Well, in case you don't or your new here (welcome)! I am going to tell you a bit about the idea and what the catalyst was.
It all started with a genememe hosted by +Jill Ball. As I answered a set of questions, which you can read HERE, I vaguely floated the idea that genealogists are friendly, supportive and absolutely get the value of social media. I also said that genealogists are truly breaking down the barriers of time zones and brick wall by embracing not just the social media of today, but by collaboration. The coming together of like minded people across the globe using social media as a platform to educate, embrace, collaborate and share friendships and whatever else takes your fancy.
I then developed the concept which is as follows:
- One Blog
- A Blog post written each day by a different blogger
- The only criteria is that the content of the blog post must be about one (or even all) of the following
- Local History
- You can use this platform to mention your Society or a genealogical event or alike.
If you are interested please leave a comment or drop me an email using the subject line of Global Genealogy to
If you have already stepped forward, thank you . I have all those details and will be in touch in due course with the devised blog details and schedule.
Closing date is 20th December 2013.
There will be a introductory post on 31st December 2013 and the Global Genealogy blog will launch 1st January 2014
Here is an opportunity to take part in a genealogical, historical and social media extravaganza
So, what are you waiting for?
