Daily Prompt: Island of Misfit Posts
by michelle w. on June 23, 2013
We all have something we’d like to write about, but that doesn’t really “fit” our blog. Write it anyway.
I would love to add a ‘Genealogy’ page to my blog, but I have accrued much information and think it would be best to start a new blog for Genealogy. With help from some cousins, we were able to trace my father’s line back into the 1400’s.
I was in the process of writing a book, just for my dad, and nearly had it finished when my computer crashed. It actually crashed while I was trying to back it up.
It made me sick, literally. I haven’t had the heart yet to restart the project. One of my cousins passed away, and one I just lost track of, and the one that lives nearest to me is happy with a little book he printed and sold to us himself. His book starts with the first of our ancestor’s that came into New York, around 1640.
Me, I wanted to know everything about all of them and luckily I still have most of my information, I would just have to start piecing it all back together again. I hope to get it finished before my 75 year old dad passes. He is in good health, so I hope to have him, at least, another 25 years.
Thank you, Daily Post, for putting this back in my head again and giving me a boost to get back on it!
