Family History Through the Alphabet – Diigo

For 26 weeks I will take you on a family history journey through the alphabet, one letter at a time.  I have decided that each post will be educational in nature, focusing on topics related to resources, methodology, tools, etc.  Although the challenge is complete, there are still some people who are finishing up and Alona, the host, is encouraging others to participate anyway.  Additional information on the challenge, can be found at Take the ‘Family History Through the Alphabet’ Challenge


dDiigo is a social bookmarking tool with many additional features useful to researchers.  I use Diigo as the application of choice for maintaining my genealogy resource toolkit.  I have collected a variety of links to resources related to genealogy research, such as online record collections; out-of-copyright books that have been digitized; general information about records, repositories, and research methodology; specific places I’m researching; genealogical, historical, and lineage societies; special topics (military, women, cemetery, etc.); and much more.  Diigo keeps track of the things I’ve found, and more importantly, helps me find them later when I need them, since I can organize everything into lists and tag each item with keywords.
