I’m grateful to have been selected as a Blogger of Honor at the 2011 AZ Family History Expo.  Please join me in Mesa Jan 21-22.

Last year was my first year to attend, and I was not disappointed in the least!  The speakers were fantastic, the exhibit hall was buzzing with happy family history seekers, lunch (served there for a small cost) was delicious.  I met some wonderful people, who have become online friends throughout this year, and I learned more about family history, genealogy and using social media and technology in regards to searching for ancestors.  The atmosphere was warm and friendly, and I can’t wait to get back there for more this year.
Please save the date:
Jan 21 and 22, 2011

Share Your Family History

There is a site called rootsweb that allows you to share your family history with others.  There are three purposes to the site: Share your research, communicate with others, and volunteer.  Rootsweb is an ancestry.com community.  You may use this site to look and see what others have compiled about your ancestors.  Keep in mind that records compiled by others are not always accurate, and should be proven with other sources.  However, if you are stuck in your research this is a great place to look.  The message boards are a good place to see if you are researching an ancestor in common with someone else.  Happy connecting!
