Proud to be a family history blogger

Letter P: Sixteenth of twenty-six posts in the April 2016 Blogging From A to Z Challenge. Wish me luck and please join me on the journey!

I am proud and honored to be a family history blogger — sharing my ancestors’ stories over the past two years to preserve them for future generations.

But I am also humbled by the breadth of research and eloquent online prose shared by thousands of intrepid and creative genealogy bloggers — many of whom have been at this much longer than I have.

So imagine my delight when one of those genealogy bloggers — Michelle Ganus Taggart of A Southern Sleuth and the MIITY Team — reached out to interview me for the GeneaBloggers series on family history bloggers.

When May I Introduce To You…Molly Charboneau appeared yesterday on Thomas MacEntee’s GeneaBloggers website, I felt warmly welcomed and embraced by the genealogy blogging community — and inspired to keep going as I celebrate my Second Blogiversary on April 24.

When sitting at a computer tapping out heartfelt heritage stories, it’s easy to wonder whether you are striking the right note, painting a true-to-life portrait of an ancestor, accurately describing your forbears’ place in history — or sharing the best techniques, advice and sources to help others find their roots.

Being interviewed for GeneaBloggers conveyed to me the reassuring message that my peers in the genealogy blogging community are able to connect with my ancestors’ stories on Molly’s Canopy — and that makes all the difference.

Thank you so much, Michelle — and everyone at GeneaBloggers. Your recognition is deeply appreciated!

  1. I missed your interview so will have to go follow it up. Trust me, you write great stories and have a distinctive personal voice.

  2. Your interview really resonated with me. I also love learning “how their personal story meshes with the history of the communities where they lived”.
    Congratulations on your blog. I’ll be adding you to my Feedly.

    1. Thanks so much, Jackie. I visited your blog and see that we both have Canadian roots. I will follow you back to learn more about how you place your ancestors in their historic settings.
