When I first decided to start a blog, I had 2 goals – to begin a conversation with people researching family in Russell County, Kentucky and specifically, to connect with “cousins” to collaborate with on research.

As I look at the amount of time I spend working on the blog, I find that I am spending less and less time working on my own research and more time writing for the blog, without a lot of feedback.

While I love being able to provide resources and “how to” information, that just wasn’t my original goal, so I’m going to hit the “pause” button for a bit and think about what I want to accomplish in my research and how much time I want to invest in the blog to accomplish that goal.

I don’t plan to ever take down the blog. I find myself using the links I’ve included for Russell County far more often than I thought I would. That may be the most organized part of my research process and I don’t want it to go away!

Continue to enjoy the free downloads and links to Russell County resources. And THANK YOU to those who stop by on a regular basis!
