Season’s Greetings 2021

Sepia Saturday 601 and the Genealogy Blog Party: The holiday season is upon us — and that’s when Molly’s Canopy traditionally takes a winter break so I can relax, kick back and recharge.

This has been a joyous year writing about my maternal German and Italian ancestors and their lives in Gloversville, Fulton Co., N.Y. — particularly because of their rich photo legacy.

Amazing how much can be learned by piecing together the clues in photographs, maps and records to tell the ancestral story! And how the process gets those family photos scanned.

The same held true for the April 2020 A to Z blogging challenge, in which I chronicled my early teen years — and thoroughly enjoyed the fond memories conjured up by family photos, news stories and my teen journal entries.

The biggest surprise was how many people shared similar memories of the era’s happenings — such as the New York World’s Fair, the first space flights and swooning over rock ‘n’ roll stars.

Many thanks to my readers and relatives who followed along and shared valuable observations (among them the Sepia Saturday regulars, my Geneabloggers colleagues, and visitors from the monthly Genealogy Blog Party). You made this a magical year of blogging for Molly’s Canopy — and renewed my hope that the New Year will be just as fulfilling.

Happy Holidays to you and yours from Molly’s Canopy! Please stop back in January 2022 when regular blogging resumes. Meanwhile, please visit the blogs of other Sepia Saturday participants.

  1. Thanks for your wonderful stories this year. It’s been a terrific year for bloggers everywhere I think. One nice benefit of quarantine lockdowns. I wish you and your family much peace and love for the new year.

  2. Happy holidays to you too. It’s been fun reading about your Italian and German relatives! You’ve obviously done a lot of patient research on them. Well done! Merry, merry!!
