Beginnings

This entry marks my first done in a blog format, so I beg the reader to bear with me as I gain knowledge of the ins and outs of blogging. You would think as much time as I spend on a computer that this would be a format into which I had ventured years ago. I guess I tend to be a voyeur and read the blogs of others, rather than write one in my own right.

I am starting this blog for me and for you. This will serve to document my search for my mother's family. It will also serve as a source for up-to-date information for family members, a source for teaching and knowledge for those using DNA in genealogical research as well as other genealogical techniques, and perhaps just a source of entertainment for the curious.

So then, let the ride begin...

  7. Hi Michael, just getting back to my blog, and fell into yours. I can't wait to read through them all. I'm just getting started in my German research. I have two families to search for - Adams and Noetzel/Ghensheit. Hoping to learn something to help me learn the ins and outs of German research as well as enjoy the stories. If you're curious, my blog is http://RoyalGenealogist.blogspot.com I would welcome your comments and suggestions.

  8. Your name drew me to investigate further because I am researching in IN. Also I have had my DNA report but I haven't used much of the info yet. Looking forward to following your blog and learning more.

  14. Just over three years after your first post I am beginning to read your journey. I am hoping in that three years you've gotten the answers you started out seeking and not too many surprises. Although as a family genealogist myself it is usually fun if one or two sneak in.
