Drumroll Please...

Announcing the birth of my new blog, Creative Genealogy!

Creative Genealogy (creativegenealogy.blogspot.com) is a blog for genealogists who enjoy getting creative with their family history. It will offer all sorts of creative ideas and helpful tips for taking your genealogy to the next level... the creative level! Topics will include digital scrapbooking, creative writing, family cookbooks, photo restoration, handcrafts, and more.

Genealogy is more than just names and dates, documents and vital records. It's all of your family's heritage in living color, with sound and graphics, tastes and smells, textures and emotion. This blog will show you how to preserve your family's heritage in a variety of ways beyond the standard fact-filled book with text and a few old photos. There are lots more options to explore...

It's a little nerve-wracking to start a new blog... wondering if there is an audience for your ideas. I must admit I was planning this introduction with the shortly-upcoming next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy in mind. Its topic will be, "Who inherited the creative gene in your family?". But I've only gotten 5 submissions so far (2 are mine!) and the deadline is today. So I'm starting to wonder if genealogists have creative genes in their family and if there will be any interest at all in my new blog ;-)

I hope you'll stop by and visit CGy and give me some honest feedback. I surely would appreciate it if you could help me get the word out about it too. Hugs and kisses to anyone who links to Creative Genealogy!!!

  1. Congratulations on starting a new blog Jasia! I certainly hope there's lots of interest. I checked it out, and I think it looks great. The design is very nice, and I have to admit, I've been debating about whether or not to buy Photoshop Elements! I wish you lots of luck!

  4. Hi Jasia,

    Your new blog looks great! You have inspired me to be more creative with my genealogy. I'm learning to make a webpage and I'm determined to have it up and running before my family reunion in mid-July. Eventually I plan on adding a blog to it, but one step at a time! It's a little intimidating when I see some of the great blogs out their like yours or Craig Manson's! I'll get there someday and in the meantime I continue to visit your blog, now blogs for inspiration. Thanks!

  6. Jasia, I really like the idea of a blog to discuss being creative with your genealogy. I have really wanted to get away from just the names and dates phase and be able to do something to make my research jump out at everyone!
    I am looking forward to reading more on your new blog!
