Blogging Your Genealogy: Sites, Software, and More

Cousin Bait. That’s what Amy Coffin, MLIS and genealogy blogger at WeTree.blogspot.com, calls her blog posts (see Figure 9-1). If you want to cast your nets for possible connections in your genealogy, a regular blog is a great way to do it. It’s also an excellent place to share your research problems and genealogy happy-dance moments to other genealogists around the world. Blogs can truly be one of the most important tools for your genealogy research!
