Using a Blog for Genealogy Record Keeping

  From the Dear Myrtle Blog:

Using a blog for research note-taking

"A blog can certainly be used to plan a research project and to document progress. The added benefit when traveling to research facilities is that these blogged research notes can be accessed through any computer with internet access. "

 by Janet Crain

There are some very good points here. For one, blogs such as Blogger are so configurable that you can store records for years. You can keep records in draft or make your blog in whole or part private. And you can access these records anywhere you have Internet access.

I am experimenting now with using blogger to host the LEWIS Surname DNA Project website. It can be updated on the fly and used to host static pages of info as well. The Internet is evolving. Genealogy presentation and record keeping will also. 

There are expensive programs to do this with. But Blogger is FREE. And no ads. Check it out.
