It was exactly one year ago today that "Passing It On" made its maiden voyage into the blogosphere. Now, 172 posts later, we’re still around and plan to be around for many more ramblings about family history and related genealogical issues. In fact, we plan to launch a monthly Passing It On newsletter next week. If you’d like to receive a copy, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll add you to the distribution list.
For old times’ sake, here’s a link to our first post.
Don Crowdis, the 93-year-old blogger mentioned in that initial post, appears to have stopped blogging but centenarian Olive Riley of Australia hasn’t. With help from assistant Mike Rubbo, the 108-year-old Olive has cranked out dozens of posts at her Life of Riley blog.
While you’re checking Olive out, I think I’ll have another slice of cake. And a hearty thank you to every reader, subscriber and commenter who offered words of encouragement over the past 12 months. It’s been fun.
