Whoops! I Forgot My Blogiversary :) --How Did I Get Here? My Amazing Genealogy Journey

Yup. That was me yesterday forgetting my blogiversary. LOL We'll just have to celebrate a day late. It's been a beautiful journey so far. In these last six years, I've made cousin connections and learned so much about my own family history. I've had the pleasure of being part of a wonderful online community of fellow genealogists and family historians. Many thanks going out to all those who have helped me on my journey. I may not be posting as often as I used to but I will continue to post. I hope you will continue to stop by from time to time to see what I've discovered.  While you're here, let's celebrate with some cupcakes.

Whoops! I Forgot My Blogiversary :) --How Did I Get Here? My Amazing Genealogy Journey

Mmmh Yummy!

My most popular post of the year was somewhat of a fluke. Many of you probably followed April the giraffe and the birth of her baby. My Daughter's Field Trip: Animal Adventure --Harpursville, NY was a post I shared back in June 2015. It featured pictures from my daughter's class trip to the place where April calls home. 

Other posts that continue to be popular are ones I've shared about my DNA results.

For those of you who might happen to have ancestors who were slaves in New Hanover County, NC, you should take a look at the New Hanover County Register of deeds website. Here's a post I shared in February 2016 that highlighted a discovery I made using this resource.

What A Great Resource! Slave Deeds Index At The New Hanover County Register Of Deeds .

If you happen to come across the names of enslaved people while researching estate records and wills, please get involved in the Slave Name Roll Project.

The project was originally maintained on Schalene Dagutis's blog, Tangled Roots and Trees but now it has it's own blog. You can learn more about the project here. The following is a post I shared regarding the names of slaves I found in the estate record of Col. Peter Gustavus Evans.

Some of my favorite posts have been ones that share details about the lives of my family who came from Morehead City, NC. The following pieces I wrote when I first began blogging, so if you are new here you can check them out and see how my blog journey began. 

Thank you everyone for your continued support!


  1. Happy Blogaversary! I enjoyed reading some of your old posts and look forward to your new ones! Wish I could reach in and take one of those cupcakes!
