Week In Review… 30 October 2016

It’s been a few weeks since my last Review so some of the things I’ll talk about, you might already be aware of but these are some of the things that I’ve found that have captured my attention:

Blogs, Articles and Websites:

  • The National Genealogical Society reminded us about the many reasons to write a Family History in its blog post of the same name:  http://upfront.ngsgenealogy.org/2016/10/many-reasons-to-write-family-history.html
  • Talking about writing your Family History.  Have you heard about #52Stories from FamilySearch.  Jen Thorpe gave an overview of the project on the Family Tree blog:  http://www.familytree.com/blog/share-52-stories-from-your-personal-history/
  • Once you write those stories you might want to enter them into the National Genealogical Society’s Family History Writing Contest which is open to NGS members with entries closing 15 December 2016.  For more details go to:  http://www.ngsgenealogy.org/cs/family_history_writing_contest

  • Gena Philibert-Ortega is going back to basics with her Introduction to Genealogy series.  Great for all those who are just starting out or want to go back to basics.  See the posts at:  https://blog.genealogybank.com/genealogy-101-1-gather-what-you-know.html
