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

When it comes to genealogy events, our cup runneth over lately. There are so many fabulous family history events being held across the globe. For which one are you most grateful? Is it an annual event or a one-time thrill? Who runs the event? Why is it special?

While probably not be precisely defined as an “event”, nevertheless I am always happy to see new records made available at I pay for subscriptions to both and and think both are well worth the money for the amount and availability of records (as you can see, I tend to be a wee-hours-of-the-morning genealogist!), but still I seem to be most pleased when FamilySearch presents a new free database.

Kinda like having Black Friday every week of the year!


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.
