The objective of the blog is for others to receive insight and inspiration in doing their family history research. It is an evolving method of communication and input from reviewers is welcome.
This morning I randomly looked at my blog gophergenealogy.blogspot.com and was shocked to find the following update. There were 50,000 in February 2015. In January 2017 there were 100,000. Will it make 150,000 by this January?

Thank you to those who take the time to read my posts. It truly is a miracle that I am writing. The past couple of years have involved so many volunteer hours at the Watts House and in Columbia County, Oregon. I am speaking less and working more for clients. On Wednesdays I volunteer four hours at the local Family History Center. This week I am returning to Gladstone Family History Center to do two classes on research at familysearch.org in Spanish. We will see how I do with my rusty Spanish. It will be great to visit with so many genealogy friends. Please come if you are able, free and a free lunch. From 9-3. Information and syllabus available at http://milwaukiefamilyhistoryconference.blogspot.com/
Saturday I attended the seminar in Milwaukie, Oregon at the Milwaukie Center, with CeCe Moore as the speaker, put on by the Genealogical Forum of Oregon. It was a fantastic program on DNA research. The speaker was so motivating in encouraging me in wanting to do more of this type of testing and discovering more about my ancestors. We had a wonderful lunch and enjoyed visiting with so many friends. Then I bought way too many books, but I am prepared for reading when I take breaks from working on the DNA results. Thank you to my friend Tricia Oberndorf from St. Helens for driving and helping me cart the books home.
