That idea seldom works with most sites or blogs, but in genealogy it does seem to be true. I have just received a message from a cousin in New Zealand who found this blog! How great is that I suppose it is slightly easier for my long lost relatives to track me down, I do have quite an unusual surname, but even so, I’m sure it can work for the more popular names too. After all, there may be lots of Browns, for example, but how many of them lived in the same locale as your family, and did the same jobs etc.
So, my tip for the day, build a site, or set up a blog. Both are a great way of storing and organising your data, and you never know who might drop by!
