No, I have NOT abandoned my beloved blog…
And, no, I haven’t stopped doing genealogy…..
I’ve just been so busy helping others with their projects I’ve been neglecting mine. :-(
A couple of years ago, a professional genealogist I greatly admire told me to be careful, because it could happen to me….no time for MY personal research. I scoffed at the idea, but… here it is January 2014 and I haven’t thought about my own work since I can’t remember when (apparently not since August, the date of my last blog post – sigh).
Don’t get me wrong…… I LOVE what I’m doing! People have such interesting ancestors! And provocative brick walls which are the stuff of a genealogist’s dreams Lately, I’ve been particularly engrossed in helping a client with his Mayflower Society membership application. We’ve been at it for a while and are one female ancestor’s parentage away from proving his connection to the Mayflower, and opening up a whole new Mayflower lineage. Exciting…………!!!
Regarding my personal research, I’m considering taking a trip to England next December, and I’m hoping that at least 75% of my time there can be devoted to researching my Buckinghamshire ancestors. In order to pull that off of course, I know I need to go a LOT of advanced planning, which will no doubt jump start the return to thinking (and writing) about my own family.
So, stay tuned…..
