Blog type: Canadian genealogy, Genealogy society blog

Welcome to our brand new Alberta Family Histories Society Blog!

We are excited to be joining many other genealogical societies who are practicing “Genealogy 2.0″.  What is that you ask?

It is the interaction and engagement online with our members and readers. That’s what it is!

You may have heard it more commonly called Web 2.0 and it includes social networking such as the use of blogs, Twitter, and Facebook.  In the genealogy online world this interaction is called Genealogy 2.0.

We will be highlighting events, research, our library holdings, volunteers and many other topics on the blog. See the related links below for 25 Great Topics for Genealogical Society Blogs.

The blog and other Genealogy 2.0 interaction will be a complement to the many wonderful resources, newsletters, events and web pages currently offered by the Alberta Family Histories Society.

family history fun

Family History Fun
http://familyhistoryfunforall.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Canadian genealogy, Individual family history

My name is Kelly and I am an addict!  Addicted to genealogy that is.

So what am I going to do about it? Well blog about it of course!

I’m super excited to be starting up this blog. I have some ideas of where I would like to take it, but if you have thoughts of what you’d like to see, post a comment below!

I am not an “expert genealogist” like I see so many people claim to be, rather I am simply someone who loves the action of learning about my families history. Finding the old documents that help to unravel the mysteries is a great way to pass some time. I like the idea of being a detective! I think I chose the wrong career!

Hopefully with this blog I can share what information I have been gathering with some other amateur genealogists. Along the way I am sure to learn lots myself through my research and with others who will interact with me on here!

Old Stones Undeciphered
http://www.oldstonesundeciphered.blogspot.com/
Blog type: Individual family history

This blog is mainly for my children, Michael and Hallie. It is of their ancestors that I write. This would include my family [Wallen and Runyan] and their Dad’s family [Logsdon and Melvin] and all surnames related to those as we go back in time to great grandparents, great-great grandparents and so on. It is my hope that ALL family members would visit and read about those ancestors and that this blog will spark their interest in the history and story of their kin…who they were, their struggles, their lifestyles and the paths they chose to take on their steady march into the present.
