Global Genealogy

Regular readers of the Anglers Rest blog may remember that I mentioned at the end of the summer Global Genealogy.

Well, in case you don’t or your new here (welcome)! I am going to tell you a bit about the idea and what the catalyst was.

It all started with a genememe hosted by +Jill Ball. As I answered a set of questions, which you can read HERE,  I vaguely floated the idea that genealogists are friendly, supportive and absolutely get the value of social media. I also said that genealogists are truly breaking down the barriers of time zones and brick wall by embracing not just the social media of today, but by collaboration. The coming together of like minded people across the globe using social media as a platform to educate, embrace, collaborate and share friendships and whatever else takes your fancy.

I then developed the concept which is as follows:

  • One Blog
  • A Blog post written each day by a different blogger
  • The only criteria is that the content of the blog post must be about one (or even all) of the following
    • Genealogy
    • Historical
    • Local History
  • You can use this platform to mention your Society or a genealogical event or alike.

    Hi, Julie – I have seen the new blog and look forward to posting my contributions. One query – you say “A Blog post written each day by a different blogger”. Does this mean we will each be allocated a day in the month to post, or can we choose? With apologies if I have missed something somewhere on this, ,but I want to get it right. A reply would be much appreciated. My e-mail is susanpdonaldson@btinternet.com. Thank you. .
