Techy tips for family historians

This issue web guru Paul Carter looks at how to blog about a family history event – whether it’s a national show or a monthly talk at your local family history society...


Blogging about family history events


For inspiration and learning, you cannot beat attending a family history show. This year we’re certainly spoilt for choice with some new national events, such as Family Tree Live, taking place alongside the many local shows across the country. Even FamilySearch is bringing its highly successful family history and technology conference RootsTech, from Utah, to these shores for the first time this autumn, something I am certainly looking forward to.

An additional benefit of these shows is that they’re rich in source material for writing blog posts (articles).

Not only will you feel motivated to write about your experiences after being surrounded by the family history world – but under one roof you will have listened to expert speakers, perhaps spoken to the big providers, gleaned research help from local family history societies, bought books and magazines, taken up show offers, seen what’s new and had the chance to catch up with fellow researchers.
