I’ve been researching my family tree for a very long time and now I have enough information, resources, and time to create a blog dedicated to genealogy research and my family tree.
The goal of this website/blog is to document my family tree and family history. The purpose of this website/blog is to also share with you what I’m learning and have learned about researching family genealogy and history. There is a lot to learn and a lot of information out there, more information and more easily accessed information than at any time in our history. With all this information out there, it is now overwhelming to begin the search to trace your family roots. Hopefully, together we can help each other through the process.
I am not alone in creating this family history blog. I’ve found some fabulous long lost relatives (didn’t even know they existed until I started digging) and immediate family members who will be helping me out. So this is a team family effort and I’m excited about sharing what we’ve learned with you.
There are some challenges in creating a genealogy blog, especially with the free blogging tool, WordPress. I will be documenting my efforts on one of my other websites, Lorelle on WordPress, so you can follow along with how this develops.
So stay tuned for some exciting changes to this site and great information and resources!
