Entering the genealogy blogosphere :: Our top 50 blogs

Seen this badge? Then you're looking at one of our top 50 genealogy blogs.


In our current Issue 10, Australian blogger Jill Ball outlines our top 50 blogs that every genealogist needs to follow including libraries, societies, personal historians, speciality topics, international sites and organisation blogs. You can read the full article in Issue 10 or click here for a sneak peak.

Genealogy blogs can  be a wealth of information for family historians, as the immediacy of content is just an upload away. Jill Ball looks at the growth of blogs, and the best 50 to follow. The collaborative nature of blogging should not be underestimated; bloggers get a real buzz when someone makes a comment on one of their posts! If you read and enjoy a post please take the time to make a comment.

  1. Thankyou for enabling me to highlight some fantastic blogs via your magazine. The conversations that this has initiated on Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter demonstrate that bloggers do get a buzz when someone responds to their work.

    Hopefully the article will entice more of your readers to join our active family of Australian Geneabloggers.

  2. Thank you Jill, we'll definitely encouraging our readers to blog and get involved with Geneabloggers. There's so many stories being told on blogs, that need to be. Thanks again!

  3. With many thanks to you both for the inclusion of our blog in the Top 50. It sure is great to see the buzz it has created online and the article has many blogs we weren't aware of. For us it coincided with both our 40th post and our blog turning one year old - quite the trifecta!
