The One Rhode Island Family Blog is a blog I read every so often. I first found it when I was checking into some of my ancestors who had roots within Rhode Island. Rhode Island has a wealth of genealogy resources and settlements in Rhode Island date back to the earliest colonial times in New England.
The One Rhode Island Blog explores families and resources through the state of Rhode Island. There are more than forty blog topics and/or family categories. The blog typically posts at least one entry per month. These posts can be quite lengthy and full of information. If you have any connections to Rhode Island, be sure to check out this blog.
The Genealogy Tip of the Day Blog offers short but very useful tips each and every day. The tips can range from using newspapers, utilizing local local records to so much more. I make it a point to check out what the Genealogy Tip of the Day is every day. Somedays it’s a goldmine to help me find that hidden genealogy nugget.
The Armchair Genealogist is a wonderful family history blog. I have been following this blog for almost a year now. It is sometimes hard to find archived blog topics and posts, but the posts and wonderfully written and provide a large number of tips on finding your ancestors and writing about your family history.
The Genealogue is a genealogy blog I stumbled upon quite some time ago. The first blog post is way back in May of 2005. There were regular blog posts right up until April 2010. Since then though there has only been one blog post and that was is June 2012.
Even though there are no regular blog posts any more, the archived blog posts are good. The most recent post was entitled Ancestry DNA and a Possible Faux-Pa. Since I really don’t know a lot about using DNA for ancestry, I found that blog post to be a very interesting read. Perhaps there are some surprises when you use DNA or perhaps DNA tests need to be refined a bit to be really useful.
There are more than one thousand archived blog posts. However there are no categories or tags shown. If you’re looking for information about a particular subject, you’ll need to use the blog search. Doing a blog search for “census” turned up quite a number of posts, some of which I found very interesting. Having categories or tags would be a bit more useful, but finding relevant and interesting posts with the search feature is pretty easy.
