Out Of My Tree
http://www.outofmytreegenealogy.com/blog
Blog type: Canadian genealogy, Individual family history, Professional genealogist blog

I began compiling my family history as a teenager many years ago and have been researching ever since. About five years ago, I began studying methodology and taking courses on British and Canadian record groups from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies which is part of the Continuing Education Program at the University of St. Michael’s College in the University of Toronto.

Because my grandparents on both sides of my family immigrated to Canada from England in the early twentieth century, most of my personal research has been in British records. Researching in England from Canada can present challenges because of the distance from the original records but technology is making the world a smaller place and researching across an ocean becomes easier every day. Client work has given me experience in many Canadian records as well.

Blog type: Individual family history

Australian based family history blog with tips and stories mainly about Australian and English ancestors.

tufts family genealogy

Tufts Family Genealogy
http://tuftsgenealogy.blogspot.com
Blog type: Individual family history

This blog is mostly about the Tufts family in America descended from Peter Tufts who came to Charlestown Massachusetts from England before 1638. I hope to share many great stories of Tufts families and individuals. I also will share things I have found on other Tufts families besides Peter’s many descendants. They include Tufft families from Ireland and other areas of England and those that remain to be discovered. I will also explore the many other families related to the Tufts and share their stories as well. Hopefully this will include the family of my wife (Toland), and Staples, Bakers and Cummings from my mother’s ancestry.
