Many of you already know, but I went ahead and started a new blog for genealogy and family history research. I call it Footprints In Time, because I feel like I’m trailing my ancestors through time. I hope it will become a resource for people who, like me, are just starting out in this fascinating journey of genealogical research.
I have already made a number of posts, trying to get the blog fairly active. I’m adding link pages for genealogy blogs, research tools and resources. The more I get involved with it, the more fascinated I become. I’m learning new things every day, and sharing what I learn. I’ll also be doing a genealogy blog round-up, similar to what I used to do on Ruminations of a Small Town Mountain Boy. It will be a regular series, every Wednesday, just like the Monday’s Writers of The Web.
I’ve also created a Facebook page for Footprints In Time, and have started getting a few fans. I have to admit though most of them are family right now. Be sure to check it out and click on the like button to become a fan, I can use all the fans I can get.
I may even write a book for beginning or weekend genealogists. Actually I’ve already started it. It’s in PDF format so it can be downloaded easily. I have the preface, introduction, and first chapter done already. After I get a few the genealogy blog round-ups compiled, I’ll do another book, as a collection of resource, search engine, and blog links, kind of a companion set.
