One year ago to date...

  I just read my last post and was surprised to find it was from almost one year ago today.  Yep, I fell off the blogging bandwagon.  But, I have been doing a lot of research since then on my genealogy. I just have not been able to keep up with both research and blogging.  I have to admit that I am a disabled Veteran.  Sometimes I feel great and sometimes I am very sick.  I have many different medical problems from Epilepsy to Fibromyalgia, RSD and more.  I never know when a flare up will occur.  I make plans to do something and then sometimes can't keep those plans- even to myself.  There are many times when I make plans to speak with another researcher on the phone, and I don't even physically feel like talking on the phone.  And I have to cancel these calls.
  I also let myself become intimidated by all the genealogist who go to conferences, make trips to do research at court houses, etc., can afford the new cool scanners, afford to view webinars, etc.  These people did not mean to intimidate me, this is my own personal issue!  It was once brought to my attention that I am the type of person if I can't do something 200% then I won't do it at all.  And it's true, I am an all or nothing type of person.  And this is not productive for a person who has a lot of medical issues like me.  So, I need to work through this!
  I am going to try and keep up with my blog.  Even if I cannot blog about my genealogy research 200%! LOL  Hopefully, I will be able to make more genealogy connections with other researchers who share my Family Trees! 
  To those precious people who are my distant cousins that have become great friends with me and shared our genealogy information with each other- please don't give up on me! I am still alive! LOL  And to my future genealogy contacts, I look forward to talking with you!  Please look me up on Facebook- I am there sometimes, or email me   Talk with you soon!

  1. There are all types of genealogists and different avenues you can go in. You'll find your niche or something you are particularly good at. When I started blogging I found I loved writing about genealogy too.
