Weekly column sharing genealogy-related things that I’ve learned or found.
Blog – A new blog, Geneapprentice, entered the GeneaBlogger world last week. The blogger, Sarah, is working on two certificates under the National Institute of Genealogical Studies program and will blog about her experience, as well as her own research. I’m very excited about this blog and can’t wait to hear more about NIGS, as I just signed up for classes this week.
Blog – A new blog focusing on genealogy research in the states in the Midwest. Midwest Genealogy is authored by Sharlene Miller.
Blog – A gave a presentation about genealogy blogging a few months ago at a DAR District meeting. I made a new friend, Alice, and she developed her own genealogy blog! She’s off to a great start, so be sure to check out her blog, My Genealogy Research.
Article – Allen R. Peterson, CG, wrote an article entitled, “Questionable Information and the English Origin of Thomas Dyson’s Marietta, Georgia, Family,” which appeared in the December 2009 (Vol. 97, No. 4) edition of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly. In this article, Allen discusses how a family Bible revealed clues as to the origin of the Dysons. In addition, he compares some entries found in a family Bible to actual sources. Reading this article gave me some ideas on analyzing my own family Bible (my Webster line). I plan to do a comparison of Bible entries and actual sources, and try to determine when the entries were written and by whom (certainly ggg-grandma Webster did not write her own death date in her Bible).
