Back In the Saddle

I have been absent from my blog for over a year but am back in the saddle with this post.  The past year has been extremely busy for me genealogically speaking, hence, no time for blogging. 

I am poised for 2013 to be the year of huge things happening with me personally and with my genealogy research. 

On August 20, 2012 I submitted my portfolio for certification to the BCG.  I am on pins and needles waiting to hear from them.  The timeframes stated are 4-6 months and this is the 6th month.  The old adage of a "watched pot never boils" couldn't be more accurate in this instance.

I am also submitting an ancestor, Paul Ernstberger, to the DAR for approval as a NEW Revolutionary War veteran with my daughters as the applicants.  We have a preliminary and unofficial approval based on Supply Tax lists from Bedford County, Pennsylvania.  The whole application will need to be submitted with all the documentation but we, my husband and I, are confident this will also be a success.

My project for February is to participate in the Family History Writing Challenge sponsored by The Armchair Genealogist.  My posts for that project will be here as well.

Hope I get some of my old subscribers back reading my blog.  It was so fun to get comments of different posts.

To all of those also participating in the Writing Challenge, keep up the great work.
