Here is a list of events, memes and goings-on in the world of geneablogging and what’s happening in the coming week:

Happy Blogoversary

On Tuesday 2 June 2009, both 100 Years In America and Small-leaved Shamrock celebrate their 2nd anniversary.  Congratulations Lisa!

And another one of Lisa’s blogs, A Light That Shines Again, also celebrates its 2nd anniversary on Wednesday, 3 June 2009.  Stop by all of Lisa’s blogs and wish her well!

Guess what? Did you know that the Carnival of Genealogy – now in its 73rd Edition – is three years old on Thursday 4 June 2006?  Stop by and say thank you to Jasia for all the fine work she does with COG!

And finally, on Saturday 6 June 2009, Granite In My Blood by Midge Frazel celebrates its 3rd anniversary.  Even with new grandson Anthony, Midge always has time for some great posts about her ancestors – stop and pay a visit.

  1. Thanks for the Data Back-up reminder! The other day I had washed and dried my 4 GB jump drive. Luckily it still works…..I’ve backed-up all my data today. Thanks again for the reminder.

  2. Thanks so very much, Thomas, for helping to celebrate my 2nd anniversary in the world of blogging.

    I’ve truly enjoyed the online camaraderie that I’ve found with you and so many other genealogy bloggers. Thanks for working so hard to keep us all in the loop. You are the keeper of “main street” in our genealogy blog world – and we all love to take regular “walks” here to keep up with the community. Many thanks!
