I finally took time yesterday to do something I have been wanting to do for awhile now. It has been several years since I started genealogy and blogging. Many cousins have been found. But, how many? Who? I have not kept any kind of system to log these cousin contacts. I was past due, do I even remember all of them? Well, that was the goal here. I started a spreadsheet of "Cousins Found." I titled columns with things like, phone number, address, email address, surname, how/where we made contact, and if I have met them. I am all about meeting my living cousins and their family members, it does my heart good, plus you never know how long they will be with us. Of course, they may also have information to help us in our genealogy research. I started listing the cousins names I remembered making contact with, those were cousins I generally keep in contact with anyway, so that was easy.

I am following Tonia's Roots as she brings several GeneaBloggers through 31 weeks of working towards a better blog, prompts written by Darren Rowse. Here is this weeks challenge adapted from Darren Rowse's daily challenges which Tonia is doing as weekly challenges: Ever run out of things to write about on your blog? If your answer is yes – you’re not alone. This weeks's task is to do an exercise that will identify a range of post ideas that you can use when stuck for an idea in future.

Msteri, what a wonderful quilt! Is is yours? I have one (on loan from my sister) that my Great Grandmother Eva Belle made around 1900! It's a keeper for sure. Thanks for sharing a great Wordless Wednesday photo friend!ReplyDelete

Yes, the quilt is mine! I had one when I was growing up on my bed and it got torn up, so my mother got rid of it. I had such memories of that quilt. I was fortunate enough to receive this last year because I missed my other so much. It was the last one not given away! So, you have one on "loan?" Would love to see it! Thank you for commenting!
C, where did that come from? Who made it?ReplyDelete
(only slightly jealous)
Grandmother Lundberg made it!
