I'm also doing more of a go over then a do-over.  I'm looking for missing records and cleaning up sources.  I also want to add to my WikiTree profiles as I do this.

I hope you are feeling better!  Reading is a good thing to do when your not feeling well.  I'm working on putting together my blog planner as well.  I meant to get that done before the new year!! LOL

Introduction
I'm a homeschooling mom of 6 children.  I love the homesteading lifestyle and make video tutorials and vlogs at Homestead Acres on YouTube.  I also post often on my blog Homestead Acres and Google+ page for Homestead Acres.  Topics include homeschooling and homesteading life, canning, gardening, crochet, knitting and reviews of products I find helpful.  I love learning and sharing with others!

I also love genealogy and have been researching my family history for 20ish years.  I blog about this at Footsteps of the Past.

  • Laws & Lawes
  • Anderson & Andersson
