The South African Genealogist...Visit my Blog Spot. Blogging is sort of an online journal - a place where the Blog owner (that's me) gets to put across views, opinions, anecdotes etc. and where fellow Bloggers can comment or contribute information about related topics. My Blog has a genealogical flavour with a smattering of other things in there to keep us going. This is NOT a Family History mailing list and it is NOT there for assisting with the nuts and bolts of research. Rather it is a platform for expressing views and generally having fun. Come visit the BlogGenie.
