Here are this week’s new listings:
Blog type: Genealogy society blogs
Today marks the beginning of a new chapter in the life of the FGS Voice, the monthly newsletter of the Federation of Genealogical Societies. The newsletter, which is sent by e-mail to those who subscribe to it, is now joined by this blog, which will enable FGS to get news out to the genealogical community immediately without the need to wait for the monthly deadline.
Don’t worry! The monthly newsletter will continue to be sent out as it has always been, and it will contain newsworthy items from this blog, as well as additional items such as the calendar of FGS member society events. When you submit content to FGS Voice, it will usually appear first on the blog, and then in the newsletter.
As with most blogs, you can “subscribe” to the FGS Voice news blog so that you’ll easily know when it has updated content, without the need to visit the blog itself to see. To do this, click on the “Subscribe to this blog” icon on the right (you can subscribe to the entries or separately subscribe to the comments). This will give you the option to identify what tool you are using to keep track of your blogs. (I like to use the free Google Reader tool myself.)
Just like with the monthly newsletter, feedback about the blog will be appreciated! I hope you enjoy this new way of keeping up with what’s new with the Federation of Genealogical Societies, with its member societies, and with important events that affect all of us in the genealogical community.
Blog type: Individual family history, Italian genealogy
Gentedimareitaliangenalogy.info is a one stop online research collection guide which will hopefully help you get started with researching your Italian Family History. Many of the resources listed here will also
aid you in other areas of your research.
We provide a list of resources, both on and offline, which deal with a variety of topics – all of course, genealogy related and whenever possible we will attempt to give our thoughts on how effective we find the resource to be . . .
Blog type: Individual family history
William Innes was born on the 25 February 1822 at Craighead Croft located in Tomnavoulin by Tomintoul and what is now known as Glenlivet, Banff, Scotland. It was known then to be located in Inveravon, Banff, Scotland.
Blog type: Appalachian genealogy, Individual family history, Tennessee genealogy, Virginia genealogy
Welcome. I am researching families who settled along the Nolichucky River in East Tennessee, along the Rappahannock in Virginia, and eventually hope to research my European roots along the Rika River in Ukraine. Family names include McAdams, Hampton, Palmer and Meredith. This blog also examines 18th & 19th century Catholics in the Northern Neck of Virginia and Presbyterians and Baptists in East Tennessee.
