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.
