NEHGS Creates a New Blog of Resources for Family History

FGS member society, the New England Historic Genealogical Society has introduced a new blog, Vita Brevis, that will include short posts on research methods – applicable to a variety of genealogical subjects — as well as posts on results.
The blog will act as a resource for family history.

With the launch of Vita Brevis, NEHGS contributes to making the short life of the genealogist a happier and more productive one. Drawing upon NEHGS’s 169 years of experience in exploring the lives of American families and their unique place in history, the blog offers all the expertise of the staff of the nation’s founding genealogical society, and the collaboration of some of genealogy’s most distinguished writers and scholars.

Vita Brevis will offer frequent postings by NEHGS staff, with rich image illustrations and comments from readers. The blog’s entries will simultaneously be posted to the organization’s popular Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/nehgs, where thousands follow the activities of NEHGS. Many will also be posted to the Society’s Twitter feed at @AncestorExperts. Built on the WordPress platform, the blog’s first header features a detail adapted from the Fox family tree, “Genealogy of the Fox Family of Cornwall,” printed by Standidge & Co. Litho., London, 1840 and held in the NEHGS Collection.
