Accentuate the Positive Geneameme 2017

Well Geniaus has opened her Geneameme for the end of the year,  I have trimmed out the ones I have not done this year,  but here are my items for the ones I could think of something to say for.   Wishing everyone a very happy and healthy 2018.

James Greenslade – Insolvency

An important record I found was

Well I found what I believe is the Burial for George Mullins

My 2017 blog post that I was particularly proud of was

A new piece of technology I mastered was

Not really Family History related, but I built a music and video player from a Raspberry Pi and integrated it into my TV and music system.

A genealogy event from which I learnt something new was

Well I spent 3 days at the Who Do You Think You Are Live show in Birmingham and I learnt lots from the visitors to the Family Historian stand.

I taught a genimate how to

A great site I visited was

A new genealogy/history book I enjoyed was

Well not really a new book,  but I did post my 5 favourite books this year “Five Faves” Five of my favourite Family History Books

I am excited for 2018 because

You never know what the year might bring.

Another positive I would like to share is …

Keep looking – something new is always coming up and remember to check out sources on sites you don’t have subscriptions to, not everything is in one place.
