Introduction -- New Kid on the Block
My blog was created back in the summer of 2009, but I didn't write anything...writers block so early in the game. Even before that date, I wrote a couple of guest blogs for Steve Danko in 2006 and 2007, so I already knew how much fun it was to write them. Cheryl Fleming Palmer also received a few. However, I am not a writer, and rather enjoyed having my work corrected by Steve and Cheryl. Here I am on my own, it is a little scary. I at least warned you of my writing capabilities.
Most of my pieces will be from what I experienced through the hobby of genealogy. Not a whole lot about my immediate family as most are deceased such as parents, grandparents and an aunt. As a person who moved 17 different times, from CT to CA to MA to VA to MA to VA to MA, and went to 4 different 4th grades (CA, 2 in CT and 1 in Lexington, MA), I am not lucky to have any childhood friends, and only a few from high school (yes, I went 3 yrs. to one HS and graduated from an other, in a different town). So you see, I have often been the new kid on the block.
