Amy Coffin of the We Tree blog www.wetree.blogspot.com has put together a great series of weekly blog prompts to help those new to genealogy as well as those who would like to strengthen some genealogy/family history skills. These prompts are listed on www.geneabloggers.com — a valuable shared community resource.
Here is this weeks challenge.
Go to your local public library branch again. Examine the local history, archives and/or special collections section. Ask a librarian if you don’t know if your library has special collections or where they are located. Be sure to check the reference section, too, as many of the newer and more valuable books are held in that area. If you have a genealogy blog, write about what you find in your library’s local history and special collections.
This challenge runs from Saturday, 9 January 2010 through Friday, 15January 2010.
