Well, I'm jumping into the world of blogging. After attending a terrific workshop at the Omaha Public Library by Susan Petersen (LongLostRelatives.net), I've decided to give it a whirl. We shall see how it goes. I hope to post about my genealogy research and my love of stitching, reading, and family.
I've just returned from ten days of research in Salt Lake City and have a mound of data to enter into my database. This year I spent the majority of my days verifying information gleaned from various undocumented sources found on the internet over the past couple of years.
Genealogy has changed so much in the 25 years that I've been digging. No more cranking through census films by the hour. Now everything is indexed on the internet and it's just a quick click of a mouse and it's all there in front of you. You don't even have to leave the house or plug the parking meeting. Heck, I do most of my searching in my jammies with a cup of coffee at 5:30 in the morning.
I'm hoping this little journey into blogging with be successful. Susan assured us that it would be easy peasy. We shall see.
