|My grandfather and just a few of his many children around 1919; my mother is front right, looking very biddable (which is not how she turned out!)|
What does a blogger do when cut off from the Internet for a few days? Why, she dreams up another blog, and that's just what I have done. Keeping up three blogs* might turn out to be like juggling and keeping three balls up in the air all at once--we'll see.
The new blog is called Remember; Family history, family stories. It seems to me that the blog format would be a good way to tell about our family stew and all its ingredients, and to share old family photos and explain what I know about them. Yes, I'm feeling a bit mortal, as my baby sister just passed a big birthday milestone and another one is speedily racketing toward me.
I hope to eventually link the people in the stories to a family tree, starting with Beez's parents and mine and working backwards. And, oops, Beez's real name might have to be revealed! I have plans to link to genealogical resources and to other family history blogs, both personal ones and how-to ones.
Speaking of how-to, my hope is that some of you might start a family history blog of your own, and that we can share ideas of how best to pass on the stories of where we came from and how we came to be.
