Goal no.2 for 2011 – start a genealogy blog

Instead of simply thinking about, it I have decided to jump in with both feet and start a blog about my genealogy adventure.

I began this adventure many years ago when quizzing older relatives about where and how they used to live but never became serious about it until recently. I have a local cemetery tour in Nov 2009 to thank for being completely bitten by the genealogy bug, as I found the graves of my grandmother’s, (who is still alive at nearly 92), paternal grandparents. Unfortunately my grandmother was not well enough to join my father and I on the tour that day, but was thrilled to see photos of her grandparents’ graves, both of whom died before she could meet them.

That was over 12 months ago now, and since then I have tried to learn everything I can about how to research my ancestors. I have been quite scattered in my approach until now, but one of my 2 main goals, (along with posting regularly to this blog about my research progress), is to become focused in my research.

I hope in 12 months time to say I have accomplished these 2 goals.

  1. Congratulations on starting your blog and good luck in your research goals.
    Let’s see how we have both fared at the end of this year!

  2. Welcome to the world of blogging! I’m glad you did it. I find that my blog is one of the things that helps me stay (somewhat) focused. I look forward to reading more.

  3. Congratulations Tanya! I have no Australian relatives to follow and my family is very good at staying mumm on the past. Makes me think there might be some good scandals.

  4. Great to see you are getting started, whilst I have researched for 3 decades, blogging about it is a new thing for me this year. Look forward to see how you evolve. Congratulations
