Once hubby and I decided on a trip to the Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference, we ordered business cards for surname networking. (We chose VistaPrint, which prints good-looking cards at a reasonable price.)
what the back of the networking card looks like. The card stock is
white and the lettering is black. I've put it against a yellow
background so the card is more readable here:
if we meet people interested in these surnames or researching these
counties, we can hand them a card and stay in touch. Who knows, someone
might know someone who knows someone . . .
front of the card, with one of our fave photos of the Steiner sisters
of Upper Sandusky, Ohio, and of course our contact info (this blog's URL
plus e-mail addresses and phone number, but no address).
green tree clip art was part of the card design we chose, a perfect
symbol to represent our efforts in climbing our family tree.
I was inspired to create the card by reading how other gen bloggers use cards for surname and family history networking--thanks, in particular, to Gena's Genealogy and Barbara Poole's Life from the Roots for good ideas.
