Brenda Dougall Meriman has a blog!

Yes, that's right, Professional Genealogist and author Brenda Dougall Merriman has a blog! 've missed out on Brenda's blog for, oh, only about three years by the looks of it. But thanks to the whole concept of six-degrees-of-separation, I'm finally in the know!

The main reason of the blog is to share her ongoing research of her own family tree, and not all of it is strictly Canadian. Many of the Canadian resources she has consulted or books she has written or reviewed would be extremely helpful to others in their own research. One example is her book, Genealogical Standards of Evidence: A Guide for Family Historians (to be published by Dundurn Press in Feb 2010 and which appears to be a continuation of her work, About Genealogical Standards of Evidence: A Guide for Genealogists.) Brenda epitomizes proper citation of sources and includes footnotes wherever necessary on her site. I look forward to having a chance to read more!

Very kind of you to mention, Elyse. Thanks! The Dundurn book is published now but I wish they'd show me a copy! It was a hard summer of revision .. as you say, it's a new version of the previous publication by OGS which has partnered with Dundurn.
