Family history blogs in Practical Family History magazine

15 Jun

The June 2010 edition of Practical Family History magazine includes a two page article on family history blogs by Sheena Tait, who also has a blog.

The article is entitled “Web resources for… Blogs for genealogy” and includes sections on commercial blogs, genealogical news and personal blogs, with examples in each categories. The article opens with a description of what a blog is and ways to read them, and closes with some suggestions on how to find blogs and some suggestions for feed readers.

I am proud to say that my blog gets a mention (and a screenshot) in the section on personal blogs, so I would like to thank Sheena and Practical Family History for giving me a mention.

The article does mention that “genealogy blogs are dominated by American writers and topics but there are now a growing number focused on the UK and Ireland”, so it is good that the article mainly focuses on UK and Irish blogs.

The other personal blogs mentioned were:

    Hi John

    You’re welcome! I was determined to find UK focused blogs for the feature rather than the US-based ones that get most of the coverage online; and I enjoy reading your blog (I subscribe through your feed).

    All the best

    Thanks again Sheena,

    It’s not easy finding UK focused blogs, there aren’t many of us about, I wish there were more.
