This week, a number of freebies and special offers designed to help genealogists with technology and research went online:
Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers and High-Definition Genealogy added four new free Cheat Sheets to his blogs (he already had one for Twitter which he created a year ago): Google Docs: Getting Started, WordPress: Getting Started, Blogger: Getting Started, and Facebook for Genealogists. These are all in .pdf format and can be saved to your computer and/or printed up to put in a binder.
Steve Danko of Steve's Genealogy Blog put together the free A Beginner’s Guide to Eastern European Genealogy, a .pdf version of his three-part series he published on his blog.
And to celebrate her genealogy talk today on "Using Social Networks for Genealogy" at the Immigrant Genealogy Society in Burbank, California, 20-year-old Elyse Doerflinger is offering her e-book, Conquering The Paper Monster Once And For All! for only $3.99. This offer is good until May 30th.
I now have a Special Offers page on my blog that lists all the current special offers, freebies, contests, and discounts available in the genealogy world. Check it out!
