It's My Blogiversary!

 Where does the time go?!?  It was two whole years ago and 298 posts ago that I realized there was a side club for genealogy in the blogosphere and I had never known it.  I started Mascot Manor Genealogy and… well… here we are!

 It’s been a wonderful experience and a very supportive environment.  Through this blog, I have found several cousins and other relations, all of whom are very special to me.   

My cousin (and friend) in Scotland found me through this blog and helped me to find that we are indeed cousins and that we do indeed come from Ireland.  She also helped me through the very difficult time this year of losing my dad.   

Other cousins and family previously unknown have shown me pictures, maps, treasures and data.  I can never tell you enough the joy each of those emails brings.

Being known as, “That Meerkat Lady” makes me smile.  So thank you.

Looking forward to what this year of blogging brings!
