Genealogy Blogging Beat – Sunday, October 24, 2010

genealogy blogging beat

Today is Sunday, October 24, 2010 and here is what’s available in terms of Daily Blogging Prompts, blog carnivals and other related events in the genealogy blogosphere:

Daily Blogging Prompts

Black Sheep Sunday – create a post with the main focus being an ancestor with a “shaded past.” Bring out your ne’er-do-wells, your cads, your black widows, your horse thieves and tell their stories. And don’t forget to check out the International Black Sheep Society of Genealogists (IBSSG). This is an ongoing series at GeneaBloggers.

Church Record Sunday – describe a specific church record or a set of records held by a church or denomination and how they can assist genealogists. This is an ongoing series developed by Gena Philibert Ortega at Gena’s Genealogy.

Sentimental Sunday – discuss a sentimental story or memory about an ancestor, or maybe even a family tradition that touches you. This is an ongoing series at GeneaBloggers and was suggested by Renate Sanders at Into the Light.

Sunday Supper – a new series dealing with food, family recipes and the American family tradition of sitting down to a special dinner on Sunday. Share your memories, your favorite dishes here. This is an ongoing series at GeneaBloggers.

Sunday’s Obituary – if you have obituaries of family members and ancestors, consider posting them along with other information about that person as part of Sunday’s Obituary. This is an ongoing series developed by Leslie Ann at Ancestors Live Here.

To ensure that your blog post is included in the “roll-up” widgets above, include the name of the blogging theme in your post title. Examples: Black Sheep Sunday – Crystal DeCanter; Tombstone Tuesday – Emma Grate.   ©2010 copyright Thomas MacEntee

  1. Hello Thomas,
    I’ve been working on Geneabloggers-related lesson plans for my Grade 6 bloggers and I would like to know
    1. whether you will be having the Advent Calendar project this year,
    2.if so would you imagine that the themes would be along the same lines?
    I ask because my students will be blogging about this regardless of whether you have the activity, but I would want to start with the right topics, because they are students of varying abilities and will need a headstart!
    P.S. Once my lesson plans are refined I will be sharing them with my fellow Edubloggers!

    Thanks for asking about the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories! Yes it will be returning and I’ve decided to make it an annual event. However, I may move it to a different blog or a “sub-blog” of GeneaBloggers. This way those who have already participated and don’t want to do so again will not have to see the posts at GeneaBloggers.

    I will post more info this week about ACCM – and the themes will be very much the same as last year.
