50 Best Blogs for Genealogy Geeks

Everyone's making a list!

Here are the 50 Best Blogs for Genealogy Geeks, compiled by OnlineUniversities.com.

Tracing the Tribe was happy to see many of our geneablogging colleagues listed - as well as ourself.

Americans are proud of their melting-pot culture, but genealogy is also a popular past-time and even profession, as family ancestry is complex and often hard to define. It takes a lot of research to untangle the web of genealogy in order to create a clear family tree, but as an online university student, you’re probably used to taking on similarly large projects. Either as a break from studying, a supplement to your history classes, or even for inspiration to start your own family ancestry research, check out these 50 blogs on genealogy.
General: Here you can learn how to get started with a genealogy project and read about the extraordinary stories that more seasoned researchers have to share.
