feel like I'm all over the place. I've decided that I'm going to focus on my paternal line and specifically the paternal line in Ohio, since there seems to be a lot of potential information there and it is the line that is most interesting to me at this time. I feel excited again!
This week's challenge is to find 5 blog sites that you don't already read and read them for 5 days. I've decided to go the route of finding blog pages that may help me in my own interests: Ohio and continuing education in the subject of genealogy. I've chosen the following:
1. Exploring Almost Forgotten Gravesites in Ohio ~ I chose this one because of locality, but also because cemeteries fascinate me for some reason.
2. Ohio's Yesterdays ~ This one looks like it will have some interesting stories about the people and places in Ohio.
3. The Educated Genealogist ~ This one I picked mainly for the title. :)
4. Arlene Eakle's Genealogy Blog ~ Hoping to learn some things from this one.
5. Geneapprentice ~ I chose this one because the author is pursuing a career in genealogy and is taking classes. Thought it might be interesting.
