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!
