I’ve been asked by Chris Whitten of WikiTree to solicit feedback from the genealogy blogging community on a participation widget he is developing for WikiTree.
The concept is this: as a WikiTree participant you can let others know your recent edits on your WikiTree page. The widget will not only help communicate some of the surnames you are researching but also attract others to build their own WikiTree pages.
To help out with the selection, first visit the page of draft widgets here. Each widget is labeled with a letter (a, b, c, etc.). Then leave your feedback in the comments on this post. I won’t post my comments right away since I don’t want to skew the discussion but I do have my favorites already!
You can also leave feedback at the WikiTree page at Facebook – just post a comment on their wall or in the Discussion section.

I want to thank Chris for reaching out to the genealogy blogger community. More and more genealogy vendors and service providers are realizing how genealogy bloggers can help to shape the genealogy industry through their input and opinions. WikiTree has consistently made an effort to reach out to the genealogy community and should be commended for doing so.
