10 Genealogy Blogs Worth Reading

I was asked yesterday to compile a top ten list of genealogy blogs for I created the Blog Finder so I wouldn't have to play favorites in my blog roll, so instead of a "top ten" I decided to offer an unranked list of 10 Genealogy Blogs Worth Reading. I tried to include active, well-written blogs on a range of topics, mostly for a general audience, mostly from an amateur's perspective. These are obviously not the only genealogy blogs worth reading, nor are they the only genealogy blogs I read. But I think the list offers a good sampling for the uninitiated, and a reminder of how rich our community has become.


Hi, Chris,
Thank you for the pointer to Tracing the Tribe! It is an honor to be included in such an esteemed list!

Best wishes

These are great blogs and they would give anyone interested in genealogy a good immersion in the topic!

Thank you for including TransylvanianDutch in your list; I am both stunned, and honored.

John Newmark


Very interesting list. I'll have to do some reading.

I was just told to check you out by a fellow New Englander and Packard descendant.


You were added to the list for one reason, John: you added the word "amanuensis" to my vocabulary.

Craig Manson


Thanks for the high honor! I agree that we have a rich and diverse community and you help keep it that way!


Thank you Chris, for including footnoteMaven in this erudite list of geneablogs.

As always, I've got my pince nez on you.




Thank you so much for including me on your list! It is truly an honor to be included among these knowledgeable and well-respected bloggers.



You are all deserving of the honor, and of whatever little traffic it sends your way. I only wish the list could have been longer.

Thanks for including one of my blogs on this list.

Great folks associated with it..

I don't know if it's better to have family stories that aren't true or no stories at all. I come from a
family of non-story-tellers, so I especially appreciate reading other people's. Yours are gems!
