Some of the Places I Find Articles – April 2, 2019

Updated August 22, 2019 – made changes to FindMyPast links; updated  July 19, 2019 – removed excessive Tags and Categories from this post; updated July 3, 2019 to add latest BillionGraves contest; updated June 27, 2019 with additional information; updated June 26, 2019 to clarify the small number of sites that I don’t check daily from the below list. Sadly, many of the links below go for feast or famine posts instead of posting on a regular and consistent basis.

I use a variety of places to find articles for my blog posts. In some cases, I re-blog or share another blogger or vlogger‘s link. In general, I try to re-blog/vlog two blog posts/day and one vlog/day. I may or may not comment on a re-blog/vlog or share, depending on if I think it needs a comment. In other cases, I may do a separate post with a link to the first post.

Other places I get my sources are from different companies blogs or vlogs. In some cases, I often have to look at two or more places on a company’s blog or vlog. With FamilySearch, I use and I often get e-mails from the different companies that may highlight something the company doesn’t add to their blog or news sections.

With FindMyPast, I use and (check on Thursdays and Fridays if they don’t update it on Thursday with FindMyPast Fridays).

For MyHeritage, I mostly use their blog although I also use

On Ancestry, it varies as I use a few other sections in addition to their blog,,, or

Recent Collections –

BillionGraves blog,, usually posts on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, or first of the month if they are running a contest so that’s when I check.

23andMe blog –

FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) blog –

In addition to the above, I am probably missing numerous other sites that I visit.

I use the WordPress Reader  on a daily basis as well as looking at some of the bloggers and vloggers I read or Follow.

I belong to many Facebook groups and sometimes people post links or articles that I find in a group. In other cases, somebody raises a question or makes some wild claim that sparks my interest.

At other times, I simply do an Internet search using my least favorite search engine. In those cases, I type in DNA, genealogy, or some other search term or phrase. I also look at suggestions on Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter.

In general, I give credit if I find something on another blog or vlog. However, due to the various places I mentioned above, I often find the article elsewhere first even if you see it first posted on another blog or vlog. I tend to go with scheduling my posts at specific times.

Another place I find stuff to post is crowdfunding sites or e-mails from various sites I have signed up for e-mail notifications.

Other places include comments or suggestions made by friends.
