My 7th Blogiversary...Belated

I just realized that I actually missed my blogiversary this year. Oops! It was on April 5th. How is it possible that my blog is already seven years old? It's hard to believe. But, I really am glad that I began this blog on April 5, 2012. It's been a fun and rewarding way to share my family history.

So much has happened in our family since my last blogiversary in April of 2018. It mostly centered around caring for my Mom, who was diagnosed with Dementia, most likely Alzheimer's, in November of 2017. It was heartbreaking to watch her decline throughout the year. On October 27, 2018 she passed away and is now free from pain and suffering. I like to think about how happy my Mom and Dad must be to be together again.

There were also happy times in our family during 2018: spending time with family, vacations, celebrating birthdays, etc. We also welcomed our fifth grandchild into our family in 2018. She's absolutely adorable! We love her and all of our grandchildren so much.


Thank you to my wonderful readers for taking the time to read my posts and for leaving comments over the years. I appreciate your support very much!

  1. Happy 7th, Jana. I enjoy your posts and hope you are able to get back to blogging regularly. :)

  2. Congratulations on the blogiversary.

    And I am sorry about your mother. My mother, who is 88, now has some form of dementia, and my father died in February. It is so very hard to see her this way. Life can be so cruel.

    1. Thank you Amy.

      I'm so sorry to hear about your mom and dad.

  3. Happy 7th Blogiversary, Jana. Your Follow Friday ~ Fab Finds is what brought my attention to your blog when I first began blogging. I miss those. But taking time out for family is more important.

  4. Happy 7th Anniversary, Jana! I love reading your posts & hope you will continue for many more years.

  5. You have had a year, that's for sure, so no wonder you missed it. But not by much! Happy Blogiversary to you.

  6. Wishing you a happy 7th blogiversary and many more. Thank you for sharing not just your genealogy ideas but some of your life insights as well.

  7. Happy Blogiversary Jana! Time flies when you're writing family history. Congratulations!

  8. Well, when I see that you have a blogiversary, I know that mine was just a couple of weeks behind yours - so I have missed mine as well. But seeing this today, I'm only a day behind ... for now! Happy 7th! Life has interrupted my blogging as well. May this be a year full of joy and memories.

    1. Thank you Kathy! And Happy Blogiversary to you too!

  9. Happy Blogiversary Jana! I miss the good ol' days when there was a more vibrant online genealogy community.
