Wordless Wednesday July 28, 2010

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

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

To participate in Wordless Wednesday simply create a post with the main focus being a photograph or image. Some people also include attribute information as to the source of the image (date, location, owner, etc.). Some have begun doing a “Not So Wordless Wednesday” with the main focus still being an image but there is a backstory to the image.

Here are the latest Wordless Wednesday posts from our member genealogy bloggers:
