Follow Friday - Emmasology

Heather Rojo from Nutfield Genealogy met an aspiring 11-year old genealogist at the Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree!  It's wonderful to see kids getting interested in genealogy and attending conferences!  Jennifer Woods' daughter, Ellie, was an attendee at the NGS conference in May.  Maybe one day my kids will be interested in attending a conference (so long as it doesn't interfere with school!).

Anyway, not only is young Emma interested in genealogy and attended a conference, she has her own blog!  So head on over to Emma's blog Emmasology.  How wonderful to watch a developing genealogist!

Shareable Family Trees with WikiTree

Today WikiTree announced the release of shareable Family Trees. No app to download and no advertisements!

You can checkout one of these trees here.

Right now I'm preparing for a trip back home and am getting my research calendar together, but I hope to be jumping into this sometime tomorrow or this weekend. WikiTree has done a pretty good job so far, so I look forward to trying this out. 

They also have some free widgets that you can imbed.

So what are your thoughts? I'm excited about the possibilities!
