Two Year Anniversary

In April of 2007 a friend sent me a copy of the 1930 census sheet with my great-grandfather Barney Newmark, and told me he had found it online at HeritageQuest. Once I had a taste from the online buffet, I was unable to extricate myself. I am now a gluttonous fool.

On April 16th I started blogging about my research, so today marks the two year anniversary. There are a few earlier entries on this blog, but they are reprints from my personal blog where this blog got its start, and pre-date my research addiction. My family history has long interested me; that's how my friend knew my great grandfather's name. And I have been a blogger since 2002. I had no idea, however, what awaited my discovery.

Happy Blogiversary, John! Congratulations on 2 wonderful years of genealogy blogging. I've enjoyed reading all of your posts. I think I remember the first blog post of yours that I read. It was the one about the Dudelsack instrument. I was impressed with your writing then and I continue to be now. I've learned a lot from you too. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into your blog. It's greatly appreciated!
