A new year has started and it begins a new series of 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History. The one for this week is as follows:
Week 1: New Year’s. Did your family have any New Year’s traditions? How was the New Year celebrated during your childhood? Have you kept these traditions in the present day? This challenge runs from Saturday, January 1, 2011 through Friday, January 7, 2011. I challenge everyone to participate as often as they can and time permits.
Saturday Night Fun in August using ImageChef. Alot of fun.
When someone dies, their estate may go through the Probate process. This record can generate data that can be helpful when researching your family. Probate Records can be of great benefit to you as you do your research.

Lowcountry Africana has joined with Footnote.com to create a FREE interactive Slave Records Collection. They will be digitizing every surviving estate inventory for Colonial and Charleston, SC from 1732-1872, as well as selected bills of sale for the same period, in a free collection on Footnote. The names of more than 30,000 enslaved ancestors are preserved in these records. They will need many willing hands to index the records; they will need volunteers and that is where YOU can help!

I was excited all day to finally be watching Who Do You Think You Are?. I had seen the previews and was all set when the show came on. I was already sort of down because I had found out this week that RootsTelevision and Ancestry Magazine had both decided to stop production. So, I needed something like this show to lift my genealogical spirits.
1) If you won the grand prize in the Ancestry.com Ultimate Family History Journey Sweepstakes of $20,000 for genealogy travel to places of your choice, where would you go, and what would you do? 2) Tell us of your dream genealogy trip using the prize money in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this post, or in a comment on Facebook.
There are many different ways to learn and research your family and develop good genealogical skills. Recently, I have been viewing videos on Youtube. When I did a word search for Genealogy on February 27, 2010, I was given 4,730 hits; search for Family History gave me 4, 280 hits; and Ancestry gave me 3,430 hits. Of course, not all of those hits will be useful to me, but I can use the search bar to narrow down my search using a Name or Place or Keyword such as DNA.
