a3 Genealogy “Accurate Accessible Answers”
Blog type: Research
I write and research for a living. Due to my genealogy work, I travel a bit, and sometimes write a travel blog. I also have a restaurant critique blog that I share. After 20 years of Corporate Management: New Business Development, System/Network Engineering Training, Marketing, Product/Project Management and 5 years of teaching college level English writing intensive courses, and Spanish and French, I now am able to do Genealogical Research full time. I have 10 years experience as a Professional Genealogist in the Midwest and Southern regions of the USA (to include Kansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Tennessee). I am called upon to do nationwide documentation retrieval, look-ups, free-colored research, military and civil war record retrievals, and tracing slaves. I am also a translator of Spanish and French into English records.

Blog type: Technology, UK genealogy
Now retired, I have had a varied career in the sciences, politics and computing. Today my main interests are genealogy and computing.
Blog type: Individual family history, Jewish genealogy
I’m a mother of two and grandmother of one. I’ve been a teacher and now am an instructor of ESL. My father was Maurice “Morris, Moshe” Goldfoot of Portland, Oregon. His father was Nathan Goldfoot,born in “Russia”, which could have meant Poland or Lithuania, and his father was Chaim Itzak Goldfoot of Russia/Lithuania. Census said Russia, but family says Lithuania. He married Hattie Jermulowske. My mother’s father was Frank Hugh Robinson born in Wenona, Illinois in 1870. His parents were Abiathar Smith Robinson and Julia Ann Tuller.
I have found many of Julia Ann’s family but not one of Abiathar’s. That’s what I’m looking for. He said his people came from Vermont, and that they came over not on the Mayflower, but the ship after it. On Julia Ann’s side I have traced the family back to Warren who signed the Mayflower Compact. I think he meant the Robinsons came over on the next ship. Besides many Tuller/Tullars, there are many Durkees on Julia’s side.
I enjoy searching the family’s genealogy very much. I lived in Israel from 1980-1985 and taught EFL. Then I wrote a book upon return called “Letters from Israel” found at www.amazon.com.
Blog type: Individual family history

Welcome to ‘Scotland’s Genealogy’ a new blog by Chris Halliday,amateur genealogist and enthusiast of Scotland’s history.
New to blogging ,this will be a steep learning curve, but there is no time like the present so be patient.
Why ‘Scotland’s Genealogy’ ? Well all the obvious domain names have gone; Scottish, Scots, as the popularity of Scottish genealogy increases. Will there soon be too many professional genealogists competing for business?
I look forward to hearing your comments and lets see where this will go.

The Thanksgiving Village Ward Family History
Blog type: Individual family history
My name is Katie Gauger from Lehi, Utah and I have been blogging for about 4 years now. I am self taught in graphic design, and I love designing wonderful digital creations such as scrapbook pages, crafts, printables and other fun things I think of. I decided that since I put so much time into creating things to share with my friends, my church and family, I might as well share them with the rest of the world, so I created a blog called “Visiting Teaching Tips, handouts and ideas” http://visitingteachingtips.blogspot.com as well as a side blog http://visitingteachingsurprise.blogspot.com/ that is sort of the foot locker of surprises for those who want to enjoy or print or use my creations for free!
Because of my computer & blogging background, I was asked to be on a committee to promote Family History research and journaling in my church. My role is to share the way that technology can help us to accomplish wonderful things in all aspects of Genealogy. My main focus is to encourage other to write their own personal histories as well as family histories. My mode for doing that is through blogging. (I personally created a blog of my extended Smith family to keep track and Scrapbook the photos and memories from our first reunion to the current date. I also began including photos and memories of our parents and their siblings and families, and it has turned into a Smith Family History blog. http://adelbertanddellasmithfamily.blogspot.com/ My husband liked so much what I was doing that he asked me to help him create one for his family as well. http://paulmarcelenegaugerfamily.blogspot.com/ This has turned into a great hobby for him and he now involves his sisters in contributing and sharing memories, histories and photographs.)
I felt that since I was promoting blogging that I would help my church by creating a blog that could give people a resource for learning what blogging is and how to set up a blog, as well as how to blog your family history, or keep a personal journal. That blog is called “Thanksgiving Village Ward Family History Blog”. http://thanksgivingvillageward.blogspot.com/ I listed as many resources as had time for and I know that I will continue to add other helpful resources as I find them. This blogs resources also include links to other family History blogs, Genealogy research sites, downloadable and printable genealogy forms, Family history podcasts, radio and e-books, links for helps in writing your own family history, getting kids involved in genealogy and kid friendly genealogy links, clipart, links to publishing your blog into a book, info on keeping a personal journal both written and online, building a family tree, instructional Family History related videos, and other helpful genealogy related materials. I hope that no only my ward will enjoy this site, but others who are also interested in Family history and Genealogy research.
