Leaves of My Family Tree Blogiversary

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!!


Answer Your Cat’s Question Day


Today is Answer Your Cat’s Question Day!  Cats, in my experience, always have a question!  They are however most definitely in charge!

I have been a cat lover all of my life.  I have been lucky enough to have four cats that shared large portions of my life.  They are all gone now but I have fond memories of them.  I think that the Cat Rules to live by over at WellCat.com is well worth checking out.

Inauguration Day

Today is Inauguration Day in the United States!  Whatever your political views, today is the day that we start a new term of office for our President.  We believe in the Constitution of the United States and democratically elected leaders.

The presidency is not just the person who currently occupies the office but the endurance of the democratic process.  Just during my lifetime we have peacefully changed our leaders because the majority of the country selected a different person to lead our country.  The President is the president of all the people in the United States not just those who elected him.

As Americans it is not only in our best interests to hope that the President and the other elected leaders do well in their jobs and do what is best for our country but it is our duty as citizens to do everything we can to aid in the success of their efforts.  Then, those who didn’t like this president will have a chance to elect one they do like!  That is the beauty of the American system of Democracy.

May God Bless America and all its leaders!
