It all started when a Gene Meme posted by +Jill Ball was shared to the Geniaus blog. As I was answering the questions presented by Jill I became acutely aware that genealogists are passionate about blogging, collaboration and of course genealogy.
I then pondered whether we could in the spirit of all things genealogical and historical produce a blog, written daily by someone different everyday from across the globe. I floated the idea in the genealogical blogging arena. The response was positive and good, although I was somewhat disappointed that there was not more uptake. Never put off by a challenge I decided to proceed with the plan.
Initially the project was called Global Genealogy, then five months later, just before Christmas I received an email from a company in the United States that they were called Global Genealogy, so at the end of December this blog, Worldwide Genealogy ~ A Genealogical Collaboration was born.
