December Life Events

It has been far too long — three months!! — since I posted to this blog! It certainly is not due to a drop in interest in family history. I have been very busy and have so much to share, if I can only discipline myself to stop the research long enough to blog about it.

A New York cousin sends out a calendar each month which contains the life events of his ancestors. Taking inspiration from this, I plan to make a monthly post listing life events of our ancestors.
