National Genealogical Society Blog

The National Genealogical Society (NGS) has starting posting a blog at  I see several advantages here.  The obvious one is that stuff is available immediately when posted instead of waiting for the newsletter to come out.  And if you are reading this, you may like the blog format better than a newsletter. Then there are comments on the articles which can add value to the articles.  Of course the advantage to the NGS is that by making this information more public, they may increase public awareness of the organization.

Reidy website

If you have Reidy (or some spelling variants), you may want to check out my website, the Gathering of Reidys, if you haven't visited lately. Lots of queries from other researchers interested in the name and some general information. It has moved and the new URL is: 
Also linked to it are lots of resources for genealogy in Ireland and Co Limerick (Ireland).  You should be able to get to these from my Reidy page but if you rather start a my main page, the URL for that is:
URL Updated Jan 16, 2010 because I moved pages around in a general reorganization of website.
