It is now 2010 and the start of a new decade. During the past year Shared Ancestors has gone through many changes and improvements but our “growing pains” have been minimized by the support of our wonderful members. And to kick off the new year here is the January 2010 newsletter. It includes genealogy, highlighting Henegar and Martha Rule Roberts with photos and a short bio written in the late 1800s, some great New Years Day info, recipes, our monthly mystery photo, family news, and more. We hope you enjoy your copy and when you are done we’d like for you to pass or send it to your family and friends!
Shared Ancestors and GeneaBlogs are now stable sites with the most up to date security and we feel that it is time to expand our membership base. We anticipate that 2010 will bring growth not only in our membership, but also in new genealogy info, articles, family trees, etc. We look forward to what 2010 will bring and will continue to strive to provide you with the most enjoyable and excellent experience that we can.
As usual, we are already working on February’s newsletter. Since February celebrates “romance” we are asking for member contributions that follow this theme. Please submit your family stories, photos, letters, etc: Did grandma write letters to grandpa while he was away at war? Do you have a story about how Mom and Dad met? How about that unique and wonderful way your significant other proposed to you? All contributions are welcome and will be published in our next newsletter. And, of course, we always need and welcome ANY member contributions such as family recipes, obituaries, introduce yourself, etc.
We hope you enjoy January’s newsletter and we would like to take this time to thank all of our members for their support. From the staff at Shared Ancestors and GeneaBlogs we wish you and yours a Happy New Year!
