Shutterfly Photobook!

I have had great luck ordering photo items from Shutterfly. A few days ago I created a print of a vacation photo to decorate my apartment and noticed they were offering a special on photobooks. I started a genealogy book a few months ago but never finished it. This sale renewed my motivation!

I should have it in about a week and I'm very excited to see how it turned out. I'll share some of the pages one it arrives.

23 Match

A few weeks ago I received a match notification from 23andMe about another user who appeared to be a 1st/2nd cousin. I was intrigued by this because I think I know who all of my 1st and 2nd cousins are, and I wasn't aware of anyone else who was delving into the family history.

This evening I indirectly figured out who it was. I'm excited to see where this goes because it sounds like there may be some interesting genetic traits to compare!

Hiatus Update

Over the last few months I have been having trouble fitting genealogy, and as an extension - this blog, into my life. In the next two weeks I hope to be back on track :)
