Amy Coffin of the We Tree blog has another successful series on her hands. After last year’s popular Jump Start Your Genealogy Blog: 52 Ideas. 52 Weeks, she’s come up with a new series of weekly prompts called 52 Weeks To Better Genealogy.
The goal: to get all genealogists and family historians – both new to the field as well as the “lifers” – to stretch their brains and examine certain aspects of what some of us pursue as a past time, some as a profession and all as a passion.

GeneaBloggers will announce the challenge for the week in the weekly Upcoming Genealogy Blogging Events post every Friday. At the same time, an event will be created over at the GeneaBloggers Group on Facebook (the first week’s challenge is here). The challenge period will be Saturday through to the following Friday.
And in addition, during the week GeneaBloggers will create a “progress post” with a roll-up widget listing those who are participating.

Those who want to participate simply need to follow the cues and post about the exercise at their genealogy blog. As Amy says, these should be fun exercises! Don’t feel that you have to participate each week, nor should you beat yourself up if you miss one or more challenges. We all have so much that we want to accomplish – let alone what we want to accomplish with our genealogy blogs. This series should be one which, by the end of 2010, helps you to be a better genealogist.
