Old Categories – New Thoughts

I miss the older version where the writer could easily assign any number of categories to each post. That way both the writer and the readers could easily find posts of interest. For example I could easily look at all my genealogy posts going back to 2010 when I first started blogging.

Please WORD PRESS give us back our Categories.

Black cat – I would assign this image to the category CATS.

The Urge To Blog About My Immigrant Ancestors.

I want to continue my blog posts about my immigrant ancestors. In my case my ancestors on both my paternal and maternal sides were among the first settlers in New England – in Boston, Salem, western Massachusetts, southern New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New York. And I am finding a wealth of information about them. But as I delve into my family tree, I am finding mistakes and conflicting information re the details. So while I am gathering a lot of information it is taking time to sieve out truth and fiction. But rest assured the Immigrant Ancestors series will continue shortly with Immigrant Ancestors 4 and on. Meanwhile you can check out my previous posts for My Immigrant Ancestors 1, 2 and 3.
