Motivation Monday - 500th post on Tuesday - already scheduled

Motivation Monday
500th post on Tuesday
already scheduled

The 'Week 34 - 75 years ago - of the Eileen KINNICK Diary' post is already scheduled as the Tuesday post this week (tomorrow); it will be the 500th post on this Blog, which had an Initial Post on Saturday, 19 Sep 2009. [My first blog, 2005-2009, stands as 482, mostly retired...]

That first post (too long, as most early blog posts tend to be, I have noticed) shared a report and a letter from 1995, when my wife and I really got serious about our family history and genealogy adventure. The 'report to our daughters' was titled:

Farmers of the Prairie; the people, the times, the places
A story of one family; created from many families

and was followed by a copy of the transmittal letter to our three daughters. I do make note that a lot of changes will be made as the research continued. I really had no way of knowing how true that would really be.

By the way, posts 501 and 502 are already posted for a few days hence… moving toward 1000 and beyond.

Families are, indeed, Forever!  ;-)


  1. Congratulations on this significant milestone, Dr. Bill!

  2. Thank you, Susan, it kind of snuck up on me, actually! ;-)

  3. Congratulations on achieving such an imrpessive total in two years. I like too your emphasis on telling "stories". We all have them in our families no matter how ordinary their lives may seem. Onto the next 500!

  4. Thank you, Susan D., for your kind comment. We are already well on the way to the next 500! ;-)
