The following recent blog posts are those that I consider important or notable. Unlike other similar blog lists, I cannot guarantee that they will all be from the past week. (Some weeks I simply do not have time to read any blogs.) But I will try to write this on a fairly regular basis.
Note: Between the APG Professional Management Conferences and the 2012 RootsTech Conference this week, most of the blogs that I read on a regular basis have either been inactive or covered the conferences. So this is a short list this week.
James Tanner, “What is left to digitize?,” Genealogy’s Star blog, posted 21 January 2012 (http://genealogysstar.blogspot.com : accessed 28 Jan 2012). Mr. Tanner emphasizes that–even though hundreds of millions of records have been digitized–the surface has barely even been scratched. As genealogists, we still need to consult original records.
Linda Woodward Geiger, “Evidence: A Matter of Context for Genealogists & Historians,” Anamnesis: Musings by Linda blog, posted 4 February 2012 (http://www.musingsbylinda.com/anamnesis : accessed 4 February 2012). A light-hearted post that does make a subtle point about evidence.
