It has been 364 days since I last posted to this blog, and in 2013 I only had seven posts – six in the first four months of the year. So to anyone out there in the blogosphere that is still here and now reading this brand new post – thank you! I said I would keep blogging until it wasn’t fun anymore and, well, it started to not be fun anymore. But, I did a lot of research in the last two years. In the last few months, I’ve done a lot of writing. The combination of the two has created a lot of ideas, and suddenly the idea of blogging is fun again. So I’m back for the new year!
Some of the posts to come in the new year are:
- Updates to several previous posts based on new information that has been found. I have updates for Do You Have a Photo of My Great-Grandmother?, The Millers’ Tale, the Research Plan on finding my great-greats’ death dates, the story of the Sister Who Disappeared, and a few of my Surname Saturday posts
- An inspiring story about a group of my ancestors who fled religious persecution
- Adventures in DNA matching
- Some tips on using several resources that offer millions of digitized Polish records
- Several old postcards that offered new insights into my family history
- An fascinating example of a German Stammbuch – and how it told me a lot about the owner’s personality
- Tracing my traveling blacksmith ancestor throughout Poland
- 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks – I’ve decided to attempt to participate each week in Amy Johnson Crow’s 2015 Edition of the weekly 52 Ancestors Challenge
After a long break, I’m really looking forward to blogging again. I hope that you’ll be along for the ride next year!
