It was rain and travel, not flooding, that delayed publication of the May Blogger’s Almanac until today. Thank you, Almanac fans, for your patience.
This May 2010 Edition of the Genealogy and Family History Blogger’s Almanac is now available for free download, featuring weekly themes on
Going Postal with Postcards
Honoring Mothers & Special Women
Spring Is Here to Stay!
Celebrate Outdoor Cooking with National Barbeque Month
Honoring Those Who Served for Memorial Day
Last month, bloggers used ideas on the civil war, baseball, and gardening to spark ideas for their own blog posts and photo features. Here are a few highlights from bloggers who returned to leave a link to their posts
Jenna, Desperately Seeking Surnames, posted glorious photos of her garden peonies and other Alamanc-inspired stories on family baseball memories.
Jo Arnspirger, Those Who Went Before, wrote about a civil war ancestor whose military service poses a curious puzzle, and also shared family baseball story.
Sandra, Family Reflections: The Blog, shared her immigrant ancestor’s civil war record in a carefully-sourced article featuring photographs and documents.
Mary, Me and My Ancestors, remembered her dad gardening in New York and Florida, and favorite ballpark hotdogs.
You can download the May 2010 Blogger’s Almanac here. If you like the ideas featured in The Blogger’s Almanac and use them at your blog, please leave a link at The Family Curator. Enjoy.
