Printer-Friendly Articles and Other Blog Stuff

You asked for it, and I’ve finally been able to make it happen! Articles now have a link following them that leads to a printer-friendly version in the Ancestry.com Library. We actually started posting a few weeks ago, but it took a while to work out the kinks and of course, once we did the tool went down for a while so we weren’t able to post last week’s issue. But at any rate, the current newsletter is out there.

Blog Extras

When I post the newsletter each week, the items that had been posted through the week, typically get pushed off the main page. You can page backward in time by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page, that says, Next Page, or to see only those items that are not included in the newsletter, click on Blog Extras in the right sidebar. This section contains all of the posts that were made outside of the newsletter.

Feeds

If you’d like to receive notification when a post goes live, there are several free feedreaders you can use to pull in feeds when something is posted to the blog. A list of feedreaders is available at: http://www.addtoany.com/lists/feedreaders/.

Once downloaded, most feedreaders make it simple to “Add a Feed.” Just provide the location of the 24/7 Family History Circle blog, which is:

feed:http://blogs.ancestry.com/circle/?feed=rss2

Google Feeds

For those of you who use Google frequently, or who have it as their homepage, you can easily add a feed to to a personalized Google page. Doing so will allow you to see the most recent headlines of posts to this blog. You can find step-by-step instructions here.

Hope all of the dads out there (and everyone, for that matter) had an enjoyable Father’s Day weekend!

  1. That Add to Any site actually has a really neat button that seems to have everyone’s reader on it. You should use it to make subscribing easy. http://www.addtoany.com/webmasters/

    Also the RSS URL you listed in this entry won’t work in a lot of readers/browsers. You should edit the post so that the “feed:” part isn’t there.
