Love the blog and Facebook page for the Illinois State Genealogical Society and very happy to be a member of ISGS. This is an an example of what every society should have available on Facebook. Check it out at http://www.facebook.com/ILGenSoc#!/ILGenSoc?v=wall. The ISGS blog is located at http://ilgensoc.blogspot.com/ I wish other societies I belonged to had a blog and that one society I belonged that has a blog actually kept the blog up to date!
I am hoping to be in Illinois in October perhaps I can actually attend the ISGS Conference. Love to meet the folks in the society. I haven't been in Illinois in the fall in about 22 years - October is cold if I recall. Might need to buy a coat!
The ISGS blog mentioned that the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum also has a blog. I have spent many an hour at the library taking advantage of the microfilm and books housed there. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum blog can be viewed at http://www.alplm.org/blog/.
