Worldwide Genealogy – a new collaboration

It’s an exciting day for me today. My first blog post on a new, collaborative blog was published.

Worldwide Genealogy blog

Worldwide Genealogy is a fresh way of looking at genealogy, history and local history. Julie Goucher, who you may know from Anglers Rest and her many other online presences, started it “in the spirit of all things genealogical and historical [to] produce a blog, written daily by someone different everyday from across the globe”.

So far in its two-week-long life there have been posts from genealogists and family historians from England, Scotland, Wales, Australia and the United States.

There’s still room for you to sign up for a monthly post or an occasional piece – find out how to contribute here.

Or you could just pop in and comment.

It’s all about collaboration, being social, and sharing – something geneabloggers do naturally, it seems to me.

Thank you, Julie, for starting Worldwide Genealogy and for doing me the honour of asking me to post on the 14th of each month. And thanks to everyone else who helped set it up and who’s joining in.

About rebelhand

A Rebel Hand is: about Nicholas Delaney, Irish rebel of 1798, transported as a convict to New South Wales, roadbuilder, innkeeper and farmer. My great-great-great grandfather. Other ancestors transported to Australia, like Sarah Marshall, John Simpson and James Thomas Richards, pop up as well. This blog's also about the historical background to their lives, in England, Ireland, and Australia. My respectable Welsh ancestors sometimes get a look in.
