One of the presentations that I attended at RootsTech was led by Tami Glatz of the Relatively Curious About Genealogy blog. Her presentation was called “Cool Tools to Enhance Your Online Research.” One of the tools she covered was her very own — her Internet Genealogy toolbar. I just downloaded it myself, but it looks very promising in terms of the links and resources it contains. I encourage all of you to check out her blog and the toolbar, if you haven’t already. The toolbar can be downloaded from a link at the very top of her blog. Enjoy!
Everyone knows I love old houses. Therefore, I must love Old House Dreams. And how could I not? Check out Part 1 and Part 2 of her list of favorite houses. I track this blog and especially the houses near me that she highlights, but they’re all gorgeous and chock full o’ history. Follow her on Twitter so you don’t miss any!
I really enjoy reading Valerie‘s blog, Begin with ‘Craft,’ but I’m especially liking her recent series about the homes of her ancestors. Her post on ordering replacement WWII medals may be helpful to those of you with veterans in your family trees. Valerie’s research is concentrated in Georgia in South Carolina.
Travis LeMaster at TJLGenes is a prolific blogger and his blog is quite well-rounded. He contributes to a lot of the genealogy blogging themes, but also shares his progress on his personal genealogy research and offers tips. A great technique he recently shared was to apply a SWOT analysis to your genealogy research.
I’m so looking forward to meeting Kerry at Rootstech in February!
Here’s another fab FGS10 attendee to follow: Greta Koehl of Greta’s Genealogy Blog. I don’t think she’s on Twitter (someone please comment below with her handle if I’m mistaken), so be sure to set your reader to follow her blog.
Added bonus on this Follow Friday is she posts very thorough Follow Friday posts herself, so you’ll get great reading suggestions by following her.
And she has two Graveyard Rabbit blogs:
