Over the last year or so, I’ve been changing the way I look at my family history. If you’ve read Mulling and Pondering My Genealogy Toolkit or maybe Clusters: What Do You Need To Research? you will have an idea of my adjusted focus.
The first cluster our ancestors lived in is always the family tree and we have to start there, but we can’t end there. Our ancestors have always lived in multiple clusters based on geography, religion, politics and more.
This next year I’m exploring and hopefully creating new tools that will help me and hopefully you gain a better understanding of who our people were. And just to fit into my new theme, I’ve renamed my blog Cluster Genealogy. You can still finding with it the Finding Forgotten Stories link. But I’m ready for a change — it’s time to look at our families in a different way.
Happy New Year!
