I've been considering blogging as a way to resolve my family history brick walls for several years. In fact, I created this blog in 2006 or 2007, I think. Unfortunately, family circumstances didn't permit me to spend time on blogging.
When time became available, I debated about the blog again. At that time, my concerns were more practical -- privacy. Since this impacts my brother and his family as well as me, I was concerned that I'd be "giving too much away" if I blogged about my grandparents.
Fast forward a few years, I've decided that talking about my grandparents isn't likely to cause irreparable harm. They're all deceased (as of 1997), and my parents are both deceased, too.
I've decided to concentrate on my mother's family. In particular, I'm going to try and work through the brick walls of her father's family. I've chosen this side of my family in part because I've worked them back the farthest, and in part because it's the only part of my family that allegedly arrived before the Revolution.
