When I posted my first ”May I Introduce To You…” article on my blog LOOKING4ANCESTORS, little did I know that Thomas had the same idea for a column here at GeneaBloggers. Since we were on the same wavelength, he asked if I would consider doing this as a regular feature. I agreed.
Each week I will be introducing you to a GeneaBlogger and their blog. I will be alternating between our seasoned veterans and our newbies. This week will be an exception as I will be posting two articles for the column, since I am playing a little bit of catch-up.
To start us off, I am re-posting my first “May I Introduce To You…” article.
May I introduce to you Miriam Midkiff Robbins?
Miriam is well established in the geneabloggersphere. She has been blogging since January 2006. Her two blogs are AnceStories: The Stories of My Ancestors and AnceStories2: Stories of Me for My Descendants.
Both of Miriam’s blogs are interesting and informative. On her AnceStories blog, Miriam shares her research tips and ideas for family history and blogging. She shares her own discoveries in her personal family history research as well.
With AnceStories2, Miriam has tapped into the idea of journal writing about ourselves for our descendants via blogging. I have spent some time reading past posts on AnceStories2. The ideas Miriam has shared certainly are inspiring. In her first post she says “Have you ever thought how wonderful it would be if you came across a diary or journal of one of your ancestors…one that not only documented the details of their everyday lives, but also those of their character, personality, and interests?”
Just by participating in these Weekly journaling prompts you too can leave a diary of yourself and your life for your future descendants to read.
I’m accepting Miriam’s invitation to blog about me for my descendants. I will be spending some time over the next few months following the journaling prompts on AnceStories2.
You know what a treasure it would be to find such a diary or journal about your ancestors. Why not leave your descendants a treasure? Visit AnceStories2: The Stories of Me For My Descendants and accept Miriam’s invitation to participate in the journaling prompts. Your descendants will thank you.
