Today’s genealogy thought for the week: why not set yourself your own genealogy challenge for the year? I’ve seen a lot of variations of this online from genealogy bloggers, along the lines of “find 52 ancestors in 52 weeks” or “104 ancestors in 104 weeks”. I’m going to try this to get myself out of my personal genealogy rut – 52 ancestors in 52 weeks. I’ve started a bit late but I’ll let you know how it goes! If you would like to read more go to the “No Story Too Small” genealogy blog.
By the way, if you have not yet discovered the Legacy Family Tree webinars as a resource, you should check them out. You can sign up for most of the live webinars for free.
The webinars are usually held on Fridays which is the calmest day of the week for me so I can take the time to sit down for an hour at my computer and learn! The teachers are very good – succinct and articulate. Topics cover a broad range from beginner research to the more advanced. Today I’ll be taking a course on “Expanding Your Research from a Single Fact”. I’m hopeful it may give me some new ideas for breaking through my personal genealogy brick wall. I also enjoy their webinars about Irish genealogy research which can be very challenging.
After the webinars are aired they are kept in an archive. The webinars are all free for 7 days after first being aired. After that time period you have to pay to access some of the webinars and some remain free.
Good luck in your research!
