I love reading genealogy blogs because there are so many great writers out there who freely share their knowledge of history, geography, research resources, how to tips and tricks, and process resources (all that tech-related stuff), not to mention all those great personal family stories. Many Geneabloggers share by writing individual posts (with great detail and photos). Many more, after a great webinar presented by and with a little additional gentle prodding from Thomas MacEntee, have put together Research Toolboxes that list their favorite websites with links.
Are you a Geneablogger? Do you have a Research Toolbox on your blog? If so, do you keep it up to date? Does your Toolbox address a particular niche in genealogy or is it's scope wide-ranging? Why not share the link to your Toolbox page with the rest of us, either on Google+ or by directing us to your blog? Have you found a particular Toolbox especially useful? If so, why not share that with us as well. These Toolboxes are great additions to our genealogy arsenal - why not check them out.
Here are five to get you started:
- Destination: Austin Family (Thomas got the Toolbox ball rolling for me ~ check out his Research Toolbox)
- Ancestrally Challenged (an amazing blog with great pages including My Research Toolbox page)
- Genealogy for Novices (a terrific blog with great resources for Swedish research via Links page)
- Greta's Genealogy Bog (no that's not a typo - check out My Genealogy Toolbox page)
- I'll Be Seeing You (from a new blog, check out the Genealogy page for website and offline resources)
Here at Scandia Musings & More, I have a Favorite Websites page that lists my go to resources. It is a work in progress. Right now I have a number of Swedish, Norwegian, and Minnesota websites. If you are looking for your Swedish or Norwegian ancestors, check out my Favorite Websites page. Do you have any websites you would add? If so, why not drop me a line (at Google+, comment here or send me an email). Thanks so much.
