Today is Madness Monday. If you have your own genealogy or family history related blog, you can participate in Madness Monday. What is it?

Madness Monday is a daily blogging theme used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites.

To participate in Madness Monday simply create a post with the main focus being an ancestor who may have suffered from some form of mental illness or an ancestor who drives you “mad” because you have trouble locating them or locating more information about them. You can read more about Madness Monday here at gene@pedia.

blog genealogist in training

Blog of a Genealogist In Training
http://genealogist-in-training.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Individual family history

Well, after reading the posts on an endless number of genealogy blogs with all kinds of emphasis, it occured to me that none were really reaching out to the “Genealogist in Training”. By that term I mean the serious genealogist who is striving to become a professional by turning what may once have been a “hobby” into a career, but whose overall skills may not quite be up to professional standards yet. I’ll probably be posting about everything from my experiences, past and present, to questions that I have, to whatever may be irking me on that particular day. Most importantly, I hope that this blog will reach out to others in the same boat.

Blog type: Individual family history, Massachusetts genealogy, New England genealogy

Welcome to all genealogists. My name is Wendy, and I have been passionate about genealogy for almost 20 years. I have been actively researching it for 5, since I became a stay-at-home mom.

This blog’s particular focus is on New England genealogy. It will mostly cover Plymouth County, Massachusetts to begin, and then work out from there. Sometimes I may discuss other items of interest – websites, magazines, societies, other areas of the world – but the main focus will be New England.

So I hope you will find this blog useful and interesting, and join me in my journey!
