POST 1000

When I started this blog back on Jan23, 2007, I really didn't know how
long I would stick with it and how far I might go. I certainly wouldn't
have thought I'd write 1000 posts. But I have. I've been blessed with
a plethora of ancestors, direct and collateral, who have provided me
with plenty of blog fodder with no end in sight. There are the silly posts
as well, like the Word Verification Dictionary and the genealogical uses
of flutaphone, and I've thrown in some poetry as well.

Besides the rewards of writing and exercising my mind, I've benefited in
other respects from West in New England. There have been the relatives
who've found me through seeing this blog, and there are the other
geneabloggers (some of whom are distant cousins!) who have befriended me,
offering me advice and giving me assistance in my family research. I'm hoping
to meet many of you face to face in the years ahead.

So, thank you all for the comments and encouragement. I really appreciate it,
and on to post 2000!
