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.
Kathryn Lake Hogan, “Why Should You Hire a Professional Genealogist?,” Looking4Ancestors blog, posted 22 February 2012 (http://www.looking4ancestors.com/ : accessed 25 February 2012). Kathryn explores issues surrounding the hiring of a professional genealogist, including why hiring a professional might be necessary and how much one might expect to pay (in Canadian dollars).
James Tanner, “Lessons in Genealogy from 1915 Part One,” and “Lessons in Genealogy from 1915 Part Two,” Genealogy’s Star blog, posted 20 February 2012 (http://genealogysstar.blogspot.com/ : accessed 24 February 2012). Mr. Tanner explores a book on genealogy methodology published by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints back in 1915. I am a big fan of genealogical history and historiography, and have downloaded the book from Internet Archive for my own exploration.
Judy G. Russell, CG, “Certified, yes; certifiable… well…,” The Legal Genealogist blog, posted 25 February 2012 (http://www.legalgenealogist.com/blog : accessed 25 February 2012). A very humorous look at Judy’s voyage to earning her shiny new credential from the Board for the Certification of Genealogists. Be sure to go congratulate her!
