Family Tree Magazine recently posted links to some of the best genealogy blogs available, calling it the Fab Forty.  As always, FTM does a great job categorizing the blogs so you can find a subject you are interested in quickly.  I recommend checking out some of the blogs and using the RSS feeds to easily keep track of new postings.  While you are looking at the listings, be sure to check out the FTM website.  They have lots of great information as well as an excellent blog!
