Last December 2010
Today, I read a few pages of chapter #3 of the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass. I have the holiday fever, so I feel as though I have ADHD right now.
I started working on the PowerPoint Presentation for my Genealogy Society meeting in January 2012. I will be discussing Blogging Your Family History. I have made an agreement with myself, since I am a recovering procrastinator to do at least 2 slides a day, so by the time my presentation date, it will be complete.
I began scanning some of the old pictures I want to use for my presentation, as I would like to make a few collages. When my computer crashed, I lost all of those needed photo’s, so of course, I am also backing up.
I am also going to be moving my Blogger account to WordPress, as I have been seeing that individual bloggers on Blogger have been locked out of their accounts, and I am worried that it could happen to me.
I received a book in the mail, Postcard History Series, Worcester by Frank J. Morrill, William O. Hultgren, and Eric J. Salomonsson. I plan on posting on my other blog, The Cully Family: An African American Legacy, a few of the postcards that I feel are in relation to my ancestors.
Before I go, I must do a little tooting because I made it in Randy Seavers, Genea-Musing: Best of the Genea-blogs mentions. Randy quoted “Hundreds of genealogy and family history bloggers write thousands of posts every week about their research, their families, and their interests. I appreciate each one of them and their efforts.
My criteria for “Best of …” are pretty simple – I pick posts that advance knowledge about genealogy and family history, address current genealogy issues, provide personal family history, are funny or are poignant. I don’t list posts destined for the genealogy carnivals, or other meme submissions (but I do include summaries of them), or my own posts.” “
So with this, I am so honored to have a place this week on Randy Seavers list. I am learning so much from all of you that blog your family research, and those that help many of us to stay updated. Again, Thank you Randy!!!
