Follow Friday: Elgin Genealogical Society


Funny how something wonderful can sit right in front of your eyes and you don't see it until someone takes the time to point it out to you.  Such is the case with the Elgin Genealogical Society blog.

The EGS blog not only has been highlighting activities of its society for the past 18 months, but it is also a "community blog," meaning there are several authors who post articles and make contributions.  This tells me that they are a pretty tech savvy group if they can round up eight folks who feel comfortable enough blogging!

Not only does the EGS blog point out some valuable resources and post meeting announcements, but it also includes members stories which are interesting to read.  Check out their list of Internet genealogy sites with an emphasis on Illinois genealogy.

Thanks to ISGS Board member Julie Cahill Tarr of GenBlog for point this great genealogy blog out to me!  If you have an Illinois-related genealogy blog or resource that you want to see highlighted here at the ISGS blog, send your "find" to ilgensoc@gmail.com.

Thank you for sharing this! I have some ancestors who were in Elgin for a few years, so maybe some connections can be made here!
