Beehive Buzz is an all-purpose, any topic, kind of web site, a place to go when I just feel the urge to vent or share.
Gathering the Givens: I try to post at this blog, anything and everything I come across for my Grandpa Givens' ancestry. We are planning a reunion for 2014 and since it's been ten years since the last one, I'm looking forward to touching bases with everyone.
I also have a WordPress blog, "GenQuest Diary", where I can post genealogy journeys and discoveries. Since WordPress is different than "Blogger", a Google generated brand, it's interesting to play around with it and stretch my brain by trying different things.
I encourage beginning genealogists to create family newsletters with the help of tools like online blogs. Your kin can keep up with your research results and share their present day family history in the making. For more information about creating a blog, I recommend this comprehensive article at FamilySearch.
