The Calendar of Genealogy Events is a feature of this newsletter’s web site at http://calendar.eogn.com that lists all sorts of genealogy conferences, cruises, webcasts, and similar events of interest to genealogists. It has sections for every U.S. state, every Canadian province, and for a number of other countries.
I received an email message today from someone who was a bit dismayed that an event he cares about was not listed in the Calendar of Genealogy Events. Apparently, he did not realize that all information in the Calendar of Genealogy Events is contributed by users. Thinking perhaps that others were also not aware of how it works, I decided to write this short note.
The Calendar of Genealogy Events is a crowd-sourced collection of listings. All information within the Calendar is contributed by you or by people like you. If nobody supplies the information, the event will not be listed. If you spend five minutes adding information about an event you care about, and if someone else spends five minutes adding information about an event he or she cares about, and if dozens of other genealogists each spend about five minutes doing the same, the result is a great resource that benefits all of us.
As stated on the home page of the Calendar of Genealogy Events at http://calendar.eogn.com, “Want to add a new event listing? Go to the appropriate page and click on the tab near the top labeled edit this page.”
If you would like to add information about a genealogy-related event, please go to http://calendar.eogn.com to see if it is already listed. If not, please add the information yourself.
