I read a post today from Down Home Genealogy (you can find it here) where Devry gave a recap of things that she had 'wished and hoped' for in 2018. Reading her post, it got me to thinking about how often I, and possibly you do it, too, simply forget to look at all the… Continue reading Genea Wishes for 2019
As I said last week, I'm trying to participate in Amy Johnson Crow's 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks blog challenge this year (if you'd like to read my original post, you can find it here).
