It's hard to believe that I've been blogging for four years! Who'd of thunk it?
I'd like to thank everyone who has ever left a comment on the blog. Comments are a reinforcement that what I'm writing is of value to anyone besides myself. They are the icing on the cake! Thank you.
Thanks also to everyone who has taken an interest in what I write, those that subscribe via a feed-reader and those that visit the blog. I realize that many of my “new” readers may not have an interest in family history and that the main reason you've been reading is because of the traveling and the accompanying photographs. I'm glad you came along for the ride and hope that you'll stick around because The Journey will resume some day.
In the meantime there will be mostly family history type posts for the foreseeable future. The subject of the current series of posts is the biography of my Grandmother. There will soon be another series dealing with my Berlin ancestors - John and Susanna (Hoffman) Berlin - and the nearly 40 letters to and from and among their children during the Civil War era through the 1870s.
Last year was an amazing year for me as I traveled around the United States, through part of Canada and to Alaska. The last post of 2010 highlighted my favorite places and the first post of 2011 listed the top genealogy posts at kinexxions for last year.
It is sometimes interesting to look back to see some of the things written in previous years... usually a “year end” post was written that highlighted “the best” or “the favorites” of that year... 2007 – 2008 – hmm, looks like I didn't do a “round up” in 2009! So instead I'll point you toward a listing of the posts I've contributed to the Carnival of Genealogy.
Thanks for hanging around. It's been fun. And I hope to be around a bit longer...
