Genealogy is all about family.
After all, genealogy IS family.
As followers of my genealogy website here I wanted to tell you about a bit of a change in direction with our genealogy postings here at Onward To Our Past and why this is.
Some of you may know that my better half has been in a fight against brain cancer for some years now. She has fought, and continues to fight, it every day. Day in and day out. Recently however we got the news that the tumor has gone into a very aggressive mode and is now Stage IV. We have made the decision for in-home hospice care and I continue to be her primary caregiver.
Naturally this is a time for soul searching, reflection, prayer, and meditation.
I will certainly be continuing to post genealogy-related information, but I hope you won’t mind, and will find enjoyable, the fact that many of them will be a bit more introspective and family oriented. Genealogy has always centered on family, but now it takes on a deeper meaning within our household and extended family.
So for awhile at least my posts will be a bit more personal, reflective, and delving into the meaning and importance of family history, genealogy, and our ancestry.
I owe these stories to my better half and Editor-in-Chief. I hope you enjoy joining us!
