New Blog: Gen365

Now that I am finally coming out of the “post-holiday fog,” I am slowly working on some of my New Year’s resolutions. One is to try and do a bit of genealogy every day. With working full time, plus freelance writing, speaking engagements, teaching, and other obligations, it seems that my own family history research always seems to get put on the back burner.

Two years ago, I wrote an article for Family Tree Magazine (February 2006) “365 Ways to Discover Your Roots.” I decided that this year I would “practice what I preach,” and try to do a specific genealogy task each day and keep track of my progress through a new blog I’ve named “Gen365” (short for 365 days of Genealogy). My hope is that through this yearlong genealogical journey I will be able to stay on course and find ways to incorporate a little family history into each day. So far I have five days of tasks and five postings.
