Follow Friday

I may have only been blogging for a few days, but I've been reading them for several years. There are so many terrific blogs that I follow that it's difficult to pin down just a few. I think for my first meme I'll stick with two--one genealogical and one non-genealogical.

This week I have been devouring Barbara Matthews' posts over at The Demanding Genealogist. Barbara's no-nonsense, take no prisoners look at professional genealogy is spot on. Thanks for taking this difficult topic head on, Barbara!

The non-genealogical blog I love is OTD Passion. It's brand new and ostensibly about Operational Training and Development. It's really much more about understanding your passion and making it work for you. The astute genealogists out there will soon realize that this blog is written by my husband, Eric. I swear I'm not biased. I just finally talked him into sharing his insights with more than just me.

Check them out; I think you'll enjoy them!


  1. Great name for your blog! I totally agree with your premise that too often we reduce our ancestors to names and dates. Names and dates are necessary--but the stories are what engage me.

  2. Welcome to the GeneaBloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!

  3. Welcome to the GeneaBloggers Community. I look forward to you research.
