I also have a blog called Seeing New England. Why not visit it, to get a feeling for the area.

It was a big step for me to add something to the side on my blog. When I asked Lindalee of Flipside if I could copy her image of the Dove of Peace, she said yes. (Picture is at the left.) But it was a week or more before I gathered the nerve to make a change to my home page.
While looking at blogs at a leisurely pace, I was quite surprised to see a post of mine in the Friday, December 18, 2009 issue of Shades of the Departed. A very belated "Thank you" goes to Footnote Maven and the individual who submitted my article. My article was The Best Christmas Gift -- DAR and genealogy related, of course. Thank you again. It always pays to read everything, even if you don't submit anything.
The day I posted my Tuesday Tombstone posting for two generations of Van Woerts buried in Oneonta, New York, I received a nice comment and email from a Van Woert cousin. Always very nice to make a connection like that.
Last month, I mentioned I was going to work on my photos, that meant scanning and copying to Find-A-Grave. I started off with a bang, then the Olympics came on. But I managed to do over 100, and will try to finish up in March.
Once again, Randy Seaver and I are cousins, this time through our Gates line. Update, found out yesterday, we also share the Sawtell line. And, Kathleen Brandt of a3genealogy was kind to do a Follow Friday, highlighting my above Gates article. Thank you Kathleen.
In closing, I have decided not to continue with my Looking Forward blog, mainly because I haven't given March any thought!
