Scrap Your Roots - A New British Columbia Genealogy Blog

There's a new genealogy blogger from British Columbia, Canada at Scrap My Roots!

Sue Dombrowski, a member of the same online Scrapaholics Meetup Group I'm in, just decided to enter the blogging world. Her passion is: family history and preserving our family roots.

She's been researching her family for a while and has now joined a local genealogy group. This is one of the very best moves any genealogist can make, in my opinion. There's no sense re-inventing the wheel, now is there? Others researching before you and with you have advice and information to share, but besides that, they will understand what you are talking about - well, most of the time! I'm just going to flash this GEDCOM onto my stick, check that #921's mum's BMD EE cite, then download it all into my PAF and then upload to my site...

And, of course, they will be better able to commiserate with you about those inevitable burned or water soaked 'lost' records no one can find (or maybe read yet without expensive and scarce space age technology), and to congratulate you on the many great 'finds' you will have. Let's face it, family and friends don't always understand how frustrating and how exciting this genealogical research can be.

On-line, there's no better group for genealogical bloggers than the Genea-Bloggers, too. Hope Sue will join us there soon.

Welcome to the genealogical blogging world, Sue! I have chosen to award your blog a 'One Lovely Blog Award'. I can see you are off to a great start.

Thank you so much for your kind words and the lovely award. I'm now a follower of your blog too. I'm looking forward to meeting you at one of the scrapaholics meetings soon and we can exchange 'genea-notes'. Who knows, maybe we have mutual ancestors in our closets!
