The abc of trending content

Websites offer genealogy blogs and more | Community

Family history researchers can find a wealth of information, data, and resources on the Internet, thanks, in part, to the hundreds of genealogy blogs available.

A helpful list of the “Top 100 Genealogy Blogs,” at http://tinyurl.com/y95fk7cr, is a good place to start. Ancestry and FamilySearch top the list, but it would be wise to browse through the list to find others that offer expertise in specific subjects. For example, No. 15 lists author John Grenham’s Irish Roots; No. 18 is the National Genealogical Society’s Upfront with NGS. Dutch, Czech, Scottish, Mexican, Canadian, French and Australian Genealogy are some of the other topics covered and one can sign up for regular delivery of posts, some of which are weekly, monthly, etc. and written by a variety of experts such as Amy Johnson Crow, Arlene Eakle, Judy Russell (The Legal Genealogist), and DearMYRTLE (who has a new blog, Myrt’s Musings.)

It should be noted that many blogs also exist that pertain to American History. These include The National Museum of American History, AHA (official blog of the American Historical Association); History Net: Where History Comes Alive – World & US History Online; Teaching American History; Chicago History Museum; and American Civil War Blog.

Magazine articles also provide a wealth of informative reading. For example, GenealogyMagazine.com, accessible from http://tinyurl.com/yauzxtcs, offers advice from such experts as Myra Vanderpool Gormley, Rhonda R. McClure, and Winston DeVille, and one can click on “articles” from the toolbar across the top and find links to articles such as “Chopping a Branch Off Lizzie Borden’s Family Tree,” “Did Your Ancestor Sign the Declaration of Independence?” and…
