This post was created in 2011, before we ever had G+, and well before I'd joined any Facebook groups for genealogy, so I'm putting it out there, now, in case I may have any new connections for whom this might be of interest!

Putting this one out there, again, in case you missed it. 
Wow! I cannot believe it's been almost 8 months since my last post! I have GOT to do better! I know what the problem is, though -- it's FACEBOOK. See, once upon a time, I used to share my research discoveries, and other genea...

I'm coming up on 30 years, and (sadly), I could have written this letter. If I'd felt like this in the early years, I'm sure I would have found another career. But, having to experience this, now, when I should be approaching a happy ending, is ripping me to shreds. Kudos, and empathy to the person who wrote this.

In the past year, I’ve uploaded my 23andme autosomal raw data to all Gedmatch admixture calculators, DNA Tribes and Family Tree DNA (where I have mtDNA results on file).  I sought out guidance on the accuracy of the tools tha...

Two years ago, in the wee hours of Christmas morning, my mom left this Earth to be with Jesus. I miss her so much! My daughters and I paid a visit to her grave on Christmas Eve, and adorned it in holiday style. Merry...

This is my first time re-blogging, so I hope I did it right. If I didn't, please send me a private message, so that I can make corrections!  Thanks!
I know I need to do a better job of keeping this blog up, and that is going to be one of my goals for 2016. When I created it, the purpose was to share information that would be of interest to genealogists, but which was not ...

Thanks for your comments, ladies. I know that part of our reason for blogging is so that our stories have a permanent place on the web, where future researchers will easily find them. That is NOT going to be the case with Facebook posts! Hopefully, people will realize this, and we will all get back to publishing our info and findings on the web. (This includes me!)
By the way, this post has already been viewed over 70 times, but there are only five comments (so far). That serves as a reminder that, though people may be reading, very few will comment (even when the poster asks them to)! :)

Blessings,
Renate

Wow. I just finished reading this lengthy, well-written essay on the history of Louisburg, the town of my ancestors; and I must say, it's left me feeling "some kind of way".  When I first began reading the article, I was grat...
