It’s been a little over a year since my last blog post. After I “paused” my blog, I decided to work on a family history book for my daughter-in-law. I worked on that book every spare moment I had until her birthday in July. And by then, I was pretty burnt out! So I took several months off completely, but I am back at my research now.

I have recently received emails from two “cousins” which got me back into 2 specific family lines. And, my husband and his cousin have volunteered to organize a family reunion this summer, so I’ll be doing research on their line as well. So I’ve got plenty to do!

Between those lines and spring gardening and a big crochet project that I work on in the evenings (oh yeah, plus my “real” job), I’ve determined that I need to be very purpose driven with whichever project I’m working on. So my goal for the blog is to post about once a week – most likely on my Russell County, Kentucky roots – to give a quick account of what I’m working on and how I’m organizing it. My husband’s line is 100% German, so I may occasionally post about German resources or surprises.

So please plan to stop by and see what I’m up to! If  you also have Russell County roots, drop me a line in the comments. I just might come across your family lines connected with mine!
