One year ago today, I started this blog to tell the stories of my ancestors. I wanted to take my ancestors "off the charts" and tell their individual stories. I wanted to share the results of my research with other members of my family. This process of blogging has made my research richer and more colorful than I could have ever imagined. My ancestors are no longer just dates and places, but people who led full lives.
So, if you are a real cousin or just a fellow blogger, thanks for reading my blog and encouraging me along the way. I look forward to sharing more ancestors and stories throughout another year.
