GeneaBloggers Group on Facebook
IMPORTANT! Our Genea-Bloggers Group page is being archived by Facebook. All members will be deleted (by Facebook). No exact date has been given but I want to inform all members now rather than later. Please go to the Facebook page for GeneaBloggers (http://www.facebook.com/Geneabloggers) and click LIKE. Starting later this week I will only be posting events and items to that page in the future.
52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy and History
52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2011) that invite genealogists and others to record memories and insights about their own lives for future descendants. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. If you do not have a genealogy blog, write down your memories on your computer, or simply record them on paper and keep them with your files.
Week 19. Bedroom. Describe your childhood bedroom. What furniture did it contain? Were there curtains, wallpaper or paint? Was it messy or clean? Did you share a room with your siblings?
We’ll list a new challenge each Saturday which should be completed by the following Friday.
And don’t forget to check out other upcoming events at the Geneabloggers Calendar. This is the same Google calendar that has been in existence for quite some time. And if you subscribe to the calendar you’ll receive email reminders of events.
