Subscribing is easy

Ol' Myrt here has received emails from newbies who are unsure of how to subscribe to this free Internet-Genealogy Blog. Several had received a forwarded copy of a blog post, and are simply overwhelmed by the prospect of "RSS" (really simple syndication) technology.

If you know of a friend in this position, you might forward these directions to him.


RSS technology allows you to receive in one place numerous posts from various blogs and websites throughout the Internet. This is an improvement over having to go to each website to see if there is something new to read or explore. RSS feeds save you time and frustration over visiting a site each day that hasn't been updated for a week.

When Ol' Myrt here publishes a new posting at the Internet-Genealogy Blog site, the RSS technology you selected will send you a copy at the place you specify.

Methods to receive the RSS FEED (or blog entry) are varied, including your personalized pages at Google, My Yahoo, Bloglines, Newsgator, and most email software programs.

The easiest way to enter a subscription to the Internet-Genealogy Blog, is to visit http://blog.internet-genealogy.com and type your email address in the box on the upper right navigation bar. This will permit FeedBlitz to send you the updates on an immediate or daily basis directly to your email box.

More experienced online genealogists may click the "Posts" button, and select their blog reading preference.

Clicking "All Comments" allows one to subscribe using those alternate method to all the feedback postings by our DearREADERS.

You may even click to add this blog to your Technorati Favorites.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
Your friend in genealogy.
