Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.

A Very Grateful Thank You
Genealogical Forum of Oregon
Sweet Home Genealogical Society
Oregon Genealogical Society
Ohio Genealogical Society
International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies
Jewish Genealogical Society of Cleveland
Klamath Basin Genealogical Society
Jewish Genealogical Society of Oregon
Milwaukie Family History Center
Sacramento Public Library
Mt. Diablo Genealogical Society
Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando
Another big thank you goes to those societies with which I am involved on a regular basis as a volunteer. I serve on the boards of the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society and the Jewish Genealogical Society of Oregon, and I am the coordinator of the African American Special Interest Group (AA SIG) at the Genealogical Forum of Oregon (GFO). I am so happy to spend time with other individuals who are interested in the vitality of today's genealogical societies and work hard to keep them alive and thriving.
A special thank you goes out to Harold Hinds, another volunteer at GFO, who provides tremendous help and support for me with the AA SIG. Without his advice and guidance, the group would not be in as good shape as it is.
I was fortunate enough this past year to connect with cousins I did not know previously. I am especially grateful to them for their willingness to share family information and photos, which has helped my research into our shared families.
And since this is a blog, some of my most heartfelt thanks go to my readers. I appreciate every comment that is sent to me and that you find my writing a worthwhile expenditure of your time.
I have learned something from everyone this past year. I look forward to another year of learning and enjoying this obsessive hobby we all enjoy.
Happy new year!
