My Family History Year

This section in my TravelGenee blog is called “My Family History Year”. It is all about events in my ancestors lives on a particular date. The topic will bring to light my family history a day at a time. Yes, it will cover the obvious like births, marriages and death dates, however, these are just the start.

What will be covered all depends on what I discover when researching. I am thinking there are loads of newspaper articles, family events, census data and more to discover when researching my family history. The first post was written on 1 January 2014 and I hope to one day have an event for every day of the year. This might take a while so do come back and check out my blog again in the future.
