My plethora of excuses for not blogging include: 1) For whatever reason, I had a problem with a spammer on this blog that sort of deterred me a little but probably the biggest problem is 2) on my paternal side, I simply don’t have the family stories as I do on the maternal side of family. That’s partly due to having grown up around the majority of my maternal aunts, uncles, and cousins while my much smaller paternal side was scattered. It’s also due to the fact that yes, that side of my family simply did not talk about the past. I’ve refused to use that as an excuse in my research, so it definitely will should not be an excuse for my blogging.
With regard to my research for my paternal ancestors, I only have three goals for 2011.
- A research trip to Martin, Pitt, and Bertie Counties, NC.
- Scan all the pictures I inherited from Aunt Martha and distribute them to my cousins.
- Blog more!!!!!
