One Year Blogiversary

I can’t believe it’s been a year already! And what a year it was. From having done nothing at all in the area of genealogy to researching closed archives with special permission, I’ve done a lot this past year. I’ve had my ups and downs in posting as well, both in number of posts per month as in content. Sometimes it was just a silly, little post, no more than a reminder that I was still alive and kicking, this last month a good testimony of that. But sometimes I produced posts I’m still very, very proud of.

And although an anniversary is always a good time to look back, I think it’s an even better time to look forward. So, I’ll lift a tip of the veil and show you some of what I am planning for my second year blogging!

You’ll hear more about the primary people I am now researching, namely Lodewijk Wesselo (writing his biography now), Adolph Knura (his Dutch period) and Salomon Mulder (in particular his time as a POW). There are also two series in the planning, one which will chronicle my journey to uncover the truth behind a family legend and another series about the Dutch monarchs.

So, plenty to look forward to this next blogging year. Onwards, I say!
