Genealogy Blogging Beat – Sunday 20 April 2014

Easter Sunday
Today is Sunday 20 April 2014, and here is what’s available in terms of Daily Blogging Prompts and other related events in the genealogy blogosphere:

Items of Note

  • Each Sunday, Olive Tree Genealogy offers a new blogging prompt under the heading Sharing Memories. This week’s prompt: Memories of Grade 10 & 11. If you write your own blog and you are participating in this challenge, please use the hashtag #52SharingMemories if you are posting on Twitter or Google+.

Daily Blogging Prompts

Many genealogy and family history bloggers like to post to their blogs every day, but at times are at a loss for ideas. Take your inspiration from today’s Daily Blogging Prompts below – click on each prompt for a description. Prompts are a great way to create new content and you can participate in a community effort with other genealogy bloggers.

obscure ancestors and more

Obscure Ancestors and More
Blog type: Family

There are a lot of unidentified and, so far, unidentifiable individuals in my own lineage and in other families of interest. And some of the facts and conclusions I’ve found on the Internet are different from mine. In no special order. I’ll write about my most bothersome brick walls and some interesting ancestors and events. Has anyone uncovered information that will help solve my problems?

our family tree tales

Our Family Tree Tales
Blog type: Family

I’m a new blogger.  I started blogging in January in response to Amy Johnson Crow’s 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Challenge.  I enjoy finding out information about an ancestor and turning it into a narrative.

past-line discoveries

Past-Line Discoveries
Blog type: Family

Aviation Technician / Military Liaison & Adviser by day, Family History and Genealogy nut-job, all of the other time.

I blame my family for my absolute addiction to Family History. I still remember many of the stories told by my parents and grand parents about our family origins.

I hope to bring to light many of the facts and stories I have found by utilizing this blog. It is also my vision that I might be able to provide insight and assistance to those who are searching for their stories as well.
