Follow Friday: We Tree

This week my Follow Friday recommendation is the We Tree blog by Amy Coffin. Amy's blog is a mix of her own genealogy research, professional development and fun. Not to mention her Rock Star status. Amy has a very clear, down to earth writing style that is very enjoyable to read.

Here are just a few of the reasons you should be following We Tree:
  • Amy is the creator of many great blog topics for individual genealogy bloggers and genealogy society blogs. Her "52 Weeks to Better Genealogy" are weekly blog topics hosted by Geneabloggers for 2010. Each week Amy will present a new topic to enhance everyone's genealogy blogs. I don't know how she comes up with all these great topics, but I can't wait to follow along and find out what the next topic will be.
  • Amy's series "Anatomy of a Military Pension File" is a fascinating look into the civil war pension file of one of her ancestors (all 103 pages of it). I'm so jealous of all the wealth of information that she is obtaining from this file. NARA can't find one of my ancestor's pension files and the other is just full of medical records and requests for pension increases.
  • Amy has done a few genealogy book reviews and I hope that she does more. Her latest review was on George G Morgan's How To Do Everything (With Your) Genealogy. She gives an honest take on what books are worth your money.
  • Amy is a Blogger of Honor for the Mesa Family History Expo. I'm sure she will wear the title well and keep us all informed of her experiences.
If you are not already following the We Tree blog, hop over there and find out why I think it's a great blog to spend some time reading.
