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!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers!

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.

Today is Canada’s 145th Birthday.

In five years we will be celebrating our 150th birthday. Canada 150 is a program to help people write and share their family and community histories as a way to preserve and promote our history.

What projects can you think of that will help preserve our nations history for it’s 150th birthday?
