Ruth's Genealogy

“I don't know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.” -Abraham Lincoln

For which blog series are you most thankful? Who writes the series and how has it helped your genealogy blogging experience? Be sure to include a link to the series so others can join in the fun.

I have followed several types of blog series over the years, each helpful to my genealogical research, but in different ways. A few of my favorites include:

  • Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings often tries out new types of genealogical/research software and then writes about his experiences. Most helpful, Randy. Thank you!
  • Denise Olson of Moultrie Creek Gazette also shares her specialized knowledge of all things “genea-tech”, including WordPress, WeRelate, and iOs (Apple’s computer operating system) and digital publishing. Any time I have a computer or technical question, Moultrie Creek Gazette is my first stop!
  • Miriam Robbins of AnceStories: The Stories of My Ancestors has an ongoing series Online American Digital Archives and Databases that spotlights free digital resources for each US state. This is a must-bookmark for American genealogists!


52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2012) that invite genealogists and others to discuss resources in the genealogy community including websites, applications, libraries, archives, genealogical societies and more. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. If you do not have a genealogy blog, write down your thoughts on your computer, or simply record them on paper and keep them with your files.
