Follow Friday – December 14, 2012

The end of the year is upon us! Are you thinking about saving your family history as you meet with family this holiday season? Do you have children you would like to engage in family history or that are already interested?

Check out Stephanie Pitcher Fishman’s new free eBook Learning Through Family History available for a limited time so grab yours today! This eBook is filled with ways to engage children. If you enjoy the book, sign up for her newsletter on Corn and Cotton and The In-Depth Genealogist because I know she has some other things in the works for 2013.

Read through her book and think of ways you can incorporate more family stories and photographs into Sort Your Story this holiday season. And encourage your kids and grandkids to get started today!

Happy Holidays!!

Follow Friday – September 21, 2012

This week for Follow Friday I thought I’d do something a bit different. Rather than post blogs I think you should check out, I thought FaceBook pages and groups would be a nice change of pace. Here are some FaceBook pages and groups that may help you with yourresearch.


Genealogy Bloggers – This is a closed group but you can ask to be admitted. In this group, bloggers talk about their research issues, brick walls, websites they’ve found useful and their own blog posts.

International Society of Family History Writers and Editors – ISFHWE is a group that supports and promotes genealogical writers and editors. For full benefits, check out their membership information on their website.


The In-Depth Genealogist – The FaceBook presence of The In-Depth Genealogist which offers many resources for the family historian.

Check out the various FamilySearch sponsored pages on FaceBook that deal with specific states. Here are a couple. Just search for the specific state you need assistance with under Pages to locate others.

Do you have any to add? Please list them in the comments below.
