This Week’s New Genealogy Blogs

[Note: this is a regular feature of Geneabloggers which highlights new genealogy and family history-related blogs as well as those recently discovered by members of Geneabloggers. Use the Suggest A Geneablog! link in the sidebar to pass along information on new blogs.]

This week we offer 12  new genealogy and family-history related blogs. We now list over 337 in our blog list!

And a quick note, since Google Reader’s automatic blog list has malfunctioned, I’ve decided to enter the hyperlinks manually.  Tedious but it is good insurance as a backup.

Remember to try and help out these new blogs by:

– using the Follow feature if the blog is hosted on Blogger
– adding them to your blog reader
– adding a comment on their blog saying “hi” and “welcome.”
– adding them to your Networked Blogs on Facebook

Acadian Ancestral Home

“My LeBlanc grandparents migrated to Massachusetts from New Brunswick. My Levesque grandparents migrated from Quebec with their parents as teenagers. Both my father and my mother were born in Massachusetts were married and had their six children there – three girls and three boys. I am the sixth child born to them.”

Ancestral Private Eye

“Anyway, I guess that’s what started the ‘nosey’ nature I have. And who knows, if I had done things differently, I might have just become a private eye for real, instead of a genealogist. Although I don’t know which might have become more frustrating. Yep, Mom always told me I had ‘nose trouble’. I guess with my research, it’s paid off. Not all the time, but some time. And I guess some is better than none. I hope to put here, in this ‘blog creature’ I’ve created, items I’ve ‘nosed out’ of different places, my take on some of them, and of course, the always present ‘brick wall’ that we all run into. Maybe some will make you laugh, some will make you cry, and maybe even, some will make you say ‘Why didn’t I think of that!’, or the more plausible ‘Boy, she must be blonde!’

Genealogical Treasures

“For over 20 years my mother did genealogical research on our family lines. When she entered a nursing home I inherited all of her genealogy records. In going through those records I found some articles on people that I can’t find a family connection to. Also, as I have been going down the genealogical road I have amassed a number of obituaries, documents, newspaper articles, etc. of people who are also not related to me. I thought I would share them here and maybe somebody would read them and go “Hey, those are my relatives!” or “Hey, I know somebody who might be interested in that information.” The items will be sourced where possible. Hopefully YOU will find a Genealogical Treasure here!”

My Heritage

“I’m a journalist focusing on genealogy, speak at international conferences and genealogy societies, teach online genealogy classes and I’ve been president of a large genealogy society. My genealogical passions include encouraging young people to become interested in genealogy, finding new resources and assisting others to find the information they need. For six years, I wrote “It’s All Relative,” for the Jerusalem Post’s weekly Metro,. Tracing the Tribe, is another blog of mine. My stories have appeared in newspapers, magazines and genealogical journals. I’m a member of the American Jewish Press Association and the Association of Professional Genealogists. My love for family history grew out of a deep interest in history, anthropology, sociology, world cultures and peoples. At a junior high school summer music camp, held on a large New England university campus, I discovered the campus bookstore. While my fellow campers were asking their parents for money for ice cream and the movies, mine went for books in my favorite subjects. The step to genealogy resulted from our daughter’s homework assignment. She brought home a one-page form asking for information about her parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. That weekend, we attended a family life cycle event and asked questions of my husband’s relatives, returning home with hundreds of small cocktail napkins scribbled with information. She turned to me and said, “Now we have to do your side.” The rest, as they say, is history.


“The Genealogy Society of Norway – DIS (Norwegian name: “DIS-Norge”) was founded January 12, 1990. There are about 8000 members (2006) and the membership increases daily. The main goal of the association is to create a common forum for persons interested in using computers as a tool in genealogical research in Norway. DIS-Norge wants to spread knowledge about and at the same time stimulate genealogical research. We have good relations with similar associations in the Nordic countries and are continually exchanging experiences. We facilitate contact between genealogists in Norway, both electronically and face to face. In the case of local interest, we try actively to begin new local organisations.”

Staats Place

“I thought about what sort of blog I might like to create – a blog about me? a career blog?  a genealogy blog? a job search blog? a random blog? The only answer that made sense in the end was: yes, I should create a random blog about me, careers, genealogy, my job search, and other rambling items of interest to me, Chris Staats. One of the goals of blogging is to disseminate information. In my case, the only information I feel qualified to disseminate is about me and my own rambling imagination. What the hell, I pay for the webspace, right? “

Taking Genealogy to the Common Person

“A clear majority of people on this earth want to know more about their ancestors. In spite of their innate interest, they are often overwhelmed at the complexity of the process and underwhelmed by the experience. This blog is a forum for promoting innovation that will help to take family history to the common person.”

“A progress history of transcribing a big Canadian city census from 1861, including my method and organization, and the social and geographical details of the area at that time.”
