Make this Saturday "Irish surname Saturday"

Genealogy bloggers who are also Twitter users have begun to participate in Surname Saturday, thanks to the inspiration and clear how-to directions from Thomas MacEntee, author of the very popular and helpful GeneaBloggers blog (among others).

This Saturday leaves us one day left before the deadline for the upcoming 13th edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture whose theme is "Irish names". If you've got Irish surnames or first names in your family, or you'd like to share a story about someone else's, why not join us for a little Surname Saturday fun the Irish way.

Write a blog post about Irish names and tweet about your article using the #surname hashtag using your Twitter account. Don't know the difference between a tweet and a hashtag? Read Thomas' Examiner article on Twitter or just scoot right on over to his Surname Saturday explanation for details. Hope you'll join us!
