I'm now a blogger.
This is not an exclusive club, I know. There are millions of bloggers in cyberspace and the ranks grow by some 70,000 every day. But the mere fact that you've found me makes me feel special. I hope that you find what I have to offer is special, too.
As the name of my blog suggests, this is a place to share stories about family and personal history. I'll tell you about some of the many people who have made researching family history the No. 2 hobby in the United States. I'll give you tips on how you can save your own family history before it can slip away. I'll also share with you stories from my own family, the very people who inspired me launch my own personal history business.
But I don't want to take this journey alone. Please post your comments about what I've written, or share your own stories through the comments section.
To get things started, I want to tell you about Don Crowdis, who has been called "the world's oldest blogger." A resident of Toronto, the 93-year-old Crowdis composes his "Don to Earth" blog by longhand at his kitchen table, then mails them to New Brunswick where a family member types them and posts them. Crowdis has created a devoted readership with his recollections of a lengthy and colorful family history. You can find his blog here.
