I am happy to say that GeneaBloggers has been able to partner with GenealogyBank on this effort to gain valuable insight into who reads and creates genealogy blogs as well as how they are used in genealogy research. The survey questions are easy to answer and the data will help GeneaBloggers identify demographics, trends and habits among genealogy blog readers and authors. This information will be used to add new features at GeneaBloggers, to help us identify trends in the genealogy blogging community and to work with genealogy vendors to help improve their offerings.
GenealogyBank has donated the prize: a one year subscription to its exclusive newspaper archive for family history research which provides information on millions of American families from 1690–today. Over 3,800 newspapers provide first-hand accounts about your ancestors that simply can’t be found in other sources. You’ll be fascinated by the stories, names, dates, places and events that have played a role in your family’s history.
Contest rules can be accessed here and you can find the survey here. Remember to include your e-mail address at the end of the survey to enter the contest!
