Happy 8th Anniversary!


Eight years ago today I attended a class at the California Genealogical Society on starting a blog. It was great fun and I have enjoyed these past eight years.

I have not written as much on this blog. It has limited subject matter, being the ancestors of my maternal grandmother. I have another blog that covers the rest of my family and my husband's family, and I tend to make more posts there.

Over the past year, I have written 21 posts. Several of them got great reception. Here are the five with the most views:

Lancaster Family in Rockwall County, Texas

52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks – Week 30: Colorful – Earliest Color Photo in the Johnston Family

52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks – Week 19: Mother’s Day

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Relatives With Facial Hair

I am continuing the 52 Ancestors meme this coming year and hope to write a few more for this blog.
