Geneabloggers, in their weekly list of events, notes that we are celebrating our third blogiversary today. This surprised me at first, but I quickly realized how that determination was made.
I began blogging in May of 2002, and while it has gone through several name changes over those 8 years, that blog still exists. Its current focus is my ongoing attempts at writing and publishing poetry and fiction.
On April 16, 2007 I began actively blogging about genealogy, and soon after discovered the geneablogging community. Approximately August 12, 2007 I created this space for my genealogy-related posts. In the process I moved a few posts from prior to April 16th I felt belonged. I've long been interested in my family history, but I hadn't yet been bitten by the research bug.
February 28, 2007 was the 100th birthday of my grandfather, Martin Deutsch (1907-1991).
