Surname Saturday October 24, 2009

Today is Surname Saturday.  There are two ways in which you can join in the fun:


Participants must have a current and active Twitter account in order to participate. During the day on Saturday, participants “tweet” about the surnames they are researching. All posts should include the #surnames hashtag.

Here is the current listing of Surname Saturday messages on Twitter.


If you have your own genealogy or family history related blog, you can participate in Surname Saturday. What is it?

Surname Saturday is a daily blogging theme used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites.

To participate in Surname Saturday, simply create a post in which you discuss a surname and mention its origins, its geographical location(s) and how it fits into your genealogy research. You can read more about Surname Saturday here at gene@pedia.
