Proud to Be a Geneablogger!

I can't believe that over the weekend this Southern Branches blog hit 1000 page views AND was welcomed to the geneablogger family. Since publishing my most recent post on Thursday, it has been viewed over 200 times. For those of you who are not social networkers, community members, or challenge acceptors I'm letting you know now that it's WORTH IT! The genealogy community is full of such generous, kind, and helpful people (not that there aren't exceptions but I'm an optimist, so lets not talk about that now ;).

Here are a few great facebook groups that I'm in that offer really great community:

Genealogy Do-Over

Book of Me, Written by You

If you're more into Google+ then here are 2 more I use:



I wanted to take this brief moment to especially thank Thomas MacEntee. The many hours and days and weeks, etc that he has put into creating the geneabloggers community are so appreciated by us all. I also want to thank you, Thomas, for making available your research log for FREE! It already proven helpful in my research during the Genealogy Do-Over. I have ALSO adapted it for use in organizing a remodeling project at my church and for project management in my business. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Anyway, I have many, many blog posts in the works and am trying not to get overwhelmed but just plug away. (Maybe Thomas's project management spreadsheet will help, lol!) Hopefully I will be publishing another post in the next 24 hours. Thanks for reading, my geneablogger buddies!
