From time to time we benefit from reminders of things that are 'right in front of our face' - I'll put this recommendation in that category. Thanks to Randy Seaver for bringing it to my attention this week.

Carolyn L. Barkely in her wrote: "Genealogy Columns in Newspapers: Important Resources of Your Research."

Not only does she provide a number of excellent examples and sources, but, she also reminds each of us, who write regularly, that we should consider writing such a column, ourselves, for our local or home-town paper.

Again, excellent reminders! Thank you, Carolyn (and Randy!).

What do you think? Have you looked at these sources? Might you consider writing such a column? Do you? 

Comments welcomed.

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. Thanks again for the wonderful resources. I've often thought that it would be fun to write a column (though have no idea where I'd find the time--so it probably just goes on a future "to do" list for the time being). The information about newspapers that currently have columns as well as the "nut and bolts" of contacting an editor, etc. was very helpful.

  2. It is a good aspiration. Keep it on your list! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! ;-)
