Happy New Year

Happy new year to all of my Blanton family cousins and my Geneablogger friends.  I truly appreciate those of you who have read and commented on my blog this year. 

I’m not one to make a bunch of New Year’s Resolutions, but I have a few in mind.  I have only made 31 posts to my blog this year and I will try to do better next year.  I am not a writer like many of the wonderful Geneabloggers.  I started this blog to give out more information about the families I am researching.  I’m not sure where I will go with my blog this year, but I’m hoping to get more of my family information on here.  I have the majority of it on my web site, but it doesn’t hurt to have it in two places.

I’m also hoping to join at least one of the nearby genealogical societies where many of my ancestors lived.  Now that I’m living nearby, it will be possible for me to attend their meetings.  I would also love to go to one of the genealogy conferences, but I’m not sure if I can make that happen this year.

Happy New Year everyone.  Here’s wishing that we all make some wonderful discoveries this year and break down some of those brick walls!


  1. Happy New Year, Debbie. That's a great resolution - to join your local genealogy society. You'll find it has lots of benefits in 2010, I hope.

  2. I've awarded you the "Happy 101 Award". You can read about it and pick it up here:

  3. Thanks everyone for your comments. I truly appreciate you taking the time to read and comment on my blog.

  4. Congratulations on your first blogoversary, Debbie! You seem to have already achieved quite a bit and I wish you the best of luck in your second year.
    We seem to have at least two things in common. I'm an educator too (though not retired) and I've been blogging just over a year. I find it interesting that a large numver of educators/ex educators seem to be geneablogging.
