So, to get an idea of where I get my news, here is a list of my favorite genealogy blogs:
Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter: http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/
If you have time to read only one blog, this one should be top priority. Dick Eastman has been writing this newsletter since 1996, and it's full of news and helpful information.
Midwestern Microhistory: http://midwesternmicrohistory.blogspot.com/
My friend Harold Henderson writes about "Genealogy and family history in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Michigan, and neighbor and feeder states". Since I have ancestors in Michigan and Ohio, and have done research for clients in all of these states, this is an important one for me.
Planting the Seeds: http://michaelhait.wordpress.com/
Michael Hait, a certified genealogist in the Delaware/Maryland area writes about the process of becoming a professional genealogist.
Genealogy Roots Blog: http://genrootsblog.blogspot.com/
As someone who uses Online Searchable Death Index and Records (http://www.deathindexes.com) on a regular basis, I need to know when updates are published. This blog notifies me of updates.
I've found that watching webinars is another good way to learn something new, on my own time, at home on my computer. This blog lets me know about upcoming webinars and how to register for them.
Randy Majors: http://randymajors.com/
Randy Majors is all about maps - he has some great tools on his blog that I need to use more often!
Clue Wagon: http://www.cluewagon.com/
Kerry Scott (who used to be a Human Resources executive) is hilarious and down to earth.
Up Front with NGS: http://upfront.ngsgenealogy.org/
The official blog of the National Genealogical Society - this keeps me informed about new videos & publications.
Marian's Roots & Rambles: http://rootsandrambles.blogspot.com/
Marian Pierre-Louis has done some great webinars for Legacy Family Tree, and writes interesting and informative articles on her blog.
These blogs represent a fraction of the 38 blogs I subscribe to on Google Reader. Which is informing me that I have 163 articles still unread, and more are being added every day.
Now, if you'll excuse me - I have some reading to catch up on!
