It has been three years since I have started writing. Thanks to Thomas MacEntee at GENEABLOGGERS for reminding me and mentioning my blog. I knew the anniversary date was soon, but I thought it was after Christmas. When I started I had no clue what I was doing, sometimes I feel that I still don’t.
Looking back I feel it is more on the order of a research summary and questions to decide how and where to proceed. I really have learned a lot in a short period of time.
What I have done was to find collateral families of my ancestors that I did not know existed. I am currently trying to find what happened to them since I can not even find the Michael Downs Family in the census.
I have started to volunteer doing research at the Diocese of Pittsburgh Archives , and indexing on Family Search. I am even getting better at reading the old style German writing script. I would like to assist on the indexing of the Pennsylvania Deaths and Birth which now will be made public after the bill was signed into law by Governor Corbett of Pennsylvania.
I am hopeful that I will find as much more information in the next three years as I have found in the past.
