Harold Henderson who writes the Midwestern Microhistory blog http://midwesternmicrohistory.blogspot.com/ joined me on the Forget-Me-Not Hour two weeks ago to talk about the ins and outs of writing for genealogical publications. The show was extremely informative and inspiring for this writer.
Harold covered writing for local genealogy society newsletters, state publications and what he called the Big Five, the national scholarly publications: The American Genealogist, The Genealogist–published by the American Society of Genealogists, NGSQ–National Genealogical Society Quarterly, the New England Historic Genealogical Society Register and the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society Record.
He also talked about writing reviews (book, technology and other), books with your family’s genealogy, and internet writing, such as blogs and family history pages. Above all else, he advised that we write for the publications that we read.
