Here is a link to some online articles and posts related to genealogy I found interesting and helpful this month.
- The NextGen Genealogy Network’s Education Hangout on Self-Editing Your Work
- The NextGen Genealogy Network’s Blog Post about preparing for your first genealogy conference. I am not attending RootsTech this year (darn!), but it will be very helpful to start planning for next year!
- Public Radio International (PRI) online article about how one student used documents and DNA to find her slave ancestors.
- Who is Nicka Smith? posted a great blog about tracing slaveholders- it isn’t as easy as they make it look on TV.
- Amy Johnson Crow’s blog post on knowing your archives websites. A good reminder!
- Desperately Seeking Surnames’ blog post from 2013 that I stumbled upon in a tweet! “I’m a Genealogist and I Know It,” made me laugh with appreciation!
- National Public Radio (NPR) had this article “DNA, Genealogy and the Search for Who We Are.” This one I had mixed feelings on. Did you read it? What are your thoughts?
