Recently this forum posted a message >from me about my blog post
regarding Jewish genealogy bloggers who attended (and wrote about) the
IAJGS Conference.

Several readers told me that they'd not previously known about these
bloggers. The ones I've listed are but a few of the Jewish genealogy
bloggers. To see a more full list, go to Geneabloggers.com . Click on the
"Genealogy Blog Roll" tab and then put the word Jewish in the search box.
As of this morning, there are 36 Jewish genealogy blogs listed.

Additionally, some people enjoyed some of the blogs I listed so much
that they have decided to subscribe to some of them via email. Most
blogs feature an RSS feed tab on the blog page that allows one to
subscribe that way.

Another alternative, particularly if one wishes to subscribe to several
blogs and doesn't want to be overwhelmed with emails, is to use an
aggregator program. Aggregators collect updates of blogs to which one
has decided to subscribe. One enters the URLs for the blogs one wishes
to follow. To view selected blogs, click on the aggregator program and
view whichever blog posts are of interest. One may look at just post titles
or just a few paragraphs. Most aggregators have features one can select
to customize one's viewing/reading experience.

I am currently using Feedly.com . To see summaries of that and others,
go to Lifehacker, which did a review of several options this past June.

I find genealogy blogs, whether Jewish or not, a great educational tool.
There are several star bloggers out there who are both good writers and
excellent genealogists. One can learn quite a bit.
