Surname Saturday

If you are a Twitter user, follow us @geneabloggers and join us tomorrow for Surname Saturday. Participants “tweet” about the surnames they are researching using the #surnames hashtag in each tweet. You can then search for other surname entries over at Twitter Search. Also consider joining the Genealogy Surnames group over at Twitter Groups.
