Don’t forget that today is Sentimental Sunday. If you have your own genealogy or family history related blog, you can participate in Sentimental Sunday. What is it?

Sentimental Sunday is a daily blogging theme used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites.

To participate in Sentimental Sunday, simply create a post in which you discuss a sentimental story or memory about an ancestor, or maybe even a family tradition that touches you.

Here are the latest Sentimental Sunday posts from our member genealogy bloggers:

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy – Challenge 13 – Cyndi’s List

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy – Challenge 13

Week 13: Make an appointment with Cyndi’s List. All beginning genealogy publications include a link to Cyndi’s List because it is the ultimate guide for family history links. If you’ve never used Cyndi’s List, take the time to look around. If you’re familiar with the site, look again. Take the time to browse with detail. Don’t try to research your own family’s history, just move through the site and get a feel of all it has to offer. If you have a genealogy blog, share with your readers a new website you discovered through Cyndi’s List.

This challenge runs from Saturday, March 27, 2010 through Friday, April 2, 2010.

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts that are a bit more challenging and are geared towards those new to the field of genealogy and family history as well as those who want to brush up on some skills which might be a bit rusty. Please include an attribution link if you participate.

Ratings For Who Do You Think You Are? Episode 4

Ratings for Who Do You Think You Are?

The overnight ratings for Episode 4 of Who Do You Think You Are? with Matthew Broderick are up over at MediaWeek:

Over at NBC, recently introduced Who Do You Think You Are?, featuring Matthew Broderick last night, finished second in total viewers (6.21 million) and third among adults 18-49 (1.5/ 2) at 8 p.m.

It appears that the ratings are down from last week – the Lisa Kudrow episode brought in 7.1 million viewers and 1.7/ 7 among adults 18-49. My take is that the NCAA basketball playoffs took away viewers – mostly male – who would have watched the Broderick episode with its focus on military ancestors.
