I have been working on my free genealogy lesson site, USA Family Tree, for the past week or two. I have spent several hours every night trying to refine the lessons and draw in more subscribers. I am hit the 1,500 subscriber mark the other night. I am not exactly setting the genealogy world on fire but that is not too shabby! I am also thinking about writing a paper for the 2011 National Genealogical Society conference in North Charleston, South Carolina. Maybe I will get selected to speak down there...we will have to wait and see. Have any of you do that before, submit a genealogy paper for a conference? If so, any suggestions?
For the past few weeks, with the holidays and the snow that we had, I have been unable to get down to the state archives. I am hoping to go there this Saturday since I have not been in such a long time. (A long time for me is more than a month or two). I am fortuate to live pretty close to the archives, a luxury I know that many of you do not have.
I also created a Facebook fan page for my genealogy lesson site. You can check it out here: USA Family Tree's Facebook Fan Page. I currently have 184 fans...not too bad for only a few days.
It bother me a little...I cannot help but feel that I am neglecting this blog! I honestly have not had anything good to add concerning Virginia genealogy so I don't want to waste your time, just for the sake of creating blog posts. I did also start a new blog associated with my free genealogy lessons, you can see it here. I have written some good posts there recently, about general genealogical topics. I really do not like having two blogs but the readers of that one are not so Virginia-oriented.
Well, maybe I will come across something good to share when I go to the archives on Saturday. If I do, I will let you all know.
