Home sweet Home

Well gang,
We've moved...and yes it snowed! Again.  I keep saying I will not move in the winter! HA!  But we're here in our cozy little house on Iris Lane.  :)  The kids and I love it!  The genealogy all made it here safely.  My great idea for my series of posts didn't turn out at well as I wanted.  Story of my life.  I did take the time to purge a lot of excess paper that I didn't need and I've been busy digitizing a lot of things that aren't original copies and keeping digital files instead of paper files.

So I'm on my new genealogy journey.  I'm working on my Daughters of the American Revolution application.  Mom and I attended our first meeting last weekend and I was amazed at the projects and community involvement of the society at a national and a local level!  We've been busy gathering our materials we have on hand and searching for our supporting documentation for our applications.  More to come here.

I'm on facebook now and you can find me at www.facebook.com/confessionsofageneaholic.com  I'll be updating there more informally.  I'll also be adding photos, etc.  I'm still working on the video entries.  Blogger won't allow me to upload a video over a certain size...but I may be able to add those to Facebook.  I'll keep you all updated.

I'm happy that warmer weather has returned to Norther Lower Michigan!  Time to get back out in the cemeteries and spur on the genealogy research.  It makes it even better, now my desk is in front of my slider (the non-opening side) so I have a huge window to look out when I'm working at my desk.

I'm looking forward to hearing about your genealogy projects this year.  Feel free to share in the comments what you are working on!

Happy Hunting.
