Promoting Genealogical Societies
Genealogical Societies have noticed a decline in their membership with the economy having most of us tightening our financial belts. Those in leadership positions are questioning what they can do to promote their membership and make others feel their monies are well spent in joining their Society.
Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia Review
Patricia Neely-Dorsey has written a beautiful book of Southern poetry, "Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia". Perfect for anyone who lives in the South or has any connections there; her poetry brings life to the Southern way. This book of poetry would make a wonderful gift idea!
Here are some wonderful genealogical events you might want to consider for the upcoming year. The friends and networking opportunities, along with the knowledge you will gain, will well be worth the financial commitment.
Genealogy Records Wish List
Randy Seaver over at Genea-Musings has posted his Saturday Night Genealogy Fun post for us to think of our Genealogy Wish List. This one got my attention because I can think of several databases I wish were online (especially if offered for FREE).
College for the Genealogist
Many of us are writing our Genea-lists out for the upcoming year. Educational opportunities will be somewhere on that list for most of us. I want to suggest a genealogy educational idea to add to your list.
I have a friend, Marta, who is from Poland and VERY proud of her heritage. I wondered where she would go if she decided to research her family in Poland from here in the United States. I did some searching and here are some links that might help in your Polish genealogy.
Casefile Clues Assessment
Casefile Clues is Michael John Neill's weekly how-to genealogy column. Casefile Clues is not copied and pasted text from other articles or press-releases. Rather, it is fresh material drawn from Michael's own research experiences in nearly twenty states and seven foreign countries.
As I researched topics to write about I came across the issue of insuring slaves. I was surprised that this was the first time I had came across this. As I talked to my friends who were researching their African American ancestors, they also knew very little about slavery insurance.
