I guess people are pretty surprised when they hit the first anniversary of their blog. I know I am. Somehow I also managed to make this my 100th post.
I spent 2010 tracking various family lines back to the first immigrant to America, or a dead end, whichever came first. I did pretty good, but there were a few lines with real mysteries I really wanted to solve, the Murray and the Stewart lines in particular. Near the end of 2010, I wound down the comprehensive research and began to narrow my efforts. I decided to focus on Murray and to make every effort to add enough pieces to the puzzle that the story would be much clearer. I may mix in a small amount of time on other lines to keep burnout at bay, but I plan to keep Murray front and center.
I can't help but wonder what I'll uncover in the next 12 months. Like the last few months, I won't be posting as often because I anticipate much of my research time will not provide any concrete results to share.
I do have a little something cooking that could turn out to be interesting--I'm hoping to get a regional publication to do a story about my Murray line. I've got my fingers crossed I'll be able to uncover distant relatives who have puzzle pieces to share.
