Genealogical and historical societies are the backbone of the pursuit of family history. Their dedicated volunteers preserve the local history of our ancestors and provide the programs and events we need to expand our genealogy horizons.
In The Big Genealogy Blog Book, which will be released soonish, I included a section of 25 writing topics that are geared toward genealogy society blogs.
As a big thank you to genealogy societies everywhere for their tireless dedication, I made the genealogy blog section of the book into a stand-alone document that is available as a PDF download right now.
And it's free.
25 Great Topics for Genealogy Society Blogs
So go get it. Share it with your genealogy societies and spread the word on your blogs, in your newsletters and through the social media.
If you're thinking about starting a blog for your genealogical society, just do it. Both Blogger and Wordpress have tutorials on setting up blogs and getting started. The hardest part of starting a blog is coming up with a name. If you use your society as your name, the biggest hurdle is done.
Thanks again genealogy society volunteers for all you do. I hope these topics are beneficial and help to get your group more exposure. If you use these blog prompts, leave a comment below so others can read your blog, too.
