Summertime Update

A lot has changed in the last 6 months.  One thing is that I have retired from the GenWeb.  I have limited time and energy to spend now.  I have been working on my own genealogy lately.  I had let it fall by the wayside, spending almost all my free time in volunteer projects.  I still want to volunteer but need to work on my tree for a while.  I suppose this is the only change that matters here.  I need to match my time and energy to the project I choose.  

I have been working on catching up with citations of the sources I have.   I don't know that I will ever have that job done. 

Lately I have met a group of Brock researchers and have a cousin that has had his DNA done.  I know a lot more than I did about this family, and I am having to rethink the line.  I believe early mistakes were made.  I have been forced to wonder if all the data online from my line is based on a wrong person.  It needs a lot more work.  Lucky for me, this sounds fun.  

I'm giving some thought to joining GenealogyWise.  I don't want to over-join.  I have cut out the things I was not using and am considering how to use the ones I have kept more effectively.

All in all it seems to be turning into the year of change.  I got pushed into changing in the beginning.  Now it is becoming so much more than just physical changes.  

November 2018 Will Be The 100th Anniversary of WWI

This year, in November, we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of World War I., though, celebrate is not really the word I think of when...
