A New Year – 2016

It’s been a long time since I blogged. Holidays, time with kids, etc. We also painted the office, and I have intended to get in there and get all my genealogy stuff organized . . . but I haven’t gotten to it.

I had some goals for the winter break, in addition to the office painting/organizing project. I was going to organize my computer files, naming all my genealogy related items with a consistent naming pattern, and putting everything into folders by family group. I haven’t gotten around to doing that yet either.

I thought 2016 would be the perfect year for the Genealogy Do-Over. There’s a book now, which I’m sure is super helpful. (This isn’t an affiliate link. My blog isn’t monetized.) But, I’m not ready yet.

I worked so hard to get 3-4 generations back on each of my lines and each of Todd’s lines, to get that information written up and published here. I think I got a bit burned out! I’ve enjoyed seeing my daily statistics though, and I know that there are people out there interested in the information. That is really what I wanted for my blog – a way to get the information out there for people connected to our family trees. And hopefully hear back from people who have information to add to mine.

I’ve decided to start working onĀ completing the 4th and 5th generations back on each line. That is a LOT of family groups to research. And, with them being so far back, it’s so hard to find records to verify the information found on trees on Ancestry, or the information that has been passed down to me. So it will be slow going, but I’m trying to get back at it.

Hope your 2016 is off to a great start, and hopefully you’ll be seeing more content here soon.

  1. I have been meaning to contact you for quite some time to let you know how informative I find your posts. Your recent life stories of the direct lineage couples in both your and your husband’s families are chock full of details. Very nicely done!
