Happy July 4th everyone!

 

Remember while you are gathered with your family to ask questions and bring out photographs that you don’t know anything about in the hopes that someone attending the family gathering does know something.

Today is The Passionate Genealogist’s blogiversary. I started this blog three years ago and my first post was “Family History: Hobby, passion or obsession?” It was definitely all three for me.

Over the years I have had the opportunity to meet many other genealogy bloggers at conferences in the States and Canada. It has been fun to share stories and our passion for genealogy. I have started interviewing some of the bloggers that I meet and it has been interesting to hear how they got started with family history.

Other Geneabloggers who are celebrating a blogiversary today are:

Genedocs: Family Research and Legacy Preservation – celebrating their second blogiversary

All Roads Led to London – celebrating their first blogiversary

Happy Birthday Everyone!

To all my readers in the United States – Happy Fourth of July! I hope you are all enjoying the picnics, barbeques and family gatherings. Tonight will be the big night for fireworks.

While you are enjoying all the family gatherings why not sit down with one of the senior members of the family and have a chat. See what stories they might have to tell. You may find out something new about the family.
