New Year - New Blog

January seems like a good time to start new things and establish goals (rather than resolutions) for the year.

I haven’t blogged before, but wanted to start documenting my journey to become a certified genealogist.

This isn’t a new goal for me, but rather one I have been working on for many years. However, in the past three years, I have accelerated my timeline for completing this goal.

I’m hoping that setting goals in writing will help keep me on track.

I decided to start a blog to share my experience and lessons learned with others hoping that someone else can benefit from my journey.
