Ruminations on Genealogy
I actually started writing an essay about genealogy in a notebook. Something I’ve not done in a long time.
Rather than do everything online, it is an interesting experience to do things the “old-school” way. The essay I’m working on is still quite short, only 4 pages so far, and I’m not sure where it will end up. Hmmm.
I’m also working on a few more items for the Seattle Genealogical Society, which publishes still, on paper. Volunteering for a writing project with a society is a good way to broaden your skill-set and learn a few things about putting together a good genealogy case study, review, how-to article, or whatnot.
The great thing is that if you have just about anything written in a good, recognized style, a genealogy society might be able to use it. Talk to your local society editor and see what they need for their next bulletin or newsletter or journal.
Have fun, and Happy Monday!
