Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2017!

I'm starting this year off with the obligatory New Year's baby photo, a picture of Someone Else's Ancestor. If you are kin to Raymond E. Lockwood [b. abt June 1888], please get in touch. It would make my year to return this photo to his family!

 Here we go again!

1 January 2017 marks the One Year Anniversary of this blog. 2016 was a great year for family history. New discoveries were made, "new" cousins were found, I learned some new skills. All good stuff.

As we get a fresh start this year here are a few of my genealogy resolutions:
  • continue with my grandfather's generation, and start pushing back to his parents' families and siblings [and their families]
  • put in more social history research time
  • scan and post more of my photo collections
  • start writing my personal history
  • continue adding to my genealogy skill set
  • create at least one printed photo book to preserve the pictures that I've scanned so far
  • print a copy of last year's blog posts
How about you? What are your plans for researching, preserving, and/or sharing your family history?
