Three Years of Blogging!
Last year, I started posting Surname Saturday posts, where I shared my ancestry from a particular immigrant ancestor down through time to me. However, I get bogged down in the details of these posts, which take a lot of time to prepare.
I feel that I need to organize my genealogical treasures and get inspired to blog, even if it's a short post. I certainly have enough photographs to have a Wordless Wednesday post every week...
Instead of sharing the top posts viewed in the last year, I would like to share some of my favorite posts from this past year:
Kentucky ~ Looking for a Crack in the Brick Wall about my Kentucky ancestors.
Greeley Plot Card at Graceland Cemetery about the information I found by paying five dollars to Graceland Cemetery in Chicago for a cemetery plot card.
Samuel Greele's Fourth Wife ~ Solving a Mystery (which followed Samuel Greele's Wives) about finding the death date and burial location for the last of my third great-grandfather's wives.
Tombstone Tuesday ~ Joseph Rose with photographs of a Matawan, New Jersey, cemetery we visited during our summer vacation and Sunday's Obituary ~ Joseph Rose, with a wonderfully descriptive 1877 obituary of another of my third great-grandfathers.
Wordless Wednesday ~ Hunter Sisters Circa 1909 which is a wonderful photo I received from a second cousin of mine. Be sure to note the update provided by my mother and click on the link to read the story behind the photo.
Tuesday's Tip ~ Scotland, Births, Baptisms, and Marriages about what I found at FamilySearch.org that helped me go back a couple of generations in several of my Scottish lines.
Looking back at what I did this year (even though it hasn't been much in the past two months), is pretty inspiring. I plan to continue sharing my family history a few blog posts at a time.
Thank you for reading!
