I saw this on Thomas MacEntee’s blog Geneabloggers and wanted to share the link to the original blog posting at Hidden Genealogy Nuggets. It is a series of blog post prompts begun in January of 2013 by Jim Sanders. The prompts follow the 50 states and territories by their dates of admission to the country. Here is the full gist of the prompt:
This year I thought I’d offer my readers a weekly blogging prompt. Each week the blog post will focus on a particular state. The post can be about a particular individual or family who lived in or was connected in some way to that state. Sometimes there will not be a personal connection to the state. In this case find a genealogy resource for that state to talk about and highlight instead. Follow along with this series and post to your own site.
