The blog I am most thankful for? Genealogy's Star, by James Tanner. What am I talking about? Amy Coffin's latest "52 Weeks..." series, described here at geneabloggers.com; here is Week 1's prompt:
Blogging is a great way for genealogists to share information with
family members, potential cousins and each other. For which blog are
you most thankful for? Is it one of the earliest blogs you read, or a
current one? What is special about the blog and why should others read
James Tanner's Genealogy's Star was one of the first blogs I read when I was beginning to write my own and wondering what to say. He always has pithy opinions on genealogical matters, and always makes me think right down to his last full stop (or period, since he is American).
An official Rootstech blogger, he has written a wonderful guide to FamilySearch and his knowledge is something which makes me look up to him (albeit in a long-distance sort of way). I hope I can be as good as him some day! I would recommend that others read his posts to find out what a good blog looks like.
