BLOGS are the latest form of personalized web expression. While most are merely logs of one person's thoughts and achievements, many are digests of a variety of national and international sources. Users often post newly-discovered web sites and links that have assisted them in their searches. Of the tens of thousands of genealogical blogs on the net, it will take considerable 'thinning' to find the ones that will be of benefit. In Google, search for at least "blog" and "genealogy". Here are two:

GenealogyAndHow - Daily blog of what's new in genealogy.
GenealogyBlog - Blog entries from around the genealogy world.

Free Genealogy Search Help for Google

This is the fully-functional Google™ special search format for genealogists. It will create different Google searches using tips or "tricks" that will improve your search results.
