A-to-Z-Challenge-theme-reveal

 

alphabet treeThe 2014 A to Z April Challenge is designed to challenge bloggers to post Monday through Saturday during the month of April resulting in 26 blog posts. If you can keep up. The A to Z part of the challenge consists of using the letters of the alphabet—one per day—on which to base your posts. It helps to have a theme to tie your posts together and I think it was easier to come up with 26 words to use as topics because I had an overall theme. Although I fudged a little and some of my words are actually phrases. (hehehe)

Since this is a blog about family history, my theme is Using Microsoft OneNote 2010 for Genealogy Research. My focus for the 2014 A to Z April Challenge will be explaining the way I use OneNote in my own family history research. I have 26 topics — A to Z — for OneNote. My posts will begin with the Letter A on 1 April and end with the Letter Z on 30 April. However I won’t be posting the rest of them in alphabetical order. (You will thank me later when the posts flow in order through the 26 topics rather than alphabetically.)

You can find a link to all the topics as they are posted listed on my OneNote A to Z tab above.

  • I love your blog idea. This could be very informative for those who are interested in Genealogy, like my brother. Good luck with the A to Z Challenge. This will be my first year.

      Thank you, Cheryl. This is my first year also. It reminds me of the craziness of NaNoWriMo. The main reason I like OneNote for genealogy is the paperless aspect. And the portability. But OneNote is like an electronic 3-ring binder so anything you might store in one can be converted to OneNote. I even have a notebook for collecting quotes and inspirational thoughts.

    So glad you are blogging in regards to family history and the use of “OneNote”. It’s about time for one of us to step up to the plate and discover our family history on the BERG side. We truly know very little about my dad’s side of the family so hopefully I will get inspired on the “How to” of genealogy.

    Will be checking both your blogs throughout the month. There’s always something new to learn in genealogy research!

I'd love to hear from you!
