Thank you all!

I am overwhelmed and humbled! You all have been very kind to me and I really appreciate it. I have received several nice and fun comments welcoming me to this blogging world, as well as some that have provided insight and reminded me what makes genealogists so special!

I have corrected my blog problems with the assistance of Thomas, know that I am not the only one with ornaments like these they hold dear, and received a note from the one who inspired me to to start a blog in the first place.

I am lucky to be in the vicinty of Willard Library, located in Evansville, Indiana, known famously for its "Grey Lady Ghost" who brings visitors from around the nation every October. Lyn Martin is in charge of the genealogy department and with a good crew of librarians has developed a large collection on the 2nd floor. Every June they hold "Midnight Madness" for 5 days and literally keep the library open until midnight! The days are filled with sessions covering all aspects of genealogy and I learn much every year.

This year I attended a session held by Brenda Jerome Joyce, CG, on Creating Your Own Blog. I attended in curiosity, but became more interested as she demonstrated with her own blog and others. You know her through her blog, Western Kentucky Genealogy Blog, listed on the Geneabloggers blog roll. So, here we are, and I am glad I started.

Again, I thank you, and I wish you a blessed holiday season.

I am so glad your blog feed is up and running now - and you are correct, not only are genealogists a special breed, but genealogy bloggers even more so! We know how to have fun but we also take our genealogy research seriously!

I have visited the Willard Library a number of times (a few years ago) and found something of value every time! Lucky you!

Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I'm fairly new, as well, and have found it most stimulating, especially the Daily Themes.

Keeping telling your ancestor stories!
