Happy 2017 New Year!
2016 was a lost year for this website as I struggled with merging desktop genealogy databases, and rebuilding sources (still underway). Probably the most frustrating thing last year was trying to get the new RocketTheme Gantry 5 and New Template working. There is NO Upgrade path - so I need to recreate from scratch as best as I can determine. For now, I am sticking with the my old Gantry 4 template in 2017, and looking at alternative methods. I will be working from scratch at another URL building using a Gantry 5 template, and if that does not work for me I will look at other template alternatives.
My Focus in 2017 is to Write More, and improve the overall content level on this site. While 2016 was a lost year for updates on this website, and I did not actively participate in the Annual February Family History Writing Challenge, my plans are to be more involved with it in 2017. The Writing Challenge is one of a few goals I have for 2017. The Family History Writing Challenge will continue to have Daily Dose emails to inspire and prompt writing, but it is moving away from the past Forum approach of previous years, and changing the forum to be a Facebook Group. I will have to see how that works as I have been adverse in using Facebook in the past. This activity starts the beginning of February.
