I realized quickly, with the lack of records for my family, that I’d really have to “think outside the box”. I LOVE to interview people, and ask about "the older days" in Mecklenburg. I also study USGS maps, plats, read chanceries, look for long forgotten cemeteries and try help preserve some of those memories people share with me. Feel free to sign my guestbook stating surnames you are looking for, who you're related to etc. Always a work in progress, a work that I truly love!

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.
