Ancestor Sleuth Hound

Blog type: Cemetery, Cemeteries, Family

Hello and thank you for visiting my website. My name is David Walton, and I’ve been researching my family’s genealogy for years in the Louisville, KY area.

There’s nothing more thrilling than discovering a long-lost relative — whether living or dead — while digging into your family’s past.

At the same time, it’s not uncommon to uncover a dark family secret or scandal that was never intended to be unearthed! And yes, I’ve encountered my share of surprises.

When not researching my family roots, I can be found traveling around Kentucky and Tennessee in my current job with Uncle Sam. Before that, I worked as a features writer and entertainment columnist at a major metropolitan newspaper.

I created this site in the hopes of inspiring others to pursue their lineage by sharing my own perceptions and experiences. So again, thank you for checking out AncestorSleuthHound.com.

Genealogy Junkie

Blog type: DNA, Family, United Kingdom

Initially started the website for documenting my family history and to encourage newly identified cousins to undergo DNA testing, and the blog was for  “cousin baiting”.  But the genetic genealogy part of the website has mushroomed and the blog is now including postings on genetic genealogy and DNA.  See http://www.genealogyjunkie.net/ for more information.

Meet You In Ohio

Meet You In Ohio
http://nelsonrainsgenealogy.blogspot.com
Blog type: Family, Ohio

My name is Cody Nelson.  This blog will be the home for all of the collecting and researching I do in terms of family history and genealogy.  The six main surnames I will be researching, Nelson-Mender, Rains-Eberts, and Malblanc-Whalen.  Any great number of surnames will make an appearance from time to time.

Posts will contain the following, with at least one big update post a month

  • New information (New ancestors, pictures, records)
  • Recaps of trips to places where ancestors once lived, possibly to distant still living relatives.
  • Cultural recipes where necessary (German pork and sauerkraut on New Year’s Day, Irish corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day)
  • What I’ve learned (research techniques, methods)

I will not be spamming posts to my Facebook every time, so if you would like to know when a new post is up, follow by email subscription.

My Family History
http://marthafamilyhistory.blogspot.com
Blog type: Family

This is a blog where I post the information I have for my personal family tree. I’m hoping that others will find some of the posts to be of use to their own research. I’m also totally willing to share information with others. All of the images I post here are free to be used for personal, genealogical reasons. Please contact me before you publish any of them though. Also, contact me if you’d like any of the PDFs I mention having, or would like full sized jpgs of any of the images I post.

Vita Brevis

Blog type: Genealogy society, Research

Welcome to Vita Brevis, the blog of the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Vita Brevis is designed to offer the reader short essays by the Society’s expert staff on their own research as well as news of the greater genealogical community.

As the nation’s oldest genealogical Society, the NEHGS collection has always contained books and manuscripts on other subjects than New England; now, with its growing database collection, NEHGS is truly a national – and an international – resource for family history.

Vita Brevis will include short posts on research methods – applicable to a variety of genealogical subjects – as well as posts on results. Like a mosaic, these posts will, in time, form a new collection for the genealogical researcher to explore.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
