This morning whilst I was consuming a bowl of Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut I was reading through my mail and I spotted a post from Jill who blogs at Geniaus. As I read through the questions listed, I put my cereal to one side and started to type up my response. Alfie was far from impressed as I always leave him a little milk at the end, which today was much longer! I know he is a very spoilt dog!
It occurred to me that without the internet I would never have met the genealogists that have taken part in Jill’s meme, or responded to the comments either via Jill’s or my Google+. Then I got to the bit in the questions about collaboration and then the idea of Global Genealogy came to me in a flash.

The concept is in fact a simple one, it actually connects what genealogists and especially those of us that blog do best. Collaborate. So here is the deal.
There will be a blog which will be hosted and written by us all. The vision is that there will be one post each day,- which means 365 people 365 blog posts. Or it could be 28 of us with a post, each writing a post on a particular date in the month, with days 29 – 31 covered by volunteers. It depends how much the word spreads, as to how many people want to take part.
The only criteria is that the post must be genealogical, family history or at least historical, local history connected in some way.
So that is easy….right?
