I wrote this post in October 2010 and never posted. I now want to share what my thoughts were at that time:
WoW, it has been a while since I posted on my Blog.
In November of 2009, I became unemployed. At that time I knew I wanted to take sometime off, so I got to travel, read, and do some research.
When I started to look for work again, it turned out to be harder than I imagined and I had to take a break from doing anything with my Faimly’s History.
Although I have not done any Research, I have made some significant discoveries and made some connections. I will be Blogging about them in the future.
Now that I am somewhat settled, I want to get back into doing my Research, but I didn’t know where to start, especially since I can’t remember where I left off.
It turned out to be much more than that for me. I didn’t have anything going on in my own Research, but now I have an opportunity to help someone in theirs.
We all come to some point when our Family Research is stalled, but why should someone elses be. I have a chance of helping a Descendant connect with an Ancestor. This is imortant to me. I have a chance to pay it forward. I have been wanting to get involved in something for quite sometime.
Now I am working on my 5th set of records. I know there is more to be done and will stick with the project until it is complete. Until every record have been indexed.
If you are reading this and have not done you’re 10, “Please Volunteer”!! These records are so important and will become a great resource for Researching(especially for African Americans) once they are completed.
