Writers Needed for Blog--a New "Career"?

The Cape Cod Genealogical Society’s Blog site is now up and fully operational (as you already know if you are reading this message); the Blog will continue to serve as a quick and appropriate communication vehicle for events and timely reports. But a Blog is only as good as the level of participation within any organization.

Volunteers are now needed for preparing brief stories or announcements on a somewhat regular basis. Some examples of perhaps monthly or occasional news items which could be sent to the Committee for posting would be:
  • Special announcements about genealogy publications
  • Book Reviews
  • Cape Cod Families
  • Anecdotes about Genealogical Breakthroughs
  • Relating Genealogy to Local History
  • Family History Humor
  • Updates on developments on
  • Updates on developments on
  • Announcements of genealogy workshops in our region
  • And more—your choice.
Creating content for a Blog is about as easy as using a word processor, and no technical skills are required. And, a bonus for anyone who becomes a Blog contributor -- Chris Geanacopoulos, our electronic “guru”, has offered to help train anyone in Blog methodology so that they will feel comfortable in the role; you won’t want to miss this chance.

Questions and ideas are welcome—contact the Publications Committee through either David Martin ( or Carolyn Weiss (; your participation is needed now!
