About

Welcome to my Heritage Happens! I (Cheryl Palmer) started this blog to help me organize my genealogy, step by step. I  also experienced a need to share my trials and tribulations along this journey of learning about my family history.

During the two plus years that I have been blogging, I have gained so much more than I could have ever imagined. I have found new friendships through the GeneaBloggers community, thank you so much Thomas MacEntee for having the insight to build this community. The support and camaraderie from this community is totally awesome.

I have made many contacts with new found cousins, something that never crossed my mind as a possibility when I started this blog. I have added tremendously to my family tree with these connections. Connections with complete strangers, and non-bloggers as well, have brought new friendships, all of wish I cherish.

I occasionally participate in genealogy carnivals, all of which help evoke new thoughts and ideas. Sometimes we have documents and photos and take them for granted.  Time needs to be spent looking deeper into these documents and photos to gain new perspectives. Carnivals assist me in doing this.

I look forward to sharing more with you and hope you enjoy this blog. I also hope you choose to leave comments, they are an essential part of any blog. They support and guide us bloggers in so many ways. So please, I welcome your comments!
