PRESS RELEASE

Blogger Showcases Canada’s Veterans' Week 2012 (November 5th-11th)

(Ottawa, 29 October 2012) GenealogyCanada.blogspot.com — a daily blog that has covered Canadian genealogy, heritage, and history news since 2006 — will again publish a series of posts during this year’s Veterans’ Week by focussing on all aspects of the Canadian military, highlighting events occurring from coast to coast to coast.

“Veterans Week, which takes place this year from November 5th to the 11th, is a very important resource for readers of this blog. It allows us to remember those who fought in Canada’s wars, starting with the Boer War (1899-1902) to the War in Afghanistan (2002–2011), and to say ‘Thank you’ to those who gave so much for Canada”, says Elizabeth Lapointe, of GenealogyCanada.blogspot.com.

For posts from last year’s Veterans’ Week, please visit http://genealogycanada.blogspot.com/2011/11/blogger-showcases-canadas-veterans-week.html

Her column on Canadian genealogy news and resources for those seeking their Canadian roots has just been launched, and with the column, Elizabeth will continue to offer her breadth of knowledge on Canadian genealogy, and on cross-border migration between Canada and the U.S.

“I am very happy to write a column for GeneaBloggers, and to work with Thomas MacEntee, a world-renowned genealogy blogger. The second column will be ‘Canadians in the American Civil War,’ she says.

Genealogy Research Toolbox

This has been my week for webinars! I listened to two of them from Ancestry.com, and another one sponsored by the Southern California Genealogy Society at www.scgsgenealogy.com,which featured Thomas MacEntee from Geneabloggers www.geneabloggers.com called Genealogy Research Toolbox.

First of all, i It must be said that Thomas' Genealogy Toolbox is FREE to take from his site at http://genealogytoolbox.weebly.com/index.html. I have just been to his site, and there were a few links that I am interested in, and will add to my site, and you can do the same thing.

But not to get ahead of myself, a Genealogy Research Toolbox (GRT) is a list of links that you have decided is key to your research. After you have made your choices, you can organize them in either a website, a “wiki”, a blog, or maybe by using Favorites or Bookmarks in your browser, for instance. The choice is yours.

The first to do this was visit Cyndi's List at www.cyndislist.com to see what links are there which would interest you, take them, and add them to your own Genealogy Research Toolbox.  

One site I will be adding to my list is RootsWeb Search Thingy at http://searches.rootsweb.ancestry.com. I have used this before and found it useful, but haven't use it lately, so I will add that to my list.

Another site is the FamilySearch Family History Books on Beta http://books.familysearch.org/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?dscnt=1&dstmp=1337256808838&vid=FHD_PUBLIC&fromLogin=true. FamilySearch is putting the books that they have online (most are books that were published before 1923), and I will add it to my list, and read the books later.  

If you want more help setting up your own personal research list, you can go to Genealogy Research Toolbox at www.genealogy-research-tools.com to get excellent advice on how to set one up, and how to use it to your advantage.

So if you haven't set one up already, take some time to do it so that you can find sites very easily, saving you time and aggravation in trying to find them in the wide-open Internet world.  

My thanks go to the Southern California Genealogical Society and Thomas MacEntee for putting on this webinar.
