One of the most difficult things about working in Genealogy & Local History is keeping current. I subscribe to a number of blogs and newsletters. Some of the announcements and information overlaps, but I realize it's better to have the overlap than to miss something.
Below are some websites, blogs and newsletters you can follow. The list is in no particular order or ranking. Of course, there are many others, and I'm not endorsing any of them.
