Follow Friday - Blogs of Genealogical & Historical Societies

Recently I have started to follow several historical and genealogical society blogs. Most of these blogs have information about local history, upcoming events, and links to other useful websites. What has been most useful is that I don't have to travel to the particular area to garner information about ancestors that have settled in these states. Especially with some being a considerable distance from our home.

AHA Today Blog: American Historical Association

The Beehive: official blog of the Massachusetts Historical Society

The Brooklyn Historical Society Blog

California Genealogical Society & Library Blog

Cape Cod Genealogical Society: Barnstable County, Massachusetts

Eastern Washington Genealogical Society Blog: genealogical news from Spokane, Washington, USA, and the Inland Northwest

The Historical Society: a blog devoted to history for the academy & beyond

History Burgoo: a mix of history, culture and other ingredients, presented by the Kentucky Historical Society

Illinois State Genealogical State Blog

Indiana Genealogical Society Blog

Indiana Historical Society Blog

Minnesota Historical Press 10,000 Books

MoSGA Messenger: the official weblog of the Missouri State Genealogical Association

Ohio Historical Society Collections Blog

Ontario Genealogical Society Blog

Lastly the Genealogy Blog Finder is a useful tool in locating many types of genealogy blogs.

Discover if there are historical or genealogical society blogs where you are researching.

Happy Follow Friday!
