A WorldCat.org Shout Out for GeneaBloggers

WorldCat.org

If you remember the ongoing series 52 Weeks To Better Genealogy created by Amy Coffin of WeTree and published each week here at GeneaBloggers, you may not know that Week 5 was – well, it was a “big deal.”

The topic asked participants to check out the WorldCat.org site and the response was overwhelming.  Not only did genealogists and family historians become exposed to a great and often under-utilized resource, but the folks at WorldCat also saw an uptick in traffic.

Amy and GeneaBloggers have been highlighted in a recent news article at the OCLC site – the article is entitled Next-generation genealogy and one woman’s quest to share the wealth of WorldCat.org.

This has been a win-win situation for everyone involved and we look forward to working with WorldCat.org and OCLC in the future.  And don’t forget to check out the WorldCat.org page for genealogy!
