Happy Birthday to My Genalogy Obsession blog!!!

On January 19, 2012, my blog will be 1 year old!  I remember when I made my first post…I was so nervous that no one would read my blog.  I’m glad to find out that I didn’t need to worry about that.  Well I would like to celebrate but instead of normally receiving gifts, I will be giving gifts to you, my readers as a thank you for your readership.

What do you have to do?  Well, just post a comment to this post sometime between now and 6:00pm on Thursday, January 19th.  You can let me know what you like about my blog and what you don’t like, advice, anything that has to do with my blog!  I will use Random.org to pick the winning comments and post them at 8pm.  After your name is listed as a winner, you have to email me your address with the subject line “Blog Anniversary Contest”.  Once I receive your address, I will mail your prize to you.

Their are several prizes to be had.  They are webinar-on-CD by Legacy Family Tree and Genealogy At A Glance on African American Genealogy Research by Michael Hait.  I received them with my Geneabloggers swag bag when I attended the SCGS Jamboree in 2011.  I have six CD’s prizes and one At A Glance available.

  • Chasing Women: Finding Your Female Ancestors presented by Leland K. Meitzler (I have two of these)
  • Backing Up your Genealogy Data presented by Thomas MacEntee
  • Dropbox for Genealogist presented by Thomas MacEntee
  • Blogging for Beginners
  • More Blogging for Beginners both presented by Dear MYRTLE
  • Building a Research Toolbox presented by Thomas MacEntee
  • Genealogy At A Glance African American Genealogy Research by Michael Hait.

So there will be eight (8) winners total.  Come on people, comment and win a prize!!!  If you feel the urge, subscribe and become a regular reader.  That would be awesome too!

Have a great weekend!!!

  2. Congratulations! I’m still trying to get up the nerve and energy to blog! I loved your post about ordering the death certificate for your grandmother. That is such good advice: When ALL of your searches are coming up without results, then one of your criteria is likely wrong. Loved it. Thanks

  3. Congratulations on your one year birthday! I am interested in following your blog as it is showing how you are developing as a blogger. Progress is what we all aim toward. I want to blog but have not had the courage to start yet. As you know, it is quite a commitment! So, I’ll keep following your efforts and working toward getting enough guts to start my own! Inspiration!

  5. Happy Birthday!!! I just found your blog today and I look forward to exploring it in the future. I just read part of your “about me” and like you I have been doing genealogical research for several years off and on and became more serious a few years ago. I have a great deal of respect for bloggers because I realize the commitment and dedication that it requires. So my hat is off to you and all the other genealogy bloggers out there. When I decided to become more serious about my obsession I started the American Records program with the National Institute for Genealogical Studies at the University of Toronto. It is a three part program with beginners, intermediate and advanced courses. It is an online program so it is very convenient and flexible.

    I look forward to exploring your blog more and learning from your experience.

    I hope you have a great birthday!!!!
