I have been reading a blog from one of our cousins now for quite a while and realized only lately that perhaps I should be sharing this enjoyment with others. Laurie Stone, has a great little blog called Pride of West Virginia. it can be found at www.prideofwestvirginia.org and has what I like to call the 'meat' of family history. Stories about the life and times of our ancestors, not just who they married and when they died. There is a great deal of Caperton 'life' in the pages of her blog and I encourage you to have a look at them. You can even sign up and receive the blog in you email as it is updated.

Well that was fun! ok maybe fun is not the right word, but it was certainly entertaining. As mentioned in previous posts, I have been working to upgrade the site to the newest edition of the Content Management System or 'software' that runs the site. I took a major leap forward over the holidays and while it got a bit bumpy in a couple of places it looks like all will be fine! The site is live again and you should be able to log in with the same username and password you used previously. As of this moment, there are still quite a few collections that require 'assimilation back into collective',

Happy New Year! As we move into the new year it provides an opportunity to look back at the previous year and take stock in our accomplishments. My hope is that as you look back you are satisfied with what you see. There is talk by some that 2012 is our last year together due to the upcoming apocalyptic ending on its way. While I enjoyed the movie, I am really hopeful that the ending is not that close as I still have way too many items on my Honey Do list! If you are interested in a more Genealogical year-end wrap up I would suggest that you visit http://www.tamurajones.net/MostPopularArticlesOf2011.xhtml While I don't always agree with Tamura's opinion, I have to admit that at least she always DOES have an opinion.
