Wisdom Wednesday: Finding Blogs via Genealogue

Have you ever used the Blog Finder at Genealogue to look for surname blogs or other genealogy blogs? I hadn't been to the main page for many months and this morning I took a fresh look.

Genealogue currently lists more than 100 sites with genealogy news, not just the usual few I check.

Alas, I found no surname blogs for my family's names, but there were a few locality blogs where I'm going to read and search entries in the hopes of a lead or two.

And I came across a Finnish genealogy blog for my friend who has roots in that country.

All in all, it was a good visit and I'm going to be back for ideas and, if I'm lucky, some connections to ancestor data. Maybe you'll have some luck with your names and locations?!
