Number 3

The We Tree Genealogy Blog is three years old today!

My third birthday.

I started this blog so I could talk about genealogy, even when no one wanted to hear me talk about genealogy. That happened.

I started this blog hoping that distant cousins would connect with me and provide answers to our common family history. That happened.

What I didn't expect was to meet so many wonderful friends, gracious readers and fellow bloggers along the way, many of whom are like family now. That happened.

So thanks for three great years. I plan on many more to come.

  27. I have learned a lot. But on another note "nice bangs" I guess your mom didn't want to take you to get a haircut every 4 weeks.

    (I had those same bangs when I was 3)
