Maiden Voyage of My Geneablog

Maiden Voyage of My Geneablog

Thanks to the Blogger Summit and veteran geneablogger Thomas MacEntee‘s class at the Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree, I’ve decided to take the plunge and start blogging.

I am a librarian and archivist (and I’ve even played one on tv), so I thought I might share some thoughts on family research from both sides of the reference desk.

My first job out of library school was running a local history and genealogy department right about the time that Roots made genealogy so popular. A few years have gone by since then, but family history is more popular than ever.

Just now my research is in the U.S., Scotland, Sweden, Norway, South Africa, and New Zealand. I’m a bit intimidated about Prussia, Germany, Austria, and Poland so far, though.

I feel like I need a post sign-off like Edward R. Murrow. How about: Good night and good searching!

    Welcome to the genealogy blogosphere. Since I have some connection to Illinois (Bloomington, McLean County), I’ll be happy to follow your blog. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the warm welcome, everybody. I’m a pretty old hand at genealogy, but definitely new to blogging, so I’ll try not to hurt your eyes too much.

    Karen, most of my folks ended up right in Chicago, but my husband’s were in Knox, Jo Daviess, and I think a bit in McLean too.
