After a few conversations with a friend of mine, I found myself taking over a small website that he started but didn’t have time for, Genealogy-blogs.org. The summary: it’s going to be a directory for genealogy blogs, media (newspaper/magazines/etc.) that have regular genealogy columnists, and for some genealogy news sites. I’m not limiting it to much, but I’m going to try and keep it focused. It’s not going to replace Cyndi’s List (I don’t think anybody could), or a site like RSSGenealogy.com.
Instead it’s going to be a directory for genealogy sites that you might want to check out a on a regular basis, a few times a week, sorted into a relevant category.
I’m going to try and do a brief summary for each, and right now I have around 30 listed (of which about 20 of those were already there). I plan on doubling or trippling that over the next few weeks. As I add new sites, I will post the new additions on the front page so that you can see them at a glance.
If you know of any sites or categories that you think should be included, feel free to drop me an email through the contact page. I know there are quite a few genealogy blogs out there that I’m missing.
I’m just about finished with the redesign of this site (RandomGenealogy.com) – I just want to test a few things before I change it over.
