Today is Thursday, November 11, 2010 and here is what’s available in terms of Daily Blogging Prompts, blog carnivals and other related events in the genealogy blogosphere:
Items of Note
- Today is Veteran’s Day here in the United States and Remembrance Day in most of the UK / Commonwealth countries. Post about your family history and veterans and we’ll carry the posts from members of GeneaBloggers here in a special roll-up post later this morning.
- The genealogy blog Hills Hollows Valleys Plains has had a name and URL change. The new blog is Diary of a Mad Genealogist at http://diaryofamadgenealogist.blogspot.com.
- Note: I am traveling to Atlanta for the Atlanta Family History Expo this weekend so the tagging of posts for the roll-ups might be delayed.
Daily Blogging Prompts
Thrifty Thursday – do you have some neat ways of saving money when it comes to genealogy? Have you located a bargain on some research resource or office supply? Post about it during Thrifty Thursday! This series has been suggested by Judy Webster of Queensland Genealogy.
Thriller Thursday – Are there murders, bizarre accidents or other thrilling stories among your family history? Tell us about them through words and pictures during Thriller Thursday. This is an ongoing series by Anne Kruszka at Gene Notes.
Those Places Thursday – do you often think back to places where you lived and worked at one time? What about those places where your ancestors spent time? Post about “those places” with photos and stories on Those Places Thursday. This has been an ongoing series by Cheryl Palmer of Heritage Happens.
Treasure Chest Thursday – create a post with the main focus being a family treasure, an heirloom or even an every-day item important to your family. A special thanks to Leslie Ann Ballou of Lost Family Treasures for suggesting Treasure Chest Thursday as a daily blogging theme!
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 – Anita Bath; Tombstone Tuesday – Aleta Buffet.
