Wednesday the 21st
Readers of this blog will want to note that I have [mostly] changed careers. I am going to "convert" this blog into a real journal to help me go "Beyond the Horizon" moving forward with my life.
Guided and inspired by Thomas MacEntee, the Geneablogger, I am going to start to keep track of the work I am accomplishing in family history. Of course, every job I have had is about education and two have been about technology, so I have decided to leave the past posts here in case readers want to look at them for reference.
Yesterday, Family Tree Magazine, sent me an email to inform me that although I did not win the "Put Your Ancestral Photo on Our Cover" contest, they would like to use the photo I submitted in a 2010 calendar that they will be selling at their online store. I take this "event" as a sign that I am successfully moving forward with this career. I immediately stopped what I was researching and send off the photo with the information they requested giving them publication permission. I even located the name of the photography studio where the photo was taken in the 1919 Providence, RI City Directory. [Louis Fabian Bachrach]
On my tech side, a friend, famous for her skills in technology in education, gave me two books on Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 and 6! I am going to start learning this [new to me] software to improve my current knowledge of image manipulation in readiness for my new scanner I purchased as my Christmas gift.
Today, a fellow genealogist gave me a special gift of coin silver spoons. They are amazing and I will share them next week for "Treasure Chest Thursday".
I am completing Lisa Alzo's Writing Class this weekend. She has sent all the lessons and I just have two more to print and read. Inspired by this class, I have begun to write about The Defiant Daughter.
As a child, I kept a journal and have always been calendar addicted. Blogging is something I enjoy. I hope, dear readers, that you will enjoy this new journey with me!
