Getting Started

     Time is running out for many of my planned writing projects ( I just had a big birthday). It is already 2015, and I have discovered genealogy blogs.  Maybe I have just enough time to share my genealogy discoveries with cousins near and far, geographically as well as biologically, through a blog just for them, other relatives, and especially my grandchildren.

    Many blogs give helpful hints, suggestions, and resource guidance to their readers.  This is not my intention since I am a novice genealogist. However, I am the oldest cousin on both my mother and father's sides of the family tree.  Of course, this gives me a familial advantage.  I have memories many of my cousins do not share.  I grew up surrounded by great aunts and uncles, second cousins, and other extended family. Some of these cousins ( not to mention my grandchildren) did not have that same experience.  So, I have appointed myself family historian.  I am very interested in this task and anxious to share my discoveries. So, this blog is for my family that they might know from where they came.  If anyone else finds the desire to follow my mumblings, I would be thrilled.  Eventually, I plan to delve into my husband's family and that of my grandchildren's other grandparents.

     I have a few other interests such as gardening, travel, and reading.  Don't be surprised to find a page or two here and there on these topics as well as some random thoughts and other useless information.

     As I said before, this blog is for my family.  I hope you enjoy it.  If you have any specific questions, please contact me. I will be happy to try to answer your questions, or I might even research it for you.  If at anytime, you feel I have made a mistake, contact me so I can correct the information.

Your self appointed family historian,
