~It's My 3rd Blogiversary!~

It's hard to believe it's been 3 years since I started Spirits of The Old, harder yet to believe that I have kept at it! This last year I have slowed down a bit in my posting for a number of reasons, the loss of my dad, a new job, and of course the brick walls, But I have also been busy trying to organize all my paper work ( mountains, drawers, piles eeek) following "The Organized Genealogist" on Facebook is giving me wonderful motivation to get this done!

Three years ago when I started my blog I had a photo of my maternal grandparents, some of my parents and could tell you the names of my Maternal Great grandparents, and sadly nothing about my Paternal Grandparents not even their names!

Today I have photos of my 3rd Great Grandparents ( Maternal) photos of Great Great Uncles and Aunts, cousins and distant relatives. Names~ oh I have so many names and I discovered the names of my dad's birth parents!!  ( I actually have family now)  there are now copies of Wills and documents, newspaper articles the list is long of the discoveries I have made. I have been blessed with so many family members who I never knew existed finding my blog and contacting me, they have been wonderful to share their information, documentation  and photos, Thank you Cousins!!! I love you all.

 I'm looking forward to many more years of blogging ~ discovering ~and watching my family tree grow.
