I enjoy reading blogs. Sometimes I get so involved reading other people’s blogs, I forget to write my own! Obviously most of the blogs I read are about genealogy, but I also enjoy blogs geared toward moms and homemaking ideas. I am rather “old fashioned” in that regard. Perhaps that’s why I relate to my female ancestors so well. I like to think we are not that different.
I like seeing what other bloggers are up to as well as their thoughts on current genealogical trends or new databases. Genealogy bloggers are a source of education for me. When someone posts about how they overcame a brick wall in their research, I often pick up hints or tips to try when attempting to scale my brick walls.
If you are looking for genealogy blogs to read, I encourage you to check out Geneabloggers.com. This is a great site with a frequently updated listing of over 1,000 genealogy related blogs. If you are looking for genealogy blogs of a certain type or category, you can search the listing that way as well.
So, what are some of the blogs to I read?
