I'm on a break from work over Christmas/New Year so decided to so some more family tree research. It's a subject I got interested in about a year ago when I started my Pitcairn Island news weblog and wanted to find more about my Pitcairn ancestry.
Lately I've had some luck tracking down some UK ancestors so I decided to fire up a new blog on doing family history research from New Zealand - mostly writing about the online services available and eventually some of the software I've written to help manage the genealogy information (in Factor and Erlang mainly). If you're interested in that sort of thing, visit My Genealogy or grab its atom feed. Doing this as a weblog also has the positive side effect of putting the names I'm gathering information about onto the web so that google and other search engines can pick up searches from people looking for the same people.
