    Go Green, Write About Your Farmer Ancestors with the Blogger's Almanac

    "Farmer reading his farm paper"
    By George W. Ackerman, Coryell County, Texas, September 1931
    National Archives and Records Administration, Records of the Extension Service

    First, there was the Old Farmer's Almanac, a much-used favorite in farm familes for when-to-plant advice, as well as for "New, Useful, & Enertaining Matter." But if you are looking for ideas on what to write, instead of how to plant, The Genealogy and Family History Writer's Almanac might be more helpful today.

    The April Edition of The Blogger's Almanac features a week of green-inspired ideas for blogging about farming, gardening, household tips, and "going green."

    Share your Almanac-inspired stories and enter The Family Curator's contest to win a FREE copy of RootsMagic4 genealogy software. More details and guidelines at the Contest Page. Enter early and often; contest ends April 30, 2010.

    Because I know my grandfather was a gardener at least btw 1898 and 1900, and have a brief article about him to post at the end of summer, I've been "following" what might have been his gardening activities in 1898 with about a post each month, beginning last month. My most recent post about Henry's garden includes copies of two newspaper ads for seeds which he would have seen in the local paper. You can view the post at I hope lots of people respond to your invitation! Thanks.
