Themes for April Blogging

It's a whole new month, and I'm so excited! March seems to drag on forever. I'm on Spring Break, at long last, and have been enjoying the rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Some of the genealogy projects I'm working on this week are an article I hope to submit to a publisher soon, an upgrading and revamping of my Online Genealogy class that I teach through the Community Colleges of Spokane (my next course starts April 19th), and preparation for a speaking opportunity that I've been invited to do in North Idaho in June.

In addition, I have some new themes I'll be blogging about during the month of April:
  • April 1st was Census Day for the 1930 U.S. Federal Census, and I'll be providing excerpts of 1930 census images of my ancestors, in much the same fashion that Michael John Neill reports on the rich and famous in his blog, Rootdig.com. I'll also share about those ancestors who didn't show up on that census (we can all relate to that, I'm sure!).
  • I've been reading some other genealogy and non-genealogy blogs, and I'll report on them. It's always fun to discover new finds!
  • Although it's been crazily busy in March, I did find some time to read or skim through some genealogy books and publications. I'll be sharing what I've read with you.
  • In February and March, there were a lot of genealogical happenings in the Spokane area. I mentioned a few here, here and here, but didn't have time to go into much detail. I hope to elaborate on those, because you'll find the information helpful as well.
