As we end 2009, I've thought a lot about the coming year and what I would like to accomplish. And that also brings me to think about what I want to bring to my blog and making it worthwhile to those who read it. It's hard when you blog because you don't know what people think or whether anyone even reads your blog. There are so many blogs out there that it's hard to know where your blog rates in the scheme of things.
As I think about my blogging "style" and what I want to convey to my readers, I've decided on some ideas I will implement in 2010. If you are a regular reader to my blog you may know that I tend to try to post article, websites, and tips that will help you in researching your ancestor. My hope is that these ideas will help you and provide new ideas for your research and new discoveries.
So for 2010 I will continue with Church Record Sunday. This is a series that I developed where I write about church records, websites, and other sources having to do with your ancestor's religious records. I try to highlight all kinds of religions and sources.
I will also start a weekly series 52 Weeks of Genealogy Sources (ok, I'm not very good at coming up with snazzy titles). I will explore 1 resource a week and explain it and where you can find it. These will be sources that can be found on the internet, at a library or an archive. My hope is to bring up some sources that you may not have known about.
Peppered into those postings will be social history websites, books I love and other ideas for your genealogy.
I hope you will take this week leading into the New Year and think about your genealogy and how you want it to be different next year. This is the time to think about lines to research, new aspects of genealogy and history that you want to learn about, conference and events to go too. Now is the time to think of what you want to discover this year and start making plans.
I know I will be....
