Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I am looking into learning more about certain lines of my family, but it is what is lost that I cannot replace. The stories of the people that are gone. Hopefully I will find something I do not expect, but either way, this is a connection to my past as I move to the future.
I am proud of my heritage and that matters. My great grandmother was a pioneer and a teacher. I will repeat history in that much, as I will help settle a new land and I am becoming a teacher. I will never forget my native roots either, although they are distant from myself, as they are also a part of me. I love this land, but there is another land I love more. It is not an easy journey that I prepare for, but I will know more about my family, which will help.
