Happy 3rd Blogiversary to me!


Three years ago today I wrote a post: Pennsylvania Research for the Mark Family”. I had been traveling & researching in Pennsylvania and decided that was a good topic to take my first steps in blogging. I had very little idea of where I was headed. I didn't know anyone else who blogged about genealogy and wasn't sure if anyone would read what I had written.

Finding and joining Geneabloggers was super. I love reading other blogs, looking at the layouts of other pages and finding connections. ‘Meeting’ other bloggers has given me confidence and many new friends.


Thanks to my visitors, followers & friends! I love reading your comments. You inspire me to keep on posting. If you were here I'd offer you a cup a tea, a slice of cake & we could sit and have a nice chat. Till then we'll connect here, in cyberspace.

  2. Colleen, congratulations on three years! I'm with you on much of what you said in your post today. Genealogy blogs have become a vehicle to connect many like-minded people, and it has turned into a wonderful community--even if I can't take you up on your offer of tea and cake!

    I appreciate your posts, and wanted to let you know I just shared a link to one of your Mappy Monday posts in my county genealogical society's newsletter.
