Family History Research

Follow Friday – Great Blogs

on October 8, 2010

I was Googling information for my ProGen Study Group October assignment, which is to create an educational plan for myself and came across a blog I really need to follow. It is called Midwest Genealogy. If you have done any research, or need to do research, in the Midwest, check out this blog. It is full of wonderful information.

This week Dr. Bill posted another great story about his current family history called Sentimental Sunday  – Family Time in Estes Park, Colorado. He reminds us all to keep recording our current history as well as our past. This is something I try to do so my boys have their stories told as they grow.

Did you know FamilySearch has pages and pages of reference guides? These guides can be sorted by State (Place), Title, Subject, or Document Type and contain information useful if you are visiting the Family History Library or various repositories. There are even State documents that outline historical events that caused some records to be created. Through those documents you might even brush up on your history. It is an amazing resource!
