Happy New Year!
 
We welcome the new year with new hopes and dreams.
Intermittent rain and snow are welcomed for their water content.  We like the sunshine in-between the showers.
Take time to do a little genealogy, be it searching for a new records or sharing information with family members.
Remember, most websites are adding new information, so check back to see if your ancestor has another record.
