Today marks the second year for Ginisology! It went by fast and so much in my family history took place in 2010.
I have only been researching and working on my family history for three years now, and actually, in reality only two years...I am not going to count 2010, because I really wasn't able to spend alot of time doing actual research on my family.
With the loss of my Oma, (Grandmother), Liselotte Haf, and my Beautiful mom within several months of each other, daily life, and grandchildren. . .blogging took a back seat. Needless to say, it was a very tough year for so many of us. It was very difficult to want to blog. Aside from that, in order to blog about our Ancestors and family history, one needs to have the information, history and the stories to document and share on ones blog.
My plan for 2011, God willing, is to really buckle down and do some serious researching, to discover and learn about my Ancestors and the lives they lived...then, I will be able to blog about our family history. To honor and keep their memories alive and to have it "written and noted" for future generations that may have an interest in knowing all about us.
I have come a long way since I first started my blogging journey. My reasons for doing my genealogy have become stronger and much more passionate and serious, I have set goals that I want to accomplish. I even created another blog, Remembering This Day in Our History that holds and creates a timeline of the birthdays', deaths', and anniversaries of my ancestors past. I had first seen this timeline/calendar idea over at Vickie's, On this date....blog and thought it was a wonderful way to learn and get to know our Ancestors, thank you Vickie for the inspiration!
I love reading ALL the wonderful genealogy blogs out there, I have learned so much from fellow bloggers who are so supportive and helpful, I could not have done it without you...and treasured friendships have been made...thank you. So, here's to buckling down and getting busy with my own family history and to blog for our family.
As I said in my Blogiversary post last year....
Thank you all for your help, support and friendships, here's to many more years to keeping up the search and posting about our journeys and about the Ancestors that brought us here.
And to me, the keeper of our memories...Happy Blogiversary Ginisology!
