Surname Saturday: Word Mosaic

by Tonia Kendrick on November 21, 2009 in And More

Surname Word MosaicWord Mosaics have been popping up in the geneablogger community lately as a fun way to showcase the surnames one is researching.  Thanks to Sandra at I Never Knew My Father for inspiring me to finally create my own.

I thought this would be a good way to introduce my new blog series:  Surname Saturday.  I’ve been reading excellent Surname Saturday posts at Ancestories for a while and had the idea on my back burner.  The idea has caught on with others, so I’m going to throw my hat in the ring as well.

I’ve written about surnames in the past (obviously – this IS a genealogy blog, after all).   Surname Saturday will help keep me accountable with a regular blogging theme.  I may not post every Saturday, but it will be a regular feature of this blog.  Stop by next Saturday to read about the Kendricks.

This post is the first of an ongoing series focusing on specific surnames. To see all posts in the series, click here.

Your mosaic came out great. I’m glad you tried it. Now I need to take on the task of posting more on my surnames even if It’s not every Saturday.

Thanks! That’s the hard part, isn’t it? I like doing the Surname Saturday posts, but they are a lot of work.

Very nice! I also like how you put a link at the end to all of your Surname Saturday posts! Very well done.

Your mosaic came out great. I’ve played around with it a little but with so few surnames, I always think mine looks silly so haven’t posted one, yet.
