National Genealogy Day

Today (March 12) is Genealogy Day, a nationally recognized day to research your family's history and heritage. I wish I had the time to sit down and do some of my own genealogy today, but I have about a hundred things to do, and none of them involve family research. Instead, I put together a list of some of my favorite blog posts regarding my personally genealogy, as well as a list of articles I have written to help you in your own family history research pursuits.

My Favorite Blog Posts
  • The Second Great American Local Poem And Song Genealogy Challenge (October 15, 2010) A poem written by my great-grandmother, Elizabeth (Beard) Baker
  • Gamble/McKillop Irish Immigrants (October 16,2010) Help me solve the mystery of this elusive family.
