Family Tree Blogs to follow

Just like tree frogs hitching a ride on bananas, it is sometimes easy to get lost or distracted whilst surfing the internet.

If you find a blog you like, it is great to be able to follow it or subscribe to RSS feeds and check on it on a regular basis.

I follow and subscribe to a number of family tree blogs such as Anglo Celtic Connections, Chris Paton's Walking in Eternity, GeneWebinars, Roots and Rambles, The Armchair Genealogist, The Turning of Generations, Geniaus and Family History Across the Seas.

Each blog has its own merits but the ones that appeals to me the most - or the ones that I find myself most often reading are Geniaus and Family History Across the Seas

I'm not quite sure why that is...maybe it is because they are written by Australian women and so I identify with their struggles and also am inspired by their passion.

Geniaus aka Jill Ball is very excited by new technology and Web 2.0 and her enthusiasm is positively infectious!

Cassmob is a very disciplined blogger who writes engaging stories with great photos on a regular basis. 

I am very grateful to these two bloggers and the geneablogosphere in general for inspiring me to start my own family tree blog and giving guidance on how to maintain and improve your blog. 

Which bloggers inspire you the most?

Thank you so much for mentioning my blog as one of your favourites. It's been a real thrill for me to know you enjoy it (not sure about the disciplined bit though!) I'm looking forward to reading through your posts as well and following on Google Reader.

Thank you Sharon for your welcome to genealogy blogland - I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts too.

Cassmob - it's a pleasure to acknowledge such fine work. Keep it up :)

I approve of your selection - they are among my favourites too. I was rather late writing my Week-1 post, but that gave me an excuse to highlight two blogs that receive less attention than they deserve.

These are all great blogs. Geniaus is as great in person as she seems on her blog. You'll really enjoy her posts, and I look forward to reading yours as well.
