Read more genealogy blogs!

You’ll get the latest news, read research stories and tips , hear about great libraries and websites, and be inspired!  

Of course, you are reading our articles every week, but there are many others on the web writing about genealogy and family history – almost 3,000 as of today.

Here on the lower right of our main BCGS page, we feature 5 genealogy bloggers every day. You can click right through to any article mentioned that interests you from:

Genealogy Insider
FamilySearch.org Blog
Your Genetic Genealogist
Geneabloggers
Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter

There are many more bloggers and the Geneablogger’s website has searchable lists of these with descriptions. And every day there is news there of the day’s ‘Blogging Beat’ topics or special events. Here is today’s Genealogy Blogging Beat list, for instance.

Special events include activities like ’52 Ancestors’ which is a year long genealogy and family history blogging challenge sponsored by ‘No Story Too Small’. Several BCGS members are participating in that. Here is the latest list of ’52 Ancestors’ articles.

Happy genealogy blog reading!
