I realized quickly that I’d have to “think outside the box” to learn about my ancestors. I LOVE to interview people, and listen to stories about "the older days" when life seemed a little slower and simpler. I study USGS maps, plats, read chanceries, look for long forgotten cemeteries and try to help preserve memories people share with me. This blog is ad free, so it's easier to focus on sharing stories. Feel free to sign the guestbook, or join the FaceBook group. Even if we aren't related by DNA, I'd still love to hear about your research efforts and family stories. I am interested in posting (to this blog) stories relevant to the Mecklenburg-Brunswick families.

Update 23 Mar 2011:
So my latest goal of blogging every 2 weeks didn't work out so well. Had another round of craziness that put me way behind again on projects like keeping up with my blog. But I'm trying to slowly ease back in to sharing records I've found. See posting 23 Mar 2011 of current project being worked on about sharing records.

Nov 2010:
My apologies I've not kept up so well with my blog. A few things got the best of me, temporarily. Now I'm ready to start up more researching, and blogging. My goal is to post every two weeks. I have several ideas in mind for the next several posts.
