This morning at the Nevins Public Library in Methuen, Massachusetts there was a GeneaBlogger Panel discussion with some of your favorite New England genealogy bloggers. Cynthia Shenette, Marian Pierre Louis, Bill West, Lucie Consentino and Heather Rojo all spoke about how they started blogging, how it has helped with genealogy research, "cousin connections" and other topics related to genealogy blogging.
Blogger Erica Voolich was there in the audience, too.
It was Bill West's first time speaking in public about genealogy and blogging, and he sure fooled us! He was quite the professional speaker, and very entertaining, too.
Blogger Polly Kimmett was there for a reunion with her fellow Geneabloggers.
Marian Pierre Louis made an announcement that Elizabeth Shown Mills will be on one of her upcoming podcasts at her Fieldstone Common blog. Don't miss this one! It should be great!
Stay tuned! If you are a member of the Massachusetts Society of Genealogists, the Merrimack Valley Chapter will be hosting an upcoming workshop on how to start your own genealogy blog. I hope this blogger panel generated interest in the benefits and entertainment of genealogy blogging, and check your newsletter for an upcoming announcement of this workshop.
