Chris Dunham, the man behind The Genealogue, is now introducing a new genealogy blog. This one—The Family Historian—will focus on providing the best genealogy advice for the family historian from genealogy blogs across the web. The goal of this site is to “become a database of the collective wisdom of the community.”
I’ve already poked around a little bit and saw several articles that I can’t wait to read. So, you know I’ll be adding this site to my morning routine—I’ll just need to set my alarm a little earlier (an hour or three or five), so I can still start work on time!
How can you help? The articles can be rated by “a star rating system to allow visitors to offer their opinions, so that (eventually) the best articles may rise to the top and be more easily found.” So by reading the blog and rating the articles you are helping other family historians to quickly and easily find the best genealogy advice without having to comb the web for it. You can also suggest blog posts to add to the site—posts that you’ve found especially helpful in learning to do and improve your family research.
