Day One -MyFamily Blog
Yahoo! — No, not the browser; just an exclamation of excitement for a new addition for MyFamily.
Now, I can ‘chat’ to folks who view my “MyFamily” site(s) — and hopefully hear back from them.
No, this is not my first blog — have others;but this one will allow me to share bits of family research in a location where more people can view and “review” it.
Genealogy is an interesting quest — ongoing, and sometime elusive trying to solve age-old family mysteries…where did your ancestors come from?
That’s the first question; after the first few generations you are able to trace, the questions mount in number, and the pursuit of ‘knowledge’ about family members go through progressions — 1) how far back can our ancestors be traced. 2) What countries did they leave if they migrated to north America? 3) How many children did they have 4) Who were their neighbors 5) Who do I know from elementary/high school that may be distant kin? 6) Are we all distant kin?
