Spring Cleaning and Updates

I have spent a good portion of the evening doing some spring cleaning of my blog. I am proceeding to go through the blog links I have to make sure they are current and still working. I am about half way through them, so not done yet. I have also added a few new blog links. There are so many blogs now, I am not sure I will ever get through them all, but I am certainly going to try. I understand there are over 400 genealogy blogs that belong to the Genea-Bloggers group alone.

I recently joined Twitter, maybe a few weeks ago? I am still learning to use it but so far it is fun, handy and informative! I have added some information from my Twitter account to the side panel of this blog. If you have a Twitter account you can follow me, my user name is Cherpal.

My Facebook account has also needed some tender loving care so I have worked a tiny bit with it. I need to clean it up and respond to so many requests still though! Please feel free to add me as a Facebook friend. You can find me on Facebook as Cheryl Fleming Palmer.

I also wanted to let you know, if you don't already, that I have a second blog. My second blog is The Graveyard Rabbit of South Alameda County. Have you heard of the Graveyard Rabbits? I am a charter member of the Association of Graveyard Rabbits. Here is a description of what we are all about.

"An association dedicated to the academic promotion of the historical importance of cemeteries, grave markers, and the family history to be learned from a study of burial customs, burying grounds, and tombstones; and the social promotion of the study of cemeteries, the preservation of cemeteries, and the transcription of genealogical/historical information written in cemeteries."

Feel free to browse the rabbit site! I added a post to that site today. You can subscribe and join as a follower if you so choose. I would like to add more links and things to that blog also. It all takes time, but it is fun to see the progress, slow but sure. Check it out!

Actually I should say it is all a work in progress!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!

  1. Good for you! I need to do some serious cleaning at my various sites too. As for Twitter, I still don't know what I am doing out there.

  2. Hi lindalee,
    Another slow project that takes time away from other things I would rather be doing, but it needs to be done! Making progress! I am working with Twitter trying to learn as I go. I suppose if I do something wrong somone will tell me. ;) Sometimes we learn by just doing! Thanks for the comment!
