The end has come

I am retiring the Ancestoring  blog for a couple of reasons. Now that MyHeritage has acquired Legacy,  my job description has changed (for the good) and I will be doing a lot more writing for Legacy News. I think it would be better for me to concentrate my blogging efforts there.

I feel overextended. I am going to give up several things that I am involved in to free up some time for myself and for my family. I am a serious Type A personality but there comes a time when something has got to give. I have been promising to sew a dress for my sweet granddaughter for a month now and the materials are still sitting on my sewing machine so…

I want to thank everyone that has supported the blog over the past five years. I have learned many things along with you as I did the background research for the posts.

I wish all of you the best in your genealogy/family history pursuits.

Sincerely,

Michele

  11. Michele,
    I think it is wonderful you are starting a new chapter in your life. I know exactly how you feel. I am sort of doing the same thing except I am starting to find time to become a better quilter. Time is very precious, and especially with your precious little granddaughter. I will miss your blog posts!
