Look at this Blog, it is Wonderful

The topic of blogging comes up now and then on this BLOG. I do read other blogs as well for my interests and seeing what else this BLOG might do.

While I was helping in the FHC/PCGS Library, one of the PCGS member came in to print pages from a blog that was about where she was from and it included families see was descendant from.

I welcome, rather challenge, you to look around this blog. Click here! Look down the left-hand column and peek at some of the families and places and topics.

You may not be from there. But is there a resource like this for where you are from? Do you know others from your "back there" who might like to make your own version of this blog? Do you find this blog friendly?

Maybe you should ask for a workshop on how you can start your family blog.

Three 19th Century Georgia Newspapers Now ONLINE

The Genealogy Blog reported, "Digital Library of Georgia Brings 3 Georgia Historic Newspapers Online." These two links are active so clicking the underlined titles will take you to the blog or the article.

Yes, they are and access is free. You might be required to add a plug-in to your browser in order to view the newspaper images. I had success using a surname and a place name.

There is antebellum coverage in each of these historic newspapers, as well as, civil war and decades after the war.

There are a number of our society's members with ties to Georgia so this and other old historic Georgia newspapers might be helpful.
