Project Tags

This project is used to track genealogy blogs that exist on the web. As a starting point I've created an OPML file with all of the blogs that I have in my reader.

As an addendum/reminder, this is a message I sent in response to M. Mysels tonight -- she asked me to provide a good starting point for folks that were unable to work with the link above:

Ms. Mysels,

Thanks for all the great info. I tried to share the Google Doc back to you, but I think there are some limitation and I'm not sure what they are.

Here's my best advice, mostly because I'm time-stretched right now and I can't spend enough time reading blogs as I'd like to....

I started here: http://genealogy.alltop.com/

I added all of those blogs to my reader. Then, I found this, and added the remainder of them to my reader:

http://blog.familytreemagazine.com/insider/2010/02/22/AnnouncingTheFamilyTreeMagazine40BestGenealogyBlogs.aspx

Once I had added all of those blogs, I had basically reached the point where I was able to see all the genealogy info I could imagine I'd want to see, and perhaps a little excess. But I think this is a great starting point, and I'd like to get the project into the kind of shape that makes it easy to follow all of these blogs, as well as any additional blogs that didn't make this specific cut but are worthwhile.

I imagine it will take me a couple months to get all of this in order, but I will make sure to update the project as often as I can so that it can benefit everyone. And hopefully, some of the blog readers on the site will help out and collaborate on the project, as I think this could easily be the number one resource for new genealogists to find their resources for diving in.

Hopefully this is helpful. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let me know!
