Notable Genealogy Blog Posts, 1 April 2012

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.

Tonia Kendrick, “Pedigree Analysis: Start With What You Know,” Tonia’s Roots blog, posted 23 March 2012 ( : accessed 29 March 2012). Tonia demonstrates a method that we should all be using, in one form or another, to help break down those brickwalls. I especially like the way she lays it out.

Nick Barratt, “What we want from our genealogy world,” The Family History Show blog, posted 26 March 2012 ( : accessed 29 March 2012). I include this post for two main reasons: (1) Nick notes that there are possible issues with changing records access laws even in other countries (the show is based in the UK). (2) It raises an interesting question, namely, “what one thing would you change about the genealogy sector today?” Please feel free to leave your responses in the comments to this post.

Kassie Nelson, “Five Lessons From a Transitional Genealogist,” Cedar Tree Genealogy blog, posted 27 March 2012 ( : accessed 29 March 2012). After I discovered this blog (see above), Kassie posted this. I highly recommend that anyone interested in transitioning into a career of genealogy subscribe to her blog. This post discusses some of the lessons that Kassie has learned with her first four clients.

  1. Michael,

    Just wanted to let you know that the posting “How Much Do Professional Genealogists Charge? by Kassie Nelson has been removed from her blog. I really wanted to read it and was surprised to find it gone. 😦

    But I did find the other postings very interesting.

  2. I have re-posted this blog. Thanks for the mention Michael! It’s quite an honor for someone with your experience to mention a newbie like me!
