Two New Blogs from the California State Genealogical Alliance (CSGA)

There are two new blogs in the right sidebar list of member blogs. Both are products of the California State Genealogical Alliance (CSGA) and some of the blog authors are members of the California Genealogical Society.

First is the CSGA Blog, providing information that impacts California genealogy. Among the team of bloggers are CGS members Sheri Fenley, Cat Nielsen and Cath Trindle.

The CSGA Blog will cover the following types of topics:
  • Legislative issues affecting California genealogists
  • California projects including the CSGA–FamilySearch partnership, the California Online Research Aid, the California Wiki on FamilySearch, and many individual society projects throughout the state
  • California societies, websites, repositories, online materials and events
Other members of the CSGA blog team are: Gena Philbert-Ortega and newcomers Junel Davidsen, CGSM.

The second blog,  Copyright Issues for the 21st Century Genealogical Community (CSGAcopyright), is authored by Cath Madden Trindle and is part of a continuing effort by the Alliance to help gen societies understand copyright issues. The CSGAcopyright blog discusses copyright law, provides links and feeds to other copyright web sites, and will highlight blog postings on other sites.

The California State Genealogical Alliance (CSGA) was founded in 1982 and links genealogical societies and individuals throughout California who are interested in coordination and communication between societies as well as preservation of California’s rich genealogical history. The California Genealogical Society is a member of the Alliance.
