It's My Blogiversary ~ 2 Years and Counting!

Thank you to everyone who has stopped by to read my blog in the last two years! I am very grateful and humbled by your encouragement and support. The time has flown by so quickly and I am incredibly awed by my fellow bloggers who have been blogging much longer.

I have written 254 blog posts since I began my blog on June 20th, 2014. This means that I have averaged 2.4 posts a week. It's down from last year's statistics but I have been busy with my 2nd blog and the research into my biological family is heating up big time! Because of this I am not posting as frequently here as I would like but there is definitely room for improvement!

I have learned so much in the last year especially through Thomas MacEntee's Genealogy Do-Over. I have also learned a lot from my copy of "Evidence Explained, Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace 3rd Edition" by Elizabeth Shown Mills. I also reading several other books which I understand may have study groups so I need to pursue that avenue too. I have also met some great people through my blog and the genea-community as a whole. 

I am looking forward to the next year of Dawning Genealogy and I am researching some great stories in my collateral lines. I also want to write about some of my Quaker ancestors on my Dad's side. I have also accumulated quite a few wills and and I have been transcribing them for a new column I hope to start in August.  

Thank you again for stopping by! Here is a list of my top 15 posts from June 2015 to June 2016.

Take care,
