I started blogging on 2 Nov 2008, so just over three years. When I originally started my blog, it was on Blogger. Originally it was titled Climbing The O’Connell Family Tree. When I started to blog it was to keep track of my research which was mostly on my O’Connell line. After five months of blogging, it was obvious that my research was not going to be only on my O’Connell line. If I did, my genealogy life would probably be non-existent at this time. This line has been the hardest for me to research.
So, I decided to make some changes. First, I moved the blog over to WordPress because I liked the crisp look it had. Then I changed the name of the blog, because I was searching for more than O’Connell family members. That is how Finding Our Ancestors was started. Today, I will share the 10 most popular posts since I have started blogging.
