Genealogy Funny – Tip #4
Happy New Year! May of 2013 marked the launch of Padilly’s Melting Pot, and I am so excited about my plans for 2014! However, in addition to planning the year ahead, I also took time to reflect on my past two years of genealogy research, and what I have learned: that I’m still a newbie and can’t do this alone!
In honor of this self-discovery, I created Genealogy Funny – Tip #4, and have made plans to branch out beyond my solo computer research, which includes joining my local genealogy society, and my favorite find this past month, The Guild of One-Name Studies, affectionately called GOONS by its members. Yes, I am still working on my computer with GOONS, but a site such as this helps you build a one-on-one relationship with the person managing the study. Two of my family names are being studied on this site, and I have already communicated with those individuals (who might be distant cousins). If you have not heard of GOONS, I suggest you check it out.
Have a great 2014!
