This winter and spring, I have been transcribing and analyzing obituaries and funeral notices of as many of my ancestors that I can locate. They fit in well with the gravestone blog so that is where I have put them.
Everyone seems mesmerized by DNA. It doesn't seem that despite the best effort of those who do fine work in DNA research, people are not getting that they must do research on their ancestors. I am getting a lot of questions about my ancestors who may or may not have lived in other countries.
I refer them to my tree at Ancestry to see if they have a match to me. (https://www.ancestry.com/family-tree/tree/890183/)
Right now, I am writing a family history book for my descendants about my family. I find I am enjoying doing that and blogging is taking a "back seat" to that work.
I am impressed with my fellow bloggers who continue to put out well-documents, interesting and important blog posts. As I no longer travel or go to conferences by choice, my free time is spent doing things I love to do.
