Genealogy News Bits for March 23, 2011

Here are some of the genealogy-related stories that I've come across today. I thought you might be interested in them:

Conference volunteers are wanted for the 2011 FGS Conference in Springfield, Ill. If you give your time, a portion of your registration fee is waived. More information here.

The National Genealogical Society has published some tips for first timers attending the 2011 Charleston, SC Conference. You can find that information at the NGS blog.

I came across this blog post and thought someone here might find it useful. How To: Be a Great Blogger When You're Not a Great Writer, by Tracy Gold, via SocialMediaToday. This is a general blogging piece, but it has good advice that can be used by genealogy bloggers.

A recording of the webinar Back Up Your Genealogy Data with Thomas MacEntee is available for free viewing until April 4. Details here.

Guess that's it for now. Go forth and be awesome.

  1. Amy - thanks for the roundup today. I nominated your blog for the One Lovely Blog award because it is always interesting and helpful. BTW, I "attended" Thomas' webinar today and I highly recommend it to your readers.
