52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy

52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2012) that invite genealogists and family historians to highlight those genealogy resources for which they are thankful. This is also a way to mention a favorite site or tool to others and if you don’t already utilize that resource, you’ll be able to follow the blog posts that help you understand why the resource is important!

You do not have to be a blogger to participate. If you do not have a genealogy blog, write down your thoughts on your computer, or simply record them on paper and keep them with your files.

  • Week 46: Large Genealogy Vendor. Which big genealogy vendor is your favorite one to see at conferences? What does this vendor offer the genealogy community?
    Why do you like visiting this vendor in the exhibit hall?

This week’s prompt runs from Sunday, November 11, 2012 through Saturday, November 17, 2012.
