Treasure Chest Thursday April 29, 2010

Today is Treasure Chest Thursday. If you have your own genealogy or family history related blog, you can participate in Treasure Chest Thursday. What is it?

Treasure Chest Thursday is a daily blogging theme used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites.

To participate in Treasure Chest Thursday simply create a post with the main focus being a family treasure, an heirloom or even an every-day item important to your family.

A special thanks to Leslie Ann Ballou of Lost Family Treasures for suggesting Treasure Chest Thursday as a daily blogging theme!

Here are the latest Treasure Chest Thursday posts from our member genealogy bloggers:

For me, I couldn’t live without access to the archive of the Poughkeepsie Journal News (since my ancestors have been in Dutchess County, New York since around 1700) or without access to death certificates for Wisconsin and Texas!
