I know this won’t be easy as I don’t really know a lot about them and my wife doesn’t know that much either. I’ve been looking up a few things on Ancestry today and I see I have a pretty tough challenge ahead of me!
The exciting thing about it is that it almost feels like it did 13 years ago, when I first started researching. I didn’t know anything at all back then and it took me almost 6 months of poking and probing every little bit of info out of my aunts and uncles before I was finally able to make a breakthrough and discover my great-grandparents!
Why the change? Because I am just now realizing that even though I said I wanted to leave a legacy for my children and grandchildren, I’m actually only leaving them half of a legacy. They would know a lot about their dad (or grandpa’s) heritage but nothing about their mother (or MiMi). I think it is high time that I changed that!
I’ll still continue to do research on my side but I am now going to be including my wife’s side also. The only question now is whether to do it on this domain or at Blogger. I am looking in to whether I can have a dual install of WordPress on my domain, with the second install being under a sub-domain or something similar. The good thing is that I still have a bit to think about it as I am just starting to try to discover all these new folks, or should I say Foulks! Who knows, I may just implement it all into this blog! After all, it is still MY research!
I’ll update yo more on this in the next few days. For now, I’m off to try to teach myself some new tricks!
