In this issue of The Weekly Genealogist Barbara Poole introduces her blog.
My New England-focused blog, Life From The Roots, began over two years ago. The blog includes over 640 posts, in which I cover 85 different surnames, a lot of research tips, 103 cemetery postings, and 20 entries on the New England Historic Genealogical Society.
My roots are in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wyoming, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada.
Like many other genealogists, I got hooked on family history in an instant. I started over 22 years ago, and it hasn’t stopped. The blog was begun as a way to share what I know, and hopefully somebody will benefit. I’m also interested in photography, and often use my photos; I have another blog, called Seeing New England, which you might enjoy. I’m still learning research methods, trying to solve brick walls, and enjoy helping people. I would be pleased if readers would look through my genealogy posts or check the topics on the right side of the webpage to see if there is anything that interests you.
If you have any recommendations for blogs that should be featured in a future issue of The Weekly Genealogist, please let us know.
