Remembering Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – 2013

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today, Monday January 21, 2013, is the day we set aside as a nation to remember the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (his actual birthday was on 15 January).

Many genealogy bloggers are taking time to post at their own blogs as to the impact that the Civil Rights Movement had upon them and their ancestors.  Below are posts from the members of GeneaBloggers:

Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories Returns for 2012

Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories

GeneaBloggers – the genealogy community’s resource for blogging – announces the return of the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories beginning Saturday, December 1, 2012.

What started as a bi-annual event December 2007 as a way for genealogy bloggers to capture and document the memories of family holiday traditions has now grown into an annual event with its own blog. Visit the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories at http://adventcalendar.geneabloggers.com and learn how you can participate in this unique online genealogy event.

Beginning December 1, 2012, each day will present a specific blogging prompt such as Christmas Cookies and bloggers will be asked to write about their memories related to the theme and their family history. A new prompt will appear each day through December 24, 2012.

Bloggers who have participated in the past can join in the fun again by either repeating their posts from previous years or creating new posts. Besides creating an on-line journal of Christmas memories, some bloggers have even gone on to create books of their previous Advent Calendar posts to share with family and friends.

Don’t’ forget to check out the list of blogging prompts and get started on capturing your childhood Christmas memories today!

Happy Thanksgiving 2012

 

Happy Thanksgiving 2012 from GeneaBloggers

As many genealogy bloggers are either traveling over the river and through the woods, or getting ready to host family, most of us will take some time and say thanks – either through a blog post, in a prayer, or perhaps aloud to our family and friends.

I would like to thank all the readers of GeneaBloggers for helping to build a vibrant community of genealogy and family history bloggers.  Whether engaged on Facebook, or Twitter or blog posts, it continues to amaze me what a great time it is to be a genealogist and family historian!

Thank you everyone for your support of GeneaBloggers!
