I just can’t believe it’s been two years to this day since I started this blog and made my first post.
My, how the time has flown.
I have made so many discoveries about my family and shared so many special moments with new-found cousins, and cousins that I met just last year that already it seems as if I have known them a lifetime. Had I not started this blog, my life would not be what it is today.
I didn’t break a brick wall this past year, but I put some chips in a few. I’ll keep chipping away and plugging on, and telling our stories here. I guess it’s just what I do now.
I know you are chomping at the bit to find out what goodies I’m giving away this time, but first I would like to share some statistics with you from my site.
I know last year that I told you how many cousins I had met, and how many pictures I had identified, and it’s so much more over the past year, there is no way now to keep up with all that. I have been blessed beyond words.
Without further ado, and just like last year, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking this journey with me. I couldn’t have done this without the support of each, and every one of you.
So, to show you my appreciation, I’m going to be giving away some super prizes. I know you are just itching to get your hands on them!
First up, a one year membership to Fold3.com.
That’s right folks, the kind people at Fold3.com have sponsored this giveaway and are giving one of my lucky blog followers a one year paid membership.
Second up, a one year membership to Newspapers.com.
Yep, the kind people over at Newspapers.com have also sponsored this giveaway and are giving one of my lucky blog followers a one year paid membership.
And, last but not least, one happy camper will get from me a $30 gift card to Blurb.com where you can make a keepsake of your own happy memories.

Good luck, and here’s the question:
If you could be any one of your ancestors for a day, who would you pick and why?
