Call for Guest Bloggers -- Ethnic Communities Found Within the United States -- Genealogy/Family History Research into!

Source: http://allthingslearning.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/blogging-guest-bloggers-welcome.jpg
Upfront with NGS is considering a series of blog posts focusing on “ethnic” research.  The initial primary focus is research for ethnic communities found within the United States though we hope to expand the list of topics in the near future to be more global.

We would like to use a format of Top XX tips or Top XX resources for XX research.

Initially we would like to publish posts about the following topics:
·    Jewish Genealogy (גניאלוגיה יהודית)
·    Native American Genealogy
·    African American Genealogy
·    French-Canadians who migrated down from Canada (Généalogie Canadienne-Française)
·    Hispanic Genealogy (Genealogía Hispana)
·    any other ethnic group for which research into presents special genealogy research challenges

If you consider yourself an expert on one or more of these topics, please e-mail us at UpFront@ngsgenealogy.org with a proposed blog post or hyperlinks to previously written material on the topic which you would like to consider!

Requirements include:
·    Minimum length of 600 words.  Depending on length, a post might become a series such as with the DNA series by Roberta Estes earlier this year.
·    Includes at least one graphic.
·    No remuneration is provided.
·    Author is given a 50 word byline + one hyperlink (at the end of the post).

Upfront with NGS is always looking for quality submissions by “guest bloggers.”  Topics need to be about a genealogy (family history) related or a relatable topic. Broad appeal is preferable to very narrow/specific topics. Are you an expert or passionate about something genealogical? If so, please submit a proposal. If it’s relevant to genealogy researchers, it will be considered. Some topic suggestions include: free and/or large databases, research techniques, new technology, resources, DNA testing, etc.
