At the conference I met so many new friends who like me are addicted to genealogy. Many of these people talked about their family history blogs and who they follow. I must admit that I felt kinda embarrassed because I don't follow ANY genealogical blogs and I sure as heck didn't have my own. Now I can officially say that I have my own!
Speaking of meeting new people, I did find another conference attendee who is related to me through the Inge line. Her name is Marlene Garrett Branson and she is the president of the Pittsburg Chapter. Talk about a small world!!!! She actually came by my office Monday and I showed her the Inge family genealogy that I have. She looked through it and was able to point out her ancestors for me. It amazes me that I can travel near and far and still find someone who is related to me or have roots in Pittsylvania County.
I am hoping to connect with other genealogists with this blog and gain some knowledge and insight. I also want to get other family members involved in the process so they can see how much time and energy it takes to trace our roots.
