There was a terrible tragedy at Boston Marathon! Bombs were exploded near the finish line at about the four mark of the marathon. My prayers are with the victims, their families, the survivors and their families, the police, firefighters, and other first responders!

Well, here it is already the middle of March and unfortunately I am not very far along on my research plans for the year. However, I am beginning to get stuff caught up so hopefully, I will be able to get some research done soon.
I have managed to get some things accomplished in the past couple of months though. I started by going back to the software that let’s me get the most accomplished in the smallest amount of time. I have returned to The Master Genealogist. I have also used John Cardinal’s Second Site software to publish my family history to the website. I have tried most of the other software and the various methods for putting my genealogy on the internet and I keep coming back to the combo of The Master Genealogist with second Site! There must be a reason I keep returning!! I am trying to remember those reasons and not let myself be distracted into trying something else again!!
I have also setup a genealogy area in my bedroom. I do use this area when I work at home too, but I am getting my genealogy organized! I am still working on my paperless genealogist quest. I am slowly getting all my genealogy documents, photos, and newspaper clippings digitized. Therefore, my genealogy area doesn’t have a lot of storage area and instead focus on being a pretty, organized, functional area for using my laptop with an external monitor attached which doubles as a TV for when I am not transcribing and want to watch TV while I work at my computer. I really love my new genealogy area. It is coming together wonderfully.
More updates to come as I get my genealogy research updated!!

Today is my third blogiversary!!
I began my genealogy research over twenty years ago now. There have been periods of days, weeks, or even months when I haven’t done any genealogy research but I always seem to keep coming back to genealogy to find just a little more information on those who have gone before me.
I have had a website to show my genealogy for the vast majority of the time I have been doing genealogy. At first, I used direct coding to get my website online. Later, I tried various online websites and software programs to create my website. I used those methods to both display my actual genealogy information and to share my discoveries and to discuss how I found them.
Then in 2010, I discovered WordPress! I enjoy using WordPress to create my website. It makes it much easier to share my genealogy discoveries and my joy at the discoveries.
I hope that my blog readers have enjoyed reading my blog for the past three years as much as I have enjoyed writing them! More to visit come in the next year!!
Today is National Pie Day! If anyone who knows me wants to celebrate this day by making a pie, I love Chocolate Pie! You could share you know….
