Happy New Year 2015!

Happy New Year!

Today, the first day of 2015, I am not even going to mention last year’s resolutions. Since I have done so poorly with them I do not see any point in bringing up the same old unfinished goals yet another year.

I will only say that genealogical organization is an ongoing process and a struggle for me. I am beginning to believe that I will never be organized to the point I hope and expect.

Ditto for the goal of digitizing photos and documents.

However, one of my project goals will soon be realized. Finally! This project has been on my to-do list for several years now and I finally took the bull by the horns, taking the easy way out by having someone else do it. I will not say much about this project right now but will write about it later, after I receive the finished product. I will just say that it involves old home movies…

New Year PCSo on this day, the first day of 2015, I am going to say farewell to 2014 and look back at the year by listing some of my favorite 2014 blog posts, followed by reader’s favorites.

My favorites represent a compilation of my research put into writing, which fulfills several of my long-term goals–to research, organize, and write the results. Some posts generated a lot of interest and I learned something from my readers’ knowledge and help.
