Presentation: GENEALOGY BLOGS: How they can help in Your Genealogy Research - Sierra Pope
The world of genealogy blogs has grown exponentially the last several years. There are thousands of people writing their own genealogy blogs. Join us to learn what a blog is, how genealogy blogs can assist your research, how to find genealogy blogs on the internet, why you should write your own blog, and how to start your own genealogy blog.
Sierra Pope has been researching her family history for 14 years. She got hooked in college. Sierra stumbled across some genealogy blogs while clicking around the internet in early 2011. After following several blogs, she started writing her own: www.upinthetree.com. She lives in Novato, where she is busy being a mom to two young children.
About our Meetings:
The Genealogical Society General meetings are open to the public, with no admission fee. Feel free to drop in! Bring your friends as everyone is welcome. Come early and ask your burning genealogical questions of other members before the meeting.
We meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month, with a couple of exceptions. November's meeting is held on the 3rd Wednesday, due to Thanksgiving. There is no general meeting in May, due to our Annual Picnic, nor in December, due to the holidays and our Winter Holiday Party.
Annually, several of our regularly scheduled meetings have a certain focus: April, we hold our Annual General Meeting and Elections (but there's usually a presentation also); May of each year we hold an Anniversary Celebration or Annual Picnic; and in September, we have a workshop.
