There are 5 newly-discovered genealogy and family-history related blogs that we’ve located this week. Remember to try and help out these new blogs by:
- using any follow feature listed on the blog
- adding them to your blog reader
- adding a comment on their blog saying “hi” and “welcome”
Here are this week’s new listings:
Blog type: Dutch
Dutch Genealogy has been around since 1993 to help people from around the world find their ancestors from the Netherlands. The website is maintained by Yvette Hoitink, a professional genealogist in the Netherlands. The blog features case studies, tips about Dutch names, information about the different types of records that are available, background information about emigration from the Netherlands and many other topics that are of interest to descendants of Dutch emigrants.
I Heart John Trout
Blog type: Maryland, Military, US Civil War
The intent of this blog is to take the reader through my journey of researching John Andrew Trout while telling his story and his life in Frederick County, Maryland. He was a Union veteran of the Civil War and was captured at the Battle of Monocacy, just barely 5 miles from his home. In his later years at the age of 71, he was an object of media fascination through his efforts to find a second wife by using the local papers. He seemed to start quite a trend! He suffered a tragic end.
Julie’s Genealogy & History Hub
Blog type: Education, Family, Photos, Professional, Research, Writing
My genealogy blogging journey began in July 2008, with one blog entitled GenBlog. Since that time, I have started other genealogy-related blogs including Chicagoland Cemeteries; Cemeteries of Bloomington-Normal, Illinois; Who Will Tell Their Story?; and Writing Your Way to the Past. And although the two cemetery blogs are no longer being updated, managing multiple blogs can be a little overwhelming.
So, I decided to combine my three remaining blogs into one hub and move to WordPress. Doing so allows my readers the option to follow one, two, or all three of the original blogs, while allowing me to manage just one space. Think of Julie’s Genealogy & History Hub as three portals, each with a different target, where you get to choose what you want to follow. Descriptions for each can be found on the home page of the new blog. You can subscribe to them individually or subscribe to the whole hub here.
Memories In Print
Blog type: Family
Once a week, I add a new family story about my family or my husband’s family. These stories include everything from my grandmother’s infamous Special K Loaf to my husband’s great-great-great grandfather’s service in the Civil War. The Memories in Print blog is connected to the website for my business, through which I help people turn their genealogical data into readable stories and beautiful books.
Voices from the Past
Blog type: Family
A cousin-hunting, family history blog centered on my great-grandmother, Mary Ann Magee. This is her story.
