It's My Blogiversary!


Wow! This blog is three years old already.  Where does the time go?

A little over three years ago I couldn't even tell you what a blog was. It was when I watched the movie Julie and Juliathat I learned about blogging. It looked kind of fun, but I had no idea what I would blog about.

Then I asked myself, "Self, do you think there any genealogy blogs out there?" Well you know I found my answer.

Since I have been blogging about genealogy I've connected with seven distant cousins who have shared photos, documents, and histories. Some one even contacted me to let me know about a family tree error. I got to looking at my records and noticed that particular error was corrected on paper about 25 years ago, but never made it to the computer! So yeah for genealogy blogging!

Now if I could just get everyone who is searching for my ancestors that lands on my blog to leave a comment or send me an email.  That would be awesome!

Just today I noticed that someone from Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire searched for my great-grandfather Thomas Joynes Smedley and landed here. I sure would like to talk to them!

Here's to finding more cousins through blogging!

  3. Congratulations on 3 years, Leslie Ann. I'm with you: I wish all those people who were searching for my relatives left comments, too. Maybe the person searching for your great-grandfather will come back again and then leave a message! Here's to another great year!
