With fall workshops coming up and the end of the year quickly approaching, it it perhaps time to consider plans for next year’s season of workshops and events. To expand your own horizons, here are some suggestions:

-Take a technology genealogy workshop.
-Learn how to create a genealogy blog.
-Consider writing an article for your favorite genealogy publication

Visit some new features on old sites—such as the Family Search Wiki.

Thanks to a recent post on Low Country Africana a guest blogger Robin Foster revealed some practical features of the new wiki on Family Search. org’s site, and I applied some of her suggested methods and learned about some new resources in the places that I research. Thanks to both Robin and to Low County Africana for a great article!

That kind of article inspires all of us to put more energy into the resources that we use. Explore new sites, new blogs and click on some of those links that you might not ordinarily click on and see what you might learn!

Well—-another week’s show comes to an end. Thanks for listening, and let me hear from you!

In the meantime, keep researching, keep documenting, and keep sharing what you find!
