2008 – The Year In Review

Inspired by DearMyrtle and following the lead of Randy Seaver at Genea-Musings, here is a quick review of last year’s posts:

Jan 2008 – Thomas Young Hemphill McEntire – I found an interesting biographical sketch on my 4x great-grandfather.

Feb 2008 – John Burgin, Esquire – I came across an ancestor (John Burgin, born 1777), who was styled, John Burgan, Esqr., in the 1820 census.

Mar 2008 – Revolutionary War Soldiers of Western North Carolina: Burke County, Volume I – I found a great source record last week at the library.

Apr 2008 – Columbus Public Library – On a recent business trip, I visited the Columbus Public Library in Columbus, GA.

Sep 2008 – Website Update – This summer, TNG came out with a new version of the software I use to power the family tree portion of  the website.

Oct 2008 – The Moral of the Story. . . – Since my last post, I’ve decided to completely redo both the genealogy site and the blog and now I’m left with a mess that includes not only a partially functioning database and loss of all my media links, but also a renewed determination to make this thing work like I want it to.

Nov 2008 – Where was the Ellis family in 1808? – Two hundred years ago my Ellis relatives were in Jackson County, Georgia, South Carolina, and possibly North Carolina.

Dec 2008 – Where Was the Wyatt Lankford Family in 1860? – This week I’m looking for ancestors of Leaty (Lankford) West, whose gravestone I found several weeks ago.

This was sort of fun –  looking back at the year’s posts, identifying gaps and patterns, and generating ideas for 2009.
