Follow Friday: Follow Me While I Follow You!

Everyone want’s to be followed…Follow me on Twitter, Follow me on Facebook, and then Follow me on Blogger!

We Just want to be followed!

To participate in Follow Friday,  simply create a post in which you recommend another genealogy blogger, a specific blog post, a genealogy website or a genealogy resource.  Tell us why they are important to the genealogy community and why we should follow. (Geneabloggers)

I didn’t think I had anything to contribute to Follow Friday,  but then I thought about Debra Newton Carter of “In The Black and White Cross Cultural Genealogy Blog.
We have reason to believe that we are related by a common ancestor. This is what Debra posted to her blog:

I am led to believe that we are connected through our 2nd Cousin by marriage, Joseph Benjamin “Joe B.” Culley, and Ambrose Culley. After consulting with another Carter/Culley cousin, Michaud Robinson, we are led to believe that they were first cousins.

Ben and Ambrose must be first cousins. Their fathers, James and William Cully, were apprenticed on the same day and always lived close to each other. James and William might have had other siblings. There is an Eliza and Adam Cully who are close in age to them.

I have been researching the Cully family for at least seven years and have documentation upon documentation that I need to make sense of, which my new found cousin, Debra is very good at.  

I follow other blogs for one reason or another…I follow maybe because the blogger is researching and is an expert of a certain city, town, county, etc., such as Harlem + Bespoke which totally focuses on businesses, buildings, parks, people, etc of Harlem from a historical standpoint.  I like this blog because my mother was from Sugar Hill, Harlem, New York and I draw some of my information from some of the bloggers research.

I also like to follow Genealogy Tip of the Day by Michael John Neill because I can always learn some new tips to help me in my research and what to do with all of it.

What I have discovered is that none of us are out there or here on our own.  We need each other to make this thing called family research easier.  We all have information to share, so I say “Follow You! and Follow Me!”
