Society Saturday: Speaking to the Westchester County Genealogical Society

Photos by my sis :)
Today I spoke to the Westchester (NY) County Genealogical Society on the topic of Using Boards and Blogs for Genealogy. 

This society maintains a surname database with more than 1,000 member queries, publishes a monthly newsletter, and has a very active meeting schedule featuring all kinds of speakers. Last month, I attended the society's Irish-American genealogy meeting and heard an excellent presentation by Joe Buggy.

During today's presentation, I listed the following resources for genealogical message boards and blogs. How many do you use?

·     RootsWeb/Ancestry message boards      

·     GenForum message boards on
 ·     Cousin Connect boards (especially good for adoptions)

·     Cyndi’s List links to surname message board info

 ·     Mocavo genealogy search engine

 ·     Google blog search

 ·     Genealogy blog finder
