52 Weeks To Better Genealogy

Amy Coffin of the fabulous We Tree blog, has done it again. Last year, Amy developed a series of 52 Weekly Genealogy Blogging Prompts which kept folks very busy and forced them to look at many different aspects of their genealogy.

Now Amy brings us 52 Weeks To Better Genealogy: a series of weekly prompts that are a bit more challenging and are geared towards those new to the field of genealogy and family history as well as those who want to brush up on some skills which might be a bit rusty.

  • Week 49: Check out the National Archives Genealogy page. There also is a Start Your Genealogy Research page that may be of interest. Don’t try to do any research, just click links and explore the contents. The goal of this week’s challenge is to introduce you to these collections, or for more experienced genealogists, remind you of what they contain. If you are doing this challenge from outside the United States, explore the national archives of your country for collections pertinent to genealogy. If you write a genealogy blog, you may share and interesting items you found with your readers.

We’ll list a new challenge each Saturday which should be completed by the following Friday.

And remember – 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.
