Saturday Night Genealogy Fun with Randy Seaver is to source and transcribe the first paragraph of the last genealogy related book you read. Will be interesting to see everyone’s submissions! Another great challenge from Genea-Musings!
Randy Seaver at Genea-Musings has posted his challenge for Saturday Night Genealogy. This week is about Genealogisms..
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.

Genealogy Cruises are fast becoming the new way to attend genealogical conferences. The genealogy cruise has the speakers and lectures that we are use to; but also adds the wonderful food and relaxation a cruise can give.

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!
