Amanuensis Monday

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

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

An Amanuensis is a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another. Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging theme which encourages the family historian to transcribe family letters, journals, audiotapes, and other historical artifacts. Not only do the documents contain genealogical information, the words breathe life into kin – some we never met – others we see a time in their life before we knew them. A fuller explanation can be found here.

Amanuensis Monday is a popular ongoing series created by John Newmark at Transylvanian Dutch.
