The easiest way to get started is with the Feedly online newsreader platform – found at http://feedly.com. Click on the Start Exploring button to begin adding feeds.
When the Add Content sidebar appears, type genealogy into the search box and you’ll get a list of genealogy blogs and feeds to choose from . Click on one (FamilySearch blog in this example) and the latest feeds from that site appears in the main screen. Click the green Follow button to add that blog to your subscriptions. Go back to the sidebar to add other sites to your subscription list.
Here are some recommended sites to include in your reading list:
- Ancestry Blog – latest news and tips from Ancestry.com.
- FamilySearch Blog – news, tips and updates from FamilySearch.
- Genealogy Tip of the Day
- The Legal Genealogist
- Genealogy101. If you don’t see it, search for genealogy101.tumblr.com.
- The Family Curator – you will probably have to search for this too.
Notice at the far right of the Feedly screen, there’s a column called “You Might Also Like”. Keep an eye on this to find other blogs and sites you might find interesting.
