A Great Big Thanks to all of my Viewers and Subscribers!
While I was away playing with our youngest grandchildren in Ocean City last week, I nearly lost track of how many of you were continuing to view this site. Looking back on the past 18 or so months since I started posting my genealogical stories and discussions, I can’t believe that the 10,000th viewer will visit my blog today. The shame is, I have no way of knowing or acknowledging who that person might be. But, if you’re the one or one of the 9,999 others who have read something I’ve written here, I’d just like to say “Thank You!”–You’ve helped change my life and have given me encouragement to continue on.
And, if you’re family who waited on me when I became pre-occupied in my zealousness “to get it all out in copy,” I apologize. Especially to my husband who wonders how I can sit for hours on end in front of a computer. For me, it’s just visiting with new friends, old friends, and even deceased family members who I never had the chance to meet–that is, until I got serious again and back into genealogical research.
And, especially to Maynard, my newly found Grand Uncle. We didn’t know until this Christmas when he read a blog post of mine that each other existed. He was amidst one of my brick walls that came tumbling down. I love him so for coming across country this spring so we could meet and get to know each other. And, it was quite extraordinary to learn that we had so many characteristics, behaviors, and interests in common.
Thanks everyone–it’s truly a great experience. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I and that you will continue to visit and offer your comments.
